The resort is also home to Terra, its signature restaurant serving elegant cuisine and backdropped by iconic mountain views in a sumptuous setting. As the oldest European community west of the Mississippi and settled as a province of New Spain, Santa Fe’s culinary landscape is a concoction of Spanish, Native American and Mexican influences and flavors – all reflected in the delectable menus by Terra where global influences meet regional delights.
