Beekeepers Tonic at Terra at Four Seasons Resort.

Four Seasons Resort Rancho Encantado Santa Fe’s signature restaurant, Terra, is debuting a brand-new menu this spring by Chef de Cuisine Alejandro Di Bello featuring Spanish fare and sensational seafood dishes making a mark on The City Different.

Santa Fe’s culinary landscape has long been shaped by influences of Spanish, Native American, and Mexican cuisine. Terra, “earth” in Spanish, is celebrating the local culinary fold by incorporating Santa Fe staples into a globally inspired menu complete with a kaleidoscope of flavors and colors. From an array of seasonal farm-to-table ingredients and the house-made tortillas made with masa sourced from Mexico to the New Mexican bison and Spanish octopus, the city’s culinary wonderland is intricately intertwined with flavors from around the world.

“Seafood is an integral part of our DNA at Terra and spring is one of my favorite seasons to truly experiment with our menu to create distinctive dishes with multi-cultural ingredients,” said Di Bello. “It’s a delicate dance between crafting the comfort food our international guests crave and showcasing the Santa Fe flavors that capture the essence of the city for both locals and visitors.”

There aren’t very many restaurants in business today that were here in Santa Fe when I pulled into town in 1980.
