Our third night in Santa Fe we ate at The Shed. It bills itself as offering innovative cooking and is right downtown. You need a reservation as they are very busy. They have a lovely courtyard with umbrella shaded tables which would have been lovely had it not been raining. The restaurant is decorated with brightly colored artwork. To start they offered us chips and guacamole and salsa – it’s $7.25. The guacamole is passable and the salsa spicy and vinegary but otherwise tasteless – not worth the price, in our opinion. Ian had the chicken enchilada plate with green chile sauce. Despite their warning that it was spicy he found it tasteless. I had the Green Chile Burrito. It had pinto beans, white cheddar cheese and onions rolled in a flour tortilla and covered with green chile sauce. It came with Spanish rice. I ordered the chile sauce on the side and our waiter suggested I try them both, so I got to try both t

he red and green sauces. The red chile is definitely spicier. The green is pretty mild. The burrito itself was really tasteless. Overall we really didn’t enjoy the food and don’t see where the innovative or creative part is at all. We’ve had far better Mexican food at small street stands. The service, on the other hand, was great. Our waiter was very attentive and we were served promptly despite the fact that the restaurant was quite crowded.
