The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

You never re­ally have to dress up for din­ner in Santa Fe, but at Ar­royo Vino, you feel like you should. There’s noth­ing par­tic­u­larly stuffy about this small res­tau­rant (and ad­join­ing wine shop) in Las Cam­panas. The room is ba­si­cally a box, with a wood-topped bar at the cen­ter, eclec­tic art mounted on slate-blue walls, and spe­cials scrawled on a chalk­board. Ser­vice is for­mal and pro­fes­sional with­out com­ing across as snooty. But the food com­mands re­spect. Rec­om­mended: duck con­fit larb, white as­para­gus bisque, beet gnoc­chi, heir­loom tomato salad, arancini, cedar-plank salmon, chicken duo, lob­ster tail à la plan­cha, rib­eye, “ex­plod­ing

liq­uid truf­fles,” and salted caramel ice cream.
