I had an excellent dinner of shared small plates the other night at Santa Fe's new Radish & Rye (http://www.radishandrye.com/) farm-inspired restaurant! Fried green tomatoes with sharp cheddar dip, grilled cauliflower with pecans and capers, radicchio salad with anchovy dressing, and hanger steak salad. Everything was super fresh and artfully composed. Radish & Rye is up there with Santa Fe’s other top restaurants like Joseph’s, Restaurant Martin, and Geronimo.
Two movies I recently saw and recommend: the documentary Amy and the YA-leaning Paper Towns based on the John Green novel. And two cool things in Santa Fe that I’m newly hooked on are the rowing machine at Santa Fe Spa (http://santafespa.info/) and the Coffee Date drink with decaf Iconik coffee, dates, pecan milk, kale, carrot juice, parsley, and cinnamon at Verde (http://verdejuice.com/). As for what I’m reading this summer—just finished Primates of Park Avenue and now I’m deep into Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave, which is set in Sonoma and wonderfully atmospheric while delving into the inner lives of a handful of appealing characters.
