The Pink Adobe Celebrates 80 Years of Service in Santa Fe

Reaching your 80th is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you’re a restaurant. Santa Fe’s much beloved The Pink Adobe is celebrating its 80th in style with a special menu during July. For $80, you’ll enjoy a curated selection of starters, followed by either a Fire Roasted Chile Relleno or Steak Dunigan, topped off with dessert. To keep you hydrated, there is a selection of wine, speciality beer, or the Pink Adobe house Silver Coin Margarita.

At the Dragon Room – a hidden Santa Fe gem – there is a $19.44 social hour trio (a nod to the year the doors first opened) with a choice of wine, beer or the Rosalita Margarita – a love letter in a glass to Rosalea Murphy, The Pink Adobe’s founder.

And while you’re sipping, soak in the history that is The Pink Adobe. It stands at the heart of Santa Fe’s historic Barrio De Analco neighborhood. Both The Pink Adobe and Dragon Room Bar were founded by Murphy who was fiercely independent as well as a vibrant, warm and welcoming host.

She was a painter, art dealer, as well as a chef know for her Southwest meets Cajun cooking that captivated the great and the good, including artists like Mark Rothko, Georgia O’Keeffe and John Sloan.

It’s the first celebration from the new owners, Ira and Sylvia Seret who own the covetable Inn of the Five Graces, a stone’s throw from The Pink Adobe.
