Contemporary American
The Compound Restaurant is a cornerstone of the culinary landscape in Santa Fe renowned for its distinctive style and elegance, celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2016. Owned and operated by Chef Mark Kiffin, winner of the James Beard award for Best Chef of the Southwest 2005, celebrated his 20th anniversary of ownership in 2020. Chef Kiffin’s seasonally Contemporary American menu focuses on Mediterranean influences highlighting available regional ingredients and local sourcing making the restaurant truly farm to table. Such seasonal menus offer hearty braised dishes like Osso Buco with pear in the fall and winter while in spring and summer feature fresh local vegetables such as ripe heirloom tomatoes and peaches along with naturally raised organic lamb and duck. The New York Times, Gourmet magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and Wine Spectator have all selected the Compound as Santa Fe's favorite. Equally impressive are the wine program, cozy bar, and attentive staff.

    Another memorable evening at The Compound. The tuna tartar and mushroom polenta were outstanding as usual. Great recommendation from the wine list on top of the usual excellent service made for fun time.

    Mushroom Veloute, Warm Pear and Bacon Tart, and Duck a la Plancha were all firt rate. Scallop chowder dish (made with shrimp due to no scallops) was dull and tiring to eat. Service (including sommelier Kristina) is an example that other restaurants should endeavor to match. Delightful setting.
