New Mexico Restaurant Week 2013

Comments Off on New Mexico Restaurant Week 2013

New Mexico Restaurant Week 2013 offering savings at fave restaurants in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos. Don’t be confused by the name though, as the Restaurant Week promotion actually runs over three weeks from February 24 to March 17. Who says we can’t count in New Mexico? Hmm, we may not count so well, but we eat FABULOUSLY, especially when it’s on the cheap!

The 2013 New Mexico Restaurant Week promotion offers multi-course menus for a flat rate, with several options in each course, including vegetarian choices at some restaurants.  Dinners are usually three courses, and some restaurants offer lunch menus too. Depending on the restaurant, dinners are priced at $20, $30, or $40 per person, and some restaurants will offer a super-bargain meal at $25 for two people.

It’s a great opportunity to eat out at some places you haven’t tried before, and the fixed price menus are especially good value at the more upscale places, compared to their regular à la carte menus. Reservations are heartily recommended where possible.  Participating hotels in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos are also offering special rates during Restaurant Week.

NM Restaurant Week 2013 runs in a different city each week.

Santa Fe Restaurant Week is from February 24 to March 3. Participating Santa Fe restaurants include Restaurant Martin (one of my favorites), The Compound, Geronimo, Anasazi Restaurant, Jambo Cafe, Blue Corn Cafe, the always lively Cowgirl BBQ, and both Plaza Cafe locations.

Taos Restaurant Week is from March 3 to March 10. Choices include El Meze, where Chef Fred Muller can be relied upon to serve up the sublime; Doc Martin’s Restaurant in the Taos Inn (I’m pleased to see their delish Chile Relleno is on the menu); El Monte Sagrado Resort and Spa, and The Gorge Bar & Grill, which is owned by the same folk who run Seasons/Zinc/Savoy in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Restaurant Week is from March 10 to March 17. They’re saving the best till last, huh? Some of my fave participating restaurants include Artichoke Cafe, Scalo, Lucia at Hotel Andaluz, Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro, Gold Street Caffe, Sandiago’s Mexican Grill at the Tramway and High Finance at the very t-o-p of the Tramway, and both locations of Jinja Bar & Bistro.

Other restaurants are still joining the party, so no doubt there will be more options for dining on the cheap nearer the time. Some foodie and cooking events are also planned, although right now they are only listing Santa Fe cooking events, and I wouldn’t call them bargain basement, although they look like fun experiences.

For example, How to Make Gnocchi Like an Italian Grandmother (Feb 24) and How to Make Fresh Pasta (Feb 26), both at Terra Restaurant at the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado resort, and The Art of Making Empanadas at Anasazi Restaurant (Feb 26). These Santa Fe events all cost $20. I’m sorely tempted by the Sake Seminar and Tasting at Shohko Cafe on February 26, with admission at $18 and if you stay for dinner you get $5 off a bottle or a demi of sake.

Online reservations are required for events as tickets are limited. Find out more at the New Mexico Restaurant Week website.

Nativo Lodge Hotel Second Night Free & Other Promos

July 26, 2012 by  
Filed under Lodging

Albuquerque’s Nativo Lodge deals include a second night free, a New Mexico resident discount, and a third night for a cut-price $19.12.

Locals will recognize the Nativo Lodge from the colorful patterns on the exterior, you can see it from I-25 near the San Mateo intersection. The rooms are decked out with Native American style furnishings, and I can tell you from experience that the beds are rather plush. I know because I tested a bed purely for research purposes while writing the hotels chapter for my guidebook Insiders’ Guide to Albuquerque. Oh, how I suffer for my work…   

Right now they’re offering a second night free at Nativo Lodge when you pay for one night. You can upgrade to a deluxe room with this deal for an extra $10. Book online or call for reservations using the promo code: FREE

I’m told this offer runs on dates till August 31, 2012, but I just tried a test booking on a room to stay in September and the promo code worked for that too, so maybe it’s on bookings made BY the end of August. Not sure, but if you’re interested hop over there fast and see what you can get!  

Other current Nativo Lodge hotel deals are:

  • New Mexico Residents get 20% off the best available room rate with no minimum stay, using the promo code: NMLOCAL
  • New Mexico Centennial Package with the third night stay for $19.12 (because NM’s state centennial celebrates the year 1912) when you book for three consecutive nights, plus a dining discount card the hotel restaurant and bar. Use the promo code: CENTENNIAL
  • Stay three nights or more and get a $30 dining credit at the hotel’s Spirit Winds Cafe using the promo code: STAYMORE  – although I think if you’re staying three nights you’re better off with the Centennial Package.

Nativo Lodge also offers a Pet Friendly Hotel Package (from $119) which waives the usual pet fee, and gives a doggie bag with treats and toys. You have to phone up and speak to an actual person to request that one.

For hotel deals, either book at Nativo Lodge online or call 1-888-628-4861. Promotions can’t be combined.

And if you’re going, use this printable coupon to get 50% off Nativo Lodge food, good on one food item purchase.

