Consistency and kindness reign at St. Clair
Balance seems to be what St. Clair is good at. Their restaurant is upscale without feeling out-of-bounds when you're dressed down, the staff is knowledgeable about the wine list without sounding snobbish, and the food is refined without the price tag.
M'tucci's Italian expands into retailing, ABQ not the best place for late night munchies, Santa Fe Spirits and Cacao Santa Fe spoil us rotten, Brixen's finally shows its face, someone keeps smashing up Taqueria Mexico and Kasey's closes because of some sad circumstances.
Buy heirloom tomatos, participate in gardening seminars, a cooking demonstration, browse the garden trade fair and great food.
