TERRA 198 NM 592 I 505-946-5800 I Boozy churros. Enough said, right? With chef Jose Fernandez behind the stove, Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado’s Terra specializes in Spanish cuisine with a few southwestern surprises. Take the churros. The cinnamon-dusted, spiral-shaped doughnuts come with four Latin-inspired dipping sauces: Kahlúa Mexican chocolate, mezcal white chocolate sauce, RumChata vanilla cream, and prickly pear limoncello. Pair this with a top-shelf whiskey or sherry and it’s a nightcap to remember! EVANGELO’S 200 W. San Francisco St. I Open since 1971, this institution is Santa Fe’s “everybody knows your name” bar. Wearing a patina of decades of imbibing, Evangelo’s is no fuss and all fun, with inexpensive drinks and a lively crowd. It’s also one of the only spots in town open until 2 a.m. — late enough for a post-performance visit. Also, what better way to end your progressive dinner than with a shimmy on the dance floor? Regular bands play on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; check the website for the music lineup. Hot tip: come flush with cash — no credit cards accepted.