Nativo Lodge is located at 6000 Pan American Freeway NE, Albuquerque, near the I-25 and San Mateo intersection.

New Mexico Restaurant Week

March 1, 2012 by  
Filed under Lodging, Restaurants & Bars, Weekend & Day Trips

Comments Off on New Mexico Restaurant Week

New Mexico Restaurant Week actually runs over four weeks in March – offering savings at fave restaurants in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos. (Who says we can’t count in New Mexico? Hmm, we may not count so well, but we eat FABULOUSLY, especially when it’s on the cheap!)

The 2012 New Mexico Restaurant Week promotion offers multi-course menus for a flat rate, with several options in each course, including vegetarian choices at some restaurants.  Dinners are usually three courses, and those restaurants offering lunch vary between two or three courses.

It’s a great opportunity to eat out at some places you haven’t tried before, and the fixed price menus are especially good value at the more upscale places, compared to their regular a la carte menus. Reservations are heartily recommended where possible.

NM Restaurant Week 2012 runs in a different city each week.

Santa Fe Restaurant Week is from March 4 – 11. Participating Santa Fe restaurants include:

  • Vinaigrette ($25 dinner)
  • Vanessie of Santa Fe ($35 dinner)
  • Anasazi Restaurant ($30 dinner / $20 lunch)
  • Restaurant Martin is one of my favorites ($35 dinner / $20 lunch)
  • The Compound ($45 dinner)
  • Geronimo ($45 dinner)
  • Jambo Cafe ($19.95 dinner / $16.95 lunch)
  • The Palace Restaurant – another personal fave with excellent flavors by chef Joseph Wrede ($30 dinner)
  • Santacafe ($35 dinner includes a glass of Gruet fizz or sparkling cider plus tea or coffee)
  • Cowgirl BBQ ($19.95 dinner)

Albuquerque Restaurant Week is from March 18 – 25. Some of my fave participating restaurants include:

  • Pars Cuisine ($26 dinner including wine/tea/coffee and $13 lunch)
  • Artichoke Cafe ($35 dinner / $18 lunch)
  • Scalo ($22.50 lunch)
  • Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro ($34 dinner)
  • Jinja Bar & Bistro  both locations ($21 dinner / $13 lunch)
  • St Clair Winery & Bistro ($30 dinner including wine sample with each of three courses!)
  • Seasons Rotisserie & Grill ($30 dinner / $15 lunch)
  • Sandiago’s Mexican Grill at the Tramway, which you’ve just got to love for the sunset views… and the $20 PER COUPLE dinner menu!

I know more Albuquerque restaurants participated in Restaurant Week last year than I see in the list for 2012. Some heavy-hitters are sadly missing. But maybe they’ll come on board later. I’ll update nearer the time!

Taos Restaurant Week is from March 25 – April 1.  The knockout choice here among participating Taos restaurants so far is El Meze, where Chef Fred Muller can be relied on to serve up the sublime ($35 dinner).  I can’t see a menu price yet for The Gorge Bar & Grill, but it’s in a cool spot and it’s owned by the same folk who run Seasons/Zinc/Savoy in Albuquerque.

If you’re wondering about the missing week? That’s Las Cruces Restaurant Week from March 11 – 18, but there’s only one restaurant playing (Double Eagle) and it’s a bit out of the way for most of us anyhow.

The promo mentions New Mexico lodging deals and foodie events to coincide with these weeks, but right now most of the action is around Santa Fe and even they’re pretty vague on hotel deal details. Maybe we’ll get more on board for Albuquerque, and I’ll keep you posted of anything super-special. Meanwhile, if you’re interested, keep an eye on the details at the New Mexico Restaurant Week website.

Santa Fe Stay $129 With $30 Food Credit & Bottle Wine

February 10, 2012 by  
Filed under Lodging, Weekend & Day Trips

Comments Off on Santa Fe Stay $129 With $30 Food Credit & Bottle Wine

This Hotel St. Francis Santa Fe package for $129 is only available to purchase for a short time, for a stay for two people near Santa Fe Plaza through April 30, 2012.

The Hotel St. Francis deal is $129 for one night for two people in a in a Centennial Classic King room, plus you get a $30 food and beverage credit in the hotel, a bottle of red or white wine when you arrive, and also a CD with music by New Mexico performers. PLUS they throw in free private parking, and if you’ve tried to park in Downtown Santa Fe recently for more than 5 minutes, you’ll know that’s a gift! They reckon the total package via Living Social is worth $232 and it sounds like a nice little Santa Fe getaway to me.  

