The Santa Fe New Mexican
Moskow has carved a name for himself in a town filled with big-name chefs. He creates his menus at 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar based on the philosophy that every dish should be fresh and seasonal. He is an expert at pairing food with wine and hosts dinners matching celebrated wines of France and other countries with his innovative fare.
Louis Moskow ... is passionate about ingredients. Even in food savvy Santa Fe, his dedication is unusual. If Moskow is excited about mussels, get them, even if you're not crazy about mussels. The first-and often the only-wild salmon in town is likely to be found here. In the fall ... you'll likely find ... pork loin stuffed with sun-dried tomato sausage and served with porcini mushroom cavatelli. And the wine selection is one of the best in a city thick with cookie-cutter lists. Ask Moskow if he's got anything special on his reserve list and you could be in for a major treat, especially if you share his love of Pinot Noir.
315 Restaurant & Wine Bar ... is one of the city's hotspots under chef Louis Moskow, who trained with such luminaries as Alfred Portale and Emeril Lagasse. The restaurant has all the hallmarks of a French bistro, including white-linen-topped tables, lace curtains, a chalkboard menu and an extensive French wine list. The food has clever twists, including dishes like squash blossom beignets teamed with goat cheese fondue and tomato coulis, and grilled veal flank with pea flan, pea tendrils and wild mushroom fricassee.
