Omira Bar & Grill closed for renovations awhile ago. Those renovations apparently included changing the entire concept of the restaurant. On June 10, the space was rechristened The Detour Kitchen (1005 S St Francis Drive, 930-5660). The menu seems to be a classic American spread; there's cod, burgers, penne. Prices hover in the $12-$25 range.
Thai Café has closed its downtown location on W San Francisco Street. Their voicemail promises a new location opening sometime in June a few doors down from Trader Joe's. You can still visit the second location of
Thai Café & Noodle Treats (3482 Zafarano Drive, 424-1818)
I reviewed Cuba Fe (1406 Third St., 204-4221) a few weeks ago. They have added a delicious Cuban eggs Benedict to their menu. It features lechon and bacon. It's pricey at $15, but is so worth it. They also now do half-Cubanos with a salad for $8.
Santa Fe is known for being an early-to-bed kinda town. Where are your favorite late-night spots?
