Join us at the Historic Inn for dinner featuring our La Merienda menu. Located on an organic farm in the Rio Grande River Valley, La Merienda is a casual fine-dining experience, featuring the purest field-to-fork menu in the Southwest. Our Rio Grande River Valley Cuisine is rooted in seasonal organic ingredients from our own farm, as well as from longstanding relationships with local farmers and herdsman.
Reservations are required, Inn guests always receive priority reservations. Other visitors are welcome based on seating availability. Dinner is served from 5pm – 9pm. Pricing is a la carte.
Consider arriving 15-20 minutes before your reservation time to enjoy an artisan cocktail in the Sala Grande living room. Our hand-crafted cocktails use some of the best Spanish sherries, Italian vermouths, artisan bitters, aperitifs and fresh-farm grown ingredients.
A full gourmet breakfast for two is included with your room rate. Our menu changes daily and always features fresh ingredients right off the farm including eggs, honey, fruits and vegetables from the fields. Though we offer delicious breakfasts for our Inn guests, we are not a full-service restaurant. For information about reservations for non-Inn guests, please contact us.
