The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - Restaurant Review -

From a ’70s-throw­back Econo­line van parked off Old Las Ve­gas High­way, Cal­lie’s Gal­ley, run by Louisiana na­tive Cal­lie Ford, dishes up a hearty mix of au­then­tic Cre­ole and Ca­jun food — an ar­ray of étouf­fées, bisques, and gum­bos

with com­plex spices that work a slow, mag­i­cal burn. Ford’s week­day space on Old Las Ve­gas High­way is a Santa Fe standby, but here’s hop­ing that her new week­end digs at the Flea Mar­ket at the Downs of Santa Fe will net her a wider au­di­ence.

Rec­om­mended: oys­ter po’ boy, craw­fish étouf­fée, chicken-and-sausage gumbo, and crab-and-craw­fish bisque.

Rat­ings range from 0 to 4 chiles. This re­flects the re­viewer’s ex­pe­ri­ence with re­gard to food and drink, at­mos­phere, ser­vice, and value.
