Seal of the Town of Taos

On behalf of the owners and 25 plus employees of Lambert's of Taos, thank you town of Taos for everything you've done to help us get through this pandemic. COVID-related restrictions forced us to close for months at a time and operate at half or 25 percent of our capacity when we were open. With continued fixed costs, our outlook for survival was dismal. The Small Business Continuity Grant saved us last Fall. I want to give a shoutout to Lynda Perry and Melissa Vigil, who were incredibly helpful in assisting us with the process.

From the onset of the pandemic, town management was available and responsive to our needs. It was reassuring, in a time of stress and uncertainty, to know our town government had our backs.

Our town may be unique in its support of small, locally owned businesses. It's nice and maybe unusual for a small, local business to have its voice listened to with the same interest as would be afforded large corporations. The entire community benefits when local government supports local businesses.

Lambert's employs Taoseños, pays GRT, supports local venders and contributes to local causes and organizations. We've been a part of the restaurant scene here for over 14 years, a landmark and destination for tourists from all over. Our employees are well paid and a stable workforce in the community, and thanks to the town of Taos we're confident that Lambert's will be around for a long time and those 25 plus jobs will continue.
