The Short Or­der A road­side fix­ture north of Tesuque for more than 20 years, Gabriel’s doesn’t have a lot to rec­om­mend it th­ese days. The prom­ise is au­then­tic South­west­ern cui­sine, made us­ing the best in­gre­di­ents. But the food on your plate says that the restau­rant is more about af­ford­abil­ity and por­tion size than fresh­ness and prepa­ra­tion. The set­ting is nice, es­pe­cially the roomy pa­tio, which is a great place to try a drink and an ap­pe­tizer on a sunny day. But if you’re se­ri­ous about North­ern New Mex­ico cook­ing, you’re in for a let­down. Rec­om­mended: Gua­camole Es­pe­cial, En­chi­ladas Ver­duras, La Rosarita cock­tail, La Granada cock­tail.
