The Short Or­der

The 19th-cen­tury spirit of Ju­lia Schus­ter Staab is said to be alive and well in the Staab House bar at La Posada de Santa Fe, where her face has ap­peared in mir­rors and her fig­ure has been spot­ted de­scend­ing the stairs of the old man­sion built by the Jewish mer­chant Abra­ham Staab in 1882. De­spite the ho­tel’s re­lent­less brand­ing of her im­age, Ju­lia did not show her­self dur­ing a cou­ple re­cent vis­its to Staab House and Ju­lia’s So­cial Club, the new tapas bar that has been carved out of the din­ing room of the ho­tel’s restau­rant. But we did have a few very good drinks and some de­cent snacks, though not quite for the pre­cip­i­tous prices. Rec­om­mended: Ju­lia’s Man­hat­tan, jalapeño mar­garita, steamed mus­sels, Cae­sar salad.
