I can hardly wait! Martin has prepared many of the most memorable meals I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy. He is a true master.

Best wishes to Martin and Jennifer!
For me too

I have eaten at some of the best restaurants in the country and had some very good meals. But I will always remember a dinner of sea bass at the Old House as one of the very finest. I am looking forward to the Rio's new place and to their success! Good luck!

Inside help is right! If the addition is 850 sq ft and the original bldg is only 1600 sq ft than the project needed an exception. It also needed an exception to change the position of the door and window on the primary facade. Could it be possible that the historic preservation staff gave Purvis and the Rioses a break? An exception at the time of the application would have cost $250 each. Just another example of who you know not what the law is... Hopefully the restaurant will be considerate of its next door neighbors in terms of lights and music...
a happy neighbor

Stephanie, you are a bitter and crazy woman. Just because the historic board won't approve what you did without a permit doesn't mean you should attack others. What the Rios' are doing is all with permission and approvals and as far as I can tell they have paid for every improvement they are making, can you prove that they haven't? Why don't you just take care of your own problems, like your mental health issues!

As a native Santa Fean, I've been very proud to follow Martin's rise in the culinary world. He's a local "boy" and he's worked very hard. We should be so happy that he's stayed here in Santa Fe and made a name for himself.

I know through a mutual friend that he's been through a very long process obtaining permits and preparing the property. Why don't we just let him enjoy his happiness and not worry about what might happen? I'm sure nothing could be as bad as that eyesore that sat there for years.

I have had the pleasure of working personally with Martin & Jennifer, and their two beautiful daughters. They are a wonderful family with wonderful ethics and goals in life. I cannot wait to dine at "Restaurant Martin", and once again congratulate the both of them on how amazing they continue to be! I know this restaurant will surpass everyones expectations, Martin is nothing short of amazing in the Kitchen! Anyone that knows him or Jennifer, would agree!
