Estevan patio


Chef Estevan Garcia spent many years in Dixon where at an early age he discovered his passion for cooking. While studying under the Franciscan Order for four years, he further developed the art of preparing old traditional native cuisine. He is a recognized originator of southwest regional cuisine and has been featured in major publications such as Gourmet, Bon Appétit and the New York Times.

Today, Chef Estevan redefines New Mexico cuisine with some of the most delicious culinary dishes. At our Santa Fe, NM restaurant, he creates food that is freshly prepared using ingredients from local farmers, serving it in an uncomplicated manner and giving it his special touch which allows the food to burst with natural flavor. Chef Estevan’s most popular appetizer is the Chile Relleno, a fresh green Chile filled with mushrooms and served with a delicate demi-glace chile sauce, pinto beans and fresh garlic. The absence of frying and breading makes this New Mexico favorite a healthy option and allows you to really taste the full flavor of the Chile.

Chef Estevan states “I like chile, and when you can fill it with fresh mushrooms and lay it over a delicious sauce, it just brings out a wonderful flavor.  It’s very New Mexican.”
