 Casual & Fine Dining 

Our brilliant chefs prepare signature classics and Southwest fusion dishes of their own creation in the Guilded Age Dining Room for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

For more casual vittles, the Plaza Bar is everything that you would expect in a true local establishment, live local entertainment, great cocktails and yummy bar grub.

Additionally we offer catering services for weddings, private parties and special events.

Gilded Age Dining Room

The Gilded Age, Plaza Hotel 1882’s late Victorian era dining room, is located just off the lobby. Its nine foot tall windows offer wonderful views of historic Old Town and Plaza Park. The dining room’s bright yellow Venetian plaster walls are covered with exceptional New Mexico Santos carvings and beautiful Navajo weavings.

The Gilded Age features a locavore menu focused on traditional Spanish and Victorian cuisine. Guests can start the day with the famous Fred Harvey Huevos Rancheros breakfast, created with blue corn tortillas, shredded homegrown beef, topped with two eggs, and locally grown chile. Those craving something sweet can indulge in Byron’s blue corn cakes and eggs, served with whipped butter and delicious maple syrup. Popular for lunch is the Las Vegas Club, which was named after a “gentlemen’s only club” in Saratoga Springs, New York. For dinner, mouthwatering entrees include Spanish vegetable pasta, served with locally grown veggies and the state vegetable, the green chile; and Charles Ilfeld’s dry-aged ribeye, named after the owner of the Great Emporium, now part of the Plaza Hotel.

Plaza Bar

Over at the Plaza Saloon visitors can unwind at the full service bar with patio seating. The saloon features a 25 foot long sold granite bar and has elevated views of Plaza Park through an entire wall of tall Victorian era windows. Watch your favorite sporting event on one of our 4 large screen televisions, or listen to live music on a Friday night. Sip on a glass of sangria garnished with fresh fruit, or try a New Mexico crafted beer. Compliment a ribeye steak dinner with a glass of Ruidoso Red and enjoy a fine selection of top shelf beverages.

Reservations are recommended and dress is casual.
