Ardovino’s Desert Crossing
Ardovino’s Desert Crossing, El Paso’s hippest restaurant, is in New Mexico! Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Cristo Rey since 1949, Ardovino’s Desert Crossing has established a solid reputation as a restaurant/lounge and banquet facility. The Mecca Lounge, a throwback to the swanky lounges of the 50s, offers fabulous cocktails and an extensive selection of fine wines, scotch and beer. Dinner items created with garden-grown herbs include entrees ranging from beef tenderloin to seafood and great pastas. Every Saturday morning throughout the year, there is a farmers’ market with fresh local produce and breakfast on the patio. Full-service banquet facilities are available for private events (10–350 guests).
