Santa Fe's Steakhouse
The Bull Ring has been a part of Santa Fe's culinary landscape for so long it's hard to think of a time when it wasn't there. Opened in 1971 and acquired by its present owner, Harry Georgeades, in 1980, it was originally located near the state capitol, the Round House. At that location, the relationship among New Mexico lawmakers, their supporters, and Harry was established. For more than 40 years, The Bull Ring has been the primary choice for legislators during session as well as throughout the year.
The world-famous Bull Ring is known as the only steakhouse in New Mexico that exclusively serves aged, corn-fed Midwestern beef. Offering all the most popular cuts, ranging in size from the 8-ounce petite filet to the enormous 40-ounce porterhouse for two, along with new favorites such as the bone-in filet, The Bull Ring prepares steaks to perfection on a 1,800-degree grill and serves them on a sizzling hot plate with melted butter. Not in the mood for beef? Try the juicy lamb or pork chops, the mouthwatering barbecue baby back pork ribs, or the fresh seafood.
Enjoy your classic dining experience in an elegant dining room with cozy leather booths and intimate lighting. Larger parties are accommodated in the beautifully decorated banquet room that can host up to 60 people. It is the perfect space for a wedding rehearsal, cocktail party, or any special occasion.
If you are looking for a more casual experience, the lounge is a local favorite, where you can mingle with old friends or make new ones in a Cheers-like atmosphere. In addition to steak offerings, the bar serves exceptional pub fare, including the succulent Prime Burger. Santa Fe's charming summer evenings are made especially enjoyable by the soothing water fountain and garden ambiance on The Bull Ring's patio.
