One of the more intimate restaurants in Santa Fe. With the feeling of a true French Bistro, 315 has it down pat. Small, quiet intimate rooms, with small tables covered with the ever traditional white "butcher's paper", elegant crystal wine glasses and a large wine selection make this a cozy place to celebrate with that someone special.
We happened to attend one of their many special wine dinners recently and found everything very enjoyable and the food and service excellent.
Chef Louis Moskow had the evenings event under full control. Doing a five course dinner is not always easy and the timing is very important if the food is to arrive at the table at the right temperature, beautifully presented and with a friendly smile. His recent Cakebread Wine Dinner was a perfect example of how it should be done.
The Yellowtail tuna crudo with avocado citrus mousse was outstanding with the Chardonnay.
The duck soup with wild mushroom consomme and crispy noodles, pared well with the Pinot Noir.
The grilled filet mignon in red wine-braised short rib sauce was over the top and served with a delightful caramelized onion flan that melted in your mouth accompanied by a very smooth Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
The fourth course was a very unusual Roasted Beef Marrow Bone with a tasty blackberry compote topped by an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon from Dancing Bear Vineyards.
Ending with a generous portion of raspberry sorbet for dessert.
From first to last, a first class dinner, beautifully presented and served with precision by a friendly and well trained staff.
Every restaurant has it's off nights as we all know, but this clearly was not one of those evenings.
We will be back.
