A New Chapter in the Staab Story

Welcome to Julia: Santa Fe’s best new restaurant and an homage to one of its oldest tales. Enjoy a flurry of Southwestern flavors with an enticing, exciting, and unexpected collection of courses. Julia is defined by its focus on locally sourced ingredients and polished takes on signature dishes.

Styled in the Staab Tradition

The restaurant’s namesake and muse is Julia Staab, an elegant Santa Fe socialite and matriarch of the prominent Staab family. In 1882, Mrs. Staab and her family, including her husband Abraham Staab, built a three-story brick mansion – in the French Second Empire-style – just two blocks east of the Santa Fe Plaza. The couple and their children entertained Santa Fe’s well-heeled social circles in the grand residence, enjoying a life of opulence and local prestige. The grand residence was decorated with ornate European materials, creating an environment so enticing that the ghost of Mrs. Staab is said to have taken up permanent residence. The dining room at the new Santa Fe restaurant retains touches of the 19th century flair for which the original Staab mansion was renowned. Menus pay tribute to the restaurant’s original resident with refined flavors and perfectly plated presentations, channeling Mrs. Staab’s inspired sense of occasion and style.

The Julia Culinary Team was recently featured at the James Beard House in New York.
