Dining Suggestions

Call to confirm hours open and make dinner reservations if restaurant takes them.
Please be patient with your servers – as is true in many places, help is hard to come by and you’ll be in Taos during the busy summer season.

We will update this list just before the conference to give up-to-the minute opening hours, which do change often. Breakfast suggestions will also be coming soon!
