Mark Kiffin

The Compound Restaurant, Santa Fe; and Zacatecas Tacos + Tequila, Albuquerque, NM

One of the Southwest’s pioneering chefs, Mark Kiffin was a Santa Fe institution long before he reinvented the Compound, a historic adobe landmark. The sophisticated cuisine at the fine-dining flagship and at his newly opened taco joint reflects the JBF Award winner’s nuanced sensibility and appreciation of the area’s rich culinary heritage.