The Hotel St. Francis is a Heritage Hotel and Resort property listed on the National Register of Historic Places, just a short block from the Plaza. (And right opposite one of my fave Santa Fe restaurants, Cafe Pasqual’s.) I’ve nosed around since they gave the hotel an elegant make-over and think they’ve done a lovely job on it. I haven’t stayed there, but I’ve often enjoyed the atmosphere in the bar 😉 

Get the St. Francis Hotel $129 package via Living Social, available to purchase now, and then you can stay through April 30, 2012.  Note the blackout dates of March 25 to April 2, and check all the fine print at the bottom to make sure it’s a good deal for you. You can only use one certificate per stay, and room tax is extra, paid during your visit.  There’s also an option to upgrade to a Centennial Deluxe Room with the same package at $162.

I’m quite tempted to talk Mr Cheap into this one! Not that he’ll need much talking if I promise him lots of good Santa Fe cuisine.

Santa Fe and Taos Getaway Deals on Lodging

December 21, 2011 by  
Filed under Lodging, Weekend & Day Trips

Comments Off on Santa Fe and Taos Getaway Deals on Lodging

Santa Fe and Taos lodging deals if you fancy a break away or a ski trip, including 50% off and a third night free deal.  Some are available for a limited time only, to book ahead for 2012 stays.

Get 50% off the Bobcat Inn in the Santa Fe foothills at $191 (usually $383) for a two night stay for two people  including gourmet breakfasts, a chile and chocolate basket, and a bouquet of six roses.  I haven’t stayed at the Bobcat although I’ve heard very good things about it, and it looks like a lovely spot for a relaxing break, soaking up the views and hiking the trails, about 8 miles outside Santa Fe. The offer via Groupon is available to purchase now for a limited time, then stay from January 2 through April 30, 2102. You can buy two deals if you want to stretch your stay to four nights. Other Groupon Getaways include Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Fiji, Florida, Niagara Falls, Reno, and Lake Tahoe.

To stay in central Santa Fe, get over 50% off the Luxx Plaza Hotel for a one night stay for two at $69 (usually $159) in a standard suite on Sunday through Thursday nights. For a Friday or Saturday night stay the discount price is $89. The boutique hotel is two blocks from Santa Fe Plaza, and the offer via Living Social is available now for stays through April 30, 2012, excluding certain holiday dates. You can get the deal to stay on those holiday dates but the price goes up to $149, which is probably still a good price for those peak times, but obviously not quite such a bargain! Other discounted Living Social Escapes include Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Florida, California, New York, Fiji, and Mexico.

At the Taos Inn, in (you guessed it) Taos, they’re offering a  Taos Inn third night free deal to celebrate their 75th anniversary. So when you pay regular rates for two nights, the third consecutive night is free! The historic Taos Inn is right in the heart of Taos, and a great base to explore from, with a comfy bar, the very good Doc Martin’s restaurant,  and live music every night.  The Taos Inn lodging deal page says the offer is valid through the end of April 2012 excluding holidays, but from a recent conversation with the manager, I have the impression that if you book early enough, the offer *might* be extended for later dates in 2012. No guarantees on that, but it can’t hurt to ask if you want to stay later in the year, call the Taos Inn at 888 518 8267.

$50 for a $100 Travelocity Hotel Gift Card

October 5, 2011 by  
Filed under Lodging, Weekend & Day Trips

Pay $50 for a $100 Travelocity hotel gift card – buy before Friday October 7, 2011 (while supplies last) and use the gift card by March 31, 2012.

I’m always looking for a way to save on hotels when I’m traveling, and also when I’m putting visiting family and friends up as guests in hotels.  (Seeing as my house is pretty tiny, and Mr Cheap is pretty big, and the equation doesn’t work so well when you add in a few guests too.)

This $50 for a $100 Travelocity hotel gift card deal via Tippr seems like a good solution – basically saving $50 on a hotel booking. It’s redeemable at national and overseas hotels listed at TravelocityIncentives.com if you’re going on vacation or traveling to see family. (55,000 hotels, they reckon.)

For visitors to Albuquerque, hotels and B&Bs currently on the list include Nativo Lodge, Hotel Parq Central, Hotel Blue, Brittania W.E. Mauger Estate, Embassy Suites, Casas De Suenos in Old Town, La Quinta Inn, Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Hyatt Place, Sheraton Airport Hotel, and plenty of other chain hotels.

There are no blackout dates to use the gift card, but there is a minimum spend of $250 total required before you can apply the gift card, and a minimum of a two night stay. So this deal is suitable if you’re planning a several night stay – forget it if you’re planning a one-nighter, or a couple of nights in already cheap accommodation that won’t reach the $250 minimum.

The $50 for a $100 Travelocity hotel gift card is via Tippr, available nationally so you can buy it wherever you are. Sometimes these national deals have a cap in quantity so they may sell out before the promotion ends. Otherwise the offer is through Friday October 7, 2011. Then the gift card must be used by March 31, 2012.

You can buy up to 10 gift cards per person, and it’s good for one code per hotel reservation. We’ve given the main points of the offer here. But as always – check the fine print to make sure it’s a good deal for your needs.  And happy travels!

–Tania  FYI – I’ve given you my Tippr affiliate links to plug you direct to the offer. If you feel like sending a little love this way to support the ABQ on the Cheap site, please use the links.
