Denver and Boulder are chock-full of great Mexican food; whether you're a fan of Den-Mex, Tex-Mex or plain old Mex-Mex, there are plenty of places to get your taco-and-smothered-burritos fix. But New Mex? There aren't many places in town specializing in the fusion of Native American, Spanish and Mexican cuisine that's found in New Mexico. That's why chef/owner Hosea Rosenberg's Santo made such a splash when it landed in November 2017. Southwestern classics like Navajo fry bread, pork-and-potato green chile stew and blue-corn rellenos and enchiladas pack the menu. Of particular note is the restaurant's vegetarian green chile; rather than rely on pork in the dish, Rosenberg builds layers of flavor by oven-roasting all of his vegetables before they go in the pot, including the Hatch green chiles — which the chef brings up from New Mexico every fall.
