At the crossroads where modern sophistication meets rustic Southwestern charm, stands Luminaria Restaurant and Patio, a modern Santa Fe restaurant influenced by the past. Inspired by New Mexico's first inhabitants, The Anasazi ‘Children of the Light,' Luminaria's design, décor, and cuisine illuminates Santa Fe, New Mexico's fine dining experience at The Inn and Spa at Loretto.
A feast for the eyes, Luminaria's decor is inspired by ancestral Anasazi history. The Anasazi's use of mineral-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.
Outdoor dining at this Santa Fe restaurant is a special experience not to be missed during the warmer months. Its rustic wood patio adjacent to the hotel's lush garden and the world-renowned Loretto Chapel is the perfect setting during any meal. At twilight, dining al fresco under the stars transforms the high desert atmosphere into a romantic veranda draped and tented with flowering vines and luxurious flowing fabrics, lit by hanging lanterns.
Luminaria Restaurant and Patio, headed by award-winning Executive Chef Marc Quiñones, is a microcosm of Santa Fe itself, always managing to impart casual sophistication and simple elegance, with near perfection and timeless authenticity. We invite you to experience Santa Fe cuisine at its finest.
