Rancho de Chimayó

Cocktails created at Rancho de Chimayó

Rancho de Chimayó Restaurante is a James Beard Foundation Award American Classic (2016) in Chimayó, New Mexico. Owned by Florence Jaramillo, she opened the restaurant with her husband Arturo. Their food has been described as a “no-frills take on New Mexican cooking, with its obvious influences from Mexican and Native American cultures.” Their “signature dish” is the carne adovada.

In 1985, the Jaramillos were named “Restaurateur of the Year” by the National Restaurant Association.

Opened in 1965, they were named one of New Mexico’s Culinary Treasures in March 2014.

When the Jaramillos opened the restaurant, they thought they would be able to capitalize on the increasing popularity of the nearby Santuario, since there were no other restaurants in the area.
