The old home of Pearl's Dive has a new lease on life. Brainchild of local band The Dirty Novels, the Blackbird has been appropriately rock ’n’ rolled with excellent music, black-clad waitresses and a cool look. There are an impressive number of draft and bottled beers, and a few nice wines by the glass, which are fan-freaking-tastic on the back patio. By the way, "buvette" (boo-vet) is a loose French translation for "refreshment bar." Now you’re really in the know.

Slate is a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Streets (just north of Lomas), nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and still unintimidating. Don’t miss the ahi tuna sandwich (with gluten free bread available!). It's all very affordable for its level of quality. There’s also a fabulous wine loft--and owner Myra Ghattas is a certified sommelier. And there’s a daily selection of reliably good cupcakes—try the key lime. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This is Greek food that’s elegant, straightforward and absolutely delicious. White tile and recessed blue light create an island oasis that’s suggested rather than spelled out (no 8-foot murals here), and the service is friendly and attentive. The lentil soup is seasoned with just a whisper of aged balsamic vinegar, perfect with a toasty triangle of imported pita bread and a light Greek salad. Stop in for a snifter of ouzo and live jazz music on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.49 rating (52 votes)
The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more pleasant and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room, while the patio will have a nice, long season of pleasant weather. Now serving brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and there’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful local restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include buckets of beer, scads of Scotches and a full menu until 11 p.m. weekdays and midnight on weekends. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.9 rating (47 votes)
You love Yanni's. So do we. As the only restaurant in Albuquerque with a diverse and refined Greek-influenced Mediterranean menu, who can top them? Their adjoined Opa Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted deep red, dimly lit and accented with lots of dark wood, the lounge provides a stark contrast to the bright, light and airy dining rooms at Yanni's. It’s an ideal place for pre- or post-movie cocktails and snacks, or more substantial cuisine. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Downstairs the wine bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks and music. The happy hour menu, wines by the glass and prices are the best around. Give their brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a New Mexican Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

3.72 rating (42 votes)
Touted as New Mexico’s largest restaurant, the North Valley’s El Pinto is best known for its gorgeous, shady environment (perennially Best Patio in our restaurant polls) and award-winning jarred salsa. Try it for margaritas, brunch and a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

New Mexico's largest winery, St. Clair Vineyards has branched out into the food service sector. The casual, reasonably priced eatery is located just to the northwest of the Sheraton Old Town off Rio Grande. Regular live jazz music, two patios and a spacious front specialty wine and gift shop bring wine festival flair to thirsty Burqueños year-round, while the menu is built around the Vineyard's signature wines.

Look beyond the marketing gimmick of the poor, sweaty guy asphyxiating on the Central median, face concealed behind a sequined Mexican wrestling mask. Either chow down inside the colorful restaurant (try the fresh peanut salsa and horchata ) or have items from its extensive menu delivered directly to your door. Sundays feature a spectacular display of tableside live mariachi music. (Be forewarned: If you know a little Spanish, your interactions with the staff will go much more smoothly.) Open ’til 11 p.m.! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Fritz Allen opened the Corrales Bistro Brewery five years ago next door to his Hanselmann Pottery shop in the Corrales Artisan Center. The menu is full of inventive appetizers, salads, wraps, sandwiches and burgers. Roasted garlic and feta bread dippers are replete with crumbled feta, olive tapenade, balsamic dipping sauce and toasted pita. Hand-cut fries and an assortment of sides complete the mix, with good brews to wash it all down. Stop by for the almost-daily live music and you’ll feel right at home.

A classy kind of place in the wilds of Corrales with astounding lobster ravioli. And who could resist the call of chipotle clams and flourless chocolate torte? Head on in for dinner and a nice bottle of wine or Sunday brunch on the patio. It’s only a few miles thataway, as the crow flies. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

4.29 rating (10 votes)
At Blades, the mood is jovial and boisterous, in keeping with the neighborhood bistro feeling to which its aspires. A stainless-steel counter at one end extends the feeling of openness by offering a view into the kitchen, while across the dining area is a beautifully crafted hardwood bar. On the short, dinner-only menu, there’s an eclectic mix of appetizers (roasted beets with toasted goat cheese and balsamic glaze), European-style entrées (paella), and several salad and soup options, all beautifully presented. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.75 rating (3 votes)
Archetypal mountain log cabin steakhouse, breakfast joint and bar. (In olden times, they’d be a dry goods store too.) Solid comfort food and gringo-friendly New Mexican cuisine (i.e., not too spicy) with atmosphere to spare. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)
