When it comes to dining destinations, it is hard to top New Mexico, and there’s no better time to experience the state’s rich culinary diversity than during New Mexico’s annual Restaurant Week celebrations. In 2015, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos will play host to their own separate, Sunday-to-Sunday epicurean extravaganzas. Participating restaurants are offering multiple-course dinners starting at just $25 for two for casual dining and $20, $30 or $40 per person at fine-dining restaurants, and several will feature prix-fixe lunches as well. 

The fun starts on February 22 in Santa Fe, and moves to Albuquerque beginning March 15 and Taos on March 22, giving visitors and locals a full 24 days to discover new restaurants and revisit old favorites. Many hotels are offering special Restaurant Week rates, making this the perfect time to plan a budget-friendly “gourmet getaway.”
