Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar: Fine Dining in Santa Fe

We’re proud to offer guests and visiting diners alike to the table at Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar, where the unmatched hospitality of La Posada de Santa Fe Resort & Spa manifests in gastronomic form. Executive Chef Tom Kerpon—claiming a prestigious culinary resume and a board member (and past president) of the Santa Fe Wine & Chile Fiesta—and his team strive to do justice in both the flavor and atmospheric departments to the restaurant’s namesake.

Julia Staab—whose home, shared with husband Abraham, our resort encompasses—was a devoted and impeccable hostess and a fixture of Santa Fe high society in the late 19th century. It’s her inspiration and spirit that help guide the vision at the establishment.

Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar is open every day from 7 AM to 9:30 PM, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks. Start things off on the perfect note with Bagel & Lox, Oats & Berries, Huevos Rancheros, a Classic or a Southwestern Eggs Benedict, Steak & Eggs, or another prime fulfillment of that most important meal of all.

On the lunch side of things, you’ve got such irresistibles as our Street Tacos, Cubano Sandwich, Green Chile Pork Stew, Southwestern Salad, Grilled Cheese & Yesterday’s Soup, and either the Staab or the Julia Burger (you can’t go wrong with either).

Dinner, meanwhile, may include such dishes as our Chimayo Red Chile Pork Posole, Cucumber Wrapped Organic Greens, New Mexico Buffalo Osso Bucco with Red Wine Sauce, Sweet Potato Polenta, or Blue Corn Dusted Idaho Ruby Trout: sheer plated-up masterpieces!

We recommend reservations at Julia, A Spirited Restaurant & Bar, particularly for the evening dinner hours. Call us at (505) 986-0000 or make your reservation online.
