Food was great but over priced, and the service was painfully slow. This place needs more staff.

The salsa was runny - wouldn't even stick on the chips. My first impression of how good a Mexican restaurant is, is by the salsa. It was tasty but not very spicy. When we requested some spicier salsa, they had none. The wine portions very meager. Prices for entrees were high for the quantity of food that you got. However, that being said, the food was very tasty - just not a good value.

The cuisine of New Mexico is subtle, and it takes an expert to capture its flavor. From the first bite, Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Cafe is like a journey South. From the salsas to the beans, and from the pozole to the main entrees, she captures the spirit of the land of enchantment.

From Our Editors

Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Café is the culmination of two of chef and owner Julie Siegfried’s deepest passions: cooking and New Mexico. To this day, her mother recalls Julie standing on a step stool, trying to peer into a soup pot and giving her grandmother directions about what to put in. And on her first trip to New Mexico, she used up 10 rolls of film snapping pictures. She fell in love with the region's unique vibe—the people, the artwork, and, of course, the food.

Today, she shares both of her loves with diners at Julia Blackbird's New Mexican Café. Her kitchen is stocked with New Mexican ingredients such as blue cornmeal, goat cheese from the San Luis valley, and piñones. For her signature dish, the Tres Hermanas, she stuffs a trio of blue-corn enchiladas: one with chicken and green chile, one with beef and red chile, and one with cheese and chile caribe. To make sangria, the staff soaks seasonal fruit in rum, then splashes the mixture with wine and sparkling water. The menu also features beers, mojitos, and top-shelf margaritas, which encourage diners to linger in the warmly lit space, admiring brightly colored artwork or arguing about whether red should be added to the list of primary colors.
