“Locals-friendly, kids-friendly, just-plain-friendly. Bring an appetite. Beautiful, wood-fired clay oven pumps out flatbreads and braises in a world of styles made with New Mexico’s best meats, grains, vegetables and fruit. Fresh, local, organic, delicious. Great patio; killer view. All-craft, all-draught beer and about 100 wines. Never reservations; show up when you’re ready. We’re here for you.”
Common Fire celebrates Taos and the people who live here. We have a handsome space, a beautiful wood-fired hearth, a thoughtful and ever-changing menu and a whole bunch of good wine.
There’s plenty to draw you to Common Fire, a new restaurant on the road to the Taos Ski Valley: nigh-perfect flat breads, robust classic American dishes, complex Asian-influenced plates and bowls, a neighborly staff, an inviting open dining room, and (for now, at least) a brick-paved patio with an enchanting view.
Common Fire in the Press
“I was inspired by the idea of people gathering around a fire,” Lynch said. “For most of our history, humans have cooked and baked together. If you go camping, everybody sits around the fire. So my idea was to build this hearth as a common fire for the Taos community: a place for all of us to come around.” Read the full article here from Taos News
“Restaurants mean something to me. I wanted to create one where I could host this community, and friends can gather, move tables together, call across the room. Contrarily,” Andy adds, “one gentleman told me, ‘Thank you for a place where I’m comfortable eating by myself.’ We’re open straight through from noon to 9 p.m. If you’re just off a hike and its 3:15, come to Common Fire,” he says. “We foster that.” Read the full article here from Local Flavor

Excellent food, awesome setting, great service! Everything is prepared is a large wood burning over that is on display in the corner of the restaurant. The menu is diverse and interesting. The pork and noodle soup was good as were the flatbreads and roasted garlic. Andy, the owner, was beyond friendly and accommodating and the staff was attentive and hospitable. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be back!
