La Placita Dining Rooms is a restaurant serving New Mexico cuisine housed in an 1880 building originally known as Casa Armijo.

A misty apparition, cold spots, and names whispered into employees’ ears also have been reported.

  1. I love this restaurant and I discovered it about 6 months ago along with my friend. I had never used the restroom until my 2nd visit and although I didn’t see anything I felt VERY uneasy in the bathroom for some reason. I basically ran down the stairs that lead from the upstairs. Very scary and strange feeling I will never let myself feel again.

  2. I once went with my cousins. We had to go to the bathroom and my cousin went in a little before me. As I was walking in, my cousin yelled the F word and because I was little, it startled me and I ran. When my cousin ran out, I saw something on his arm and I said, where did you get that? He had 3 long dark red scratches on his arm. They lasts weeks.

  3. I had an experience in womens restroom. I had a dark feeling as I approached. While alone in restroom stall, my arm was grabbed aggressively. Petrified I ran out and instinctively my gut said to avoid mirror. I later learned of history here. Sent chills through body given the experience I had without knowing the history.

  4. I worked here one Summer in my early UNM years. (early 1980’s) I sometimes felt the presence of two beings- a woman and a young woman when the restaurant was full. They lingered around the top of the staircase near the women’s bathroom. Never felt anything in the bathroom, but could sure sense ‘something’ on that staircase.
