AOL Travel Editor’s Review

If you’re looking to try some New Mexican chile creations, The Shed is the place. It is always busy but still feels intimate, with several dining rooms tucked into a 1692 adobe hacienda a few steps away from the Plaza. The house chile is grown in Hatch, New Mexico exclusively for the restaurant. Try it in carne adovada (hot!) or red chile enchilada with a fried egg on top. Green chile stew is a favorite, and their flavorful soups. Order mocha cake for dessert—you won’t be sorry. In summer, there’s competition for tables on the brick patio, especially at lunch when they don’t take reservations—a wait is likely. Sister restaurant La Choza is equally popular but less touristy, due to its off-the-beaten-track location near the Railyard (905 Alarid Street).

  Colorful and a reallly geat place for lunch on the Plaza. Expect to walk there. Parking is nonexistent but the food and atmosphere keep the crowds coming back.
