The recent snowstorm had us thinking about Christmas… chile. So we headed to Santo for New Mexican fare courtesy of Chef Hosea Rosenberg (who hails from the Land of Enchantment). Santo’s doing COVID-related precautions well, having implemented temperature checks, spaced-apart seating, outdoor dining (weather permitting) and meals from breakfast to dinner available for pick-up. We opted for the pork adovada burrito on a recent dine-in visit — succulent, chocolaty braised pork is wrapped in a tortilla with refried pinto beans, cheese, cilantro and onions, then, of course, smothered in red and green chile. You can pick one chile or the other too (or none, we suppose), but the brightness of the green and the warm spice of the red make a perfect pair.
