Yeah La Choza is still open. Maria's on Cordova is the alternative and Santa Fesinos will fight over which is better. Personally, I like Guadalajara Grill down Cerrillos, but all those are a bit more than easy walking distance. If you are seeking expensive but really fine food near the Plaza, the two best restaurants are surprisingly in hotels: The Old House in the Eldorado has always had the very best food, they still have great food. But their chef went to work for Inn of the Anasazi and it will no doubt now be the best food and a very lovely atmosphere. For more casual, but full of old New Mexico ambiance, go to the atrium restaurant at La Fonda. This hotel has been around since the cowboy days and still has a lot of the feel of old New Mexico. That means it's not for everyone; some people may think it's funky, but it is real. For Italian food, there's Osteria and Il Piatto; both are very good, but not drop dead great. The stand-by tourist place is Coyote Cafe, but I think it's over rated and over priced. Better is Santa Cafe, also famous, great for outdoor dining and the calamari are terrific. For breakfast or lunch is Pasquale's. Also good for lunch is the cafe at Georgia O'Keeffe museum. Cheap lunch and good food if you like that sort of thing is the India Palace buffet. Good bar, beer and burgers and people watching is a bit of a walk to Cowgirl Hall of Fame. La Casa Sena is in easy walking from the Plaza for New Mexican food, although La Choza or Maria's are both better food. Enjoy!
