At the crossroads where modern sophistication meets rustic Southwestern charm, stands Luminaria, a modern Santa Fe restaurant and patio influenced by the past. Inspired by New Mexico's first inhabitants, the Anasazi 'Children of the Light,' Luminaria's design, décor and cuisine illuminate the Santa Fe, NM fine dining experience at the Inn and Spa at Loretto.
Santa Fe's most distinctive restaurant serving "Conscious Cuisine," our culinary team leverages native culinary training and passion for Ayurveda's wholesome cooking approach to give guests a feast for the five senses. Our culinary inspiration stems from a trio of cuisines that blends southwestern training, French inclinations and contemporary American style to create bold yet simple dishes that define our team's talent and differentiate the craft. In the kitchen, we like to blend all three styles of cuisine with natural, organic and sustainable local products to create signature dishes.
A feast for the eyes, Luminaria's decor is inspired by ancestral Anasazi history. The Anasazi's use of minerals-based paint influenced the charcoal grey walls and the white washed pine floors, vigas and latillas throughout the restaurant. Tables built from reclaimed Ayacahuite barn wood and gray resin wicker chairs appointed with plush cushions provide ample seating for guests. A flickering kiva fireplace, copper top adobe bar and colorful paintings by Native American artist Mateo Romero provide further rustic elegance.
A special experience not to be missed during the warmer months is dining outdoors at this Santa Fe restaurant on a rustic wood patio adjacent to the hotel's lush garden and the world-renowned Loretto Chapel. At twilight, Santa Fe, NM fine dining al fresco under the stars transforms the high desert into a romantic veranda draped and tented with flowering vines and luxurious flowing fabrics, lit by hanging lanterns. A less formal, but equally delicious menu is available fireside in The Living Room, featuring various nightly happy hour and late night, reverse happy hour specials.
Luminaria is a microcosm of Santa Fe itself, somehow always managing to impart casual sophistication and simple elegance, with near perfection and timeless authenticity. We invite you to join us in Luminaria to experience our interpretation of Santa Fe cuisine. To book reservations at this Santa Fe restaurant, please call us at 505-984-7915.
