VERDE UPDATE

Read Chris sent me some updated information about the south western restaurant Verde, coming soon to 532 State Street, the former home of Zia Café.

Hi, John,

Verde did a trial run soft opening for a few hours during the Solstice parade to try out their kitchen, train their servers, and generate some buzz. They’ll open for real in a couple of weeks. (I put a comment in the thread on your blog.) The chef, Jim Gartman, is pretty interesting and might be a good interview if you’re downtown. He’s bringing Hatch chiles in to give the New Mexico flavor to our Mexican food-saturated town. We’ve been big fans of the taste of Hatch chiles for years, and this is going to add a whole new dimension.

Best,
Chris
