The kitchen at Julia Blackbird's finally has put all the pieces together. The dining room still looks like something concocted by the Santa Fe tourism board, but the menu offers very genuine fare. This is classic, homegrown New Mexican comfort food, everything from simple burritos and calabacitas to an excellent posole, grilled elote, fideo and rellenos (fried hard, not eggy).
