Grand opening of the Legal Tender 8_12_23

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here back in 1986. Since then, the Legal Tender Restaurant and Saloon has had a variety of owners. Now, Allen Affeldt and Murphy O’Brien have re-opened it and my buddy Mike Gintert is running the kitchen and serving great food! It was originally built in 1881 as a mercantile store across from the new Atchison, Topeka & Santa Re Railroad station built a year earlier. Amtrak’s Southwest Chief stops in Lamy on its scenic trip between Chicago and Los Angeles.
