Modeled after a New York loft, Slate Street’s wine bar has an ultra-hip, modern, minimalist feel. This wine list is rhythmic, flowing and poetic, and it’s the most pleasurable to read and easiest to comprehend in Albuquerque. The wines are listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. The listings are simple, but not simplistic. (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)

The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late

3.52 rating (70 votes)
Deep-frying may well be a Scottish national pastime, pursued with the same extremist zeal as soccer hooliganism and pub patronage. Sink your teeth into one of the breaded and fried items Two Fools Tavern offers and you'll understand why. This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include perfect fish and chips, buckets of beer, scads of Scotches and Saturday and Sunday brunch with, of course, live Celtic music. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Yanni's Mediterranean Grill

3.82 rating (100 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 Wine Bar & Bistro

3009 Central Ave NE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 254-ZINC (9462)

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

4.21 rating (74 votes)
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 the brunch a try, and while you’re at it, try a Stubborn as a Taos Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.04 rating (97 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)

Backstreet Grill

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

If you’re tired of the one-note mediocre New Mexican food that Old Town has become infamous for, look no further than this patio dining restaurant, pleasantly located beneath a spreading elm tree on the east side of Old Town. Fantastic hamburgers, Mexican pizzas and street tacos all await your jaded palate, and there’s plenty of local beer on tap to wash them down with. Finally, a new reason for locals to hit the plaza. (Alibi Staff, June 25, 2014)

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)

Corrales - Corrales

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

3.11 rating (63 votes)
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.

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

4.14 rating (46 votes)
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)

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)

Happy Hour!: 4:00pm - 7:00pm

3.87 rating (39 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)
