    I guess after living here for 12 years I'm not considered a local. I can afford to eat there as I do with many of the restaurants around Santa Fe. It is a wonderful restaurant town.

    I agree with Pierce, too. It is one thing to not have green chile on the menu but it is another thing to boast about that fact. That could lead to a lot of people turning away from the joint, especially given that it is hoping to attract the museum crowd for part of its day. That crowd would likely be out-of-towners expecting traditional New Mexican flavors.

    I was born and raised in New Mexico, and I've lived in Santa Fe for nearly two decades, and I can afford to eat there. Really, those prices are pretty reasonable for finer dining. A quick search of opentable.com turned up twelve restaurants in Santa Fe in that price range, and both the Compound and Geronimo are considerably more expensive. Not everything has to be Blake's.

    As a New Mexican, I'm more concerned about the lack of green chile than the prices.
