Opinion: Shedding more light on Taos Cow plans

Posted

Dear Taos News,

Thank you for the short piece updating the public on our progresses in Arroyo Seco and the Anglada building in Cañon ("Taos Cow to be resurrected in historic Anglada's dance hall," Aug. 29). We have had a good response from interested readers, but please allow me to clarify some of the facts so as not to mislead those readers.

First, we are not creating a sit-down Taos Cow restaurant in the Anglada building. Taos Cow plans to continue the 98-year history of event space and community gathering spot that the building has enjoyed and add our flavor to it. We will be opening a small café/scoop shop (Taos Cow at Anglada's) offering bagels and burritos from a service window on the courtyard. There will be some outside seating on the planned portal but the inside space will be primarily event space for community and music happenings. This is important because we are in the process of obtaining zoning clearance from Taos County Planning Department and we are actually not permitted for daily indoor table service nor do we have the room to do so.

Second, since our restaurant closed, we have stayed in Arroyo Seco scooping ice cream all summer out of our little cart in our parking lot. We are also in the permitting/construction process for a proposed food trailer in that same Seco location. This will also be a walk-up facility offering coffee, ice cream, baked goods, bagels and burritos. We will have basically the same fare in both locations. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer a full breakfast and lunch menu due to space, infrastructure and limited seating.

Thank you for the space to inform your readers of our status and we will let you know as permits are granted and construction is completed.

Best regards,

Jamie Leeson
