It only makes sense to order the steamed artichoke at the Artichoke Café. Slathered in lemon-caper oil and a raspberry vinaigrette, it makes a great starter before trying a more hefty order of grilled curried chicken or sliced steak. Once your lunch or dinner at the upscale Artichoke Café has concluded, you’ve got to adjourn to the sexy wine bar next door. The wine list is actually a leather-bound tome with a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom up into the upper stratospheres of frivolity, but you can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing "big city" windows, curvy wooden bar and comfortable seats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Farina Pizzeria & Wine Bar

510 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
Mon: 11am-9pm Tues-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: Noon-10pm Sun: 5-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining

4.07 rating (113 votes)
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of the most established fine dining in Albuquerque isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café, and it brings a tantalizingly direct message to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, and all of it damn good. Sharp, concise and to the point, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or bottle. Farina’s wine list is straightforward and focused. The bar is comfortable and every wine is perfectly matched to the kitchen’s chic pizzeria offerings. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Ibiza at Hotel Andaluz

125 2nd St NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
Mon-Thurs: 4pm-10pm Fri-Sat: 4pm-12am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.58 rating (12 votes)
This rooftop bar offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for those looking to relax after a long day at work (the kind where you wear suits!). The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Slate Street Café

515 Slate NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-2210
Mon: 7:30am-3pm Tue-Thurs: 7:30am-3pm, 5-9pm Fri: 7:30am-3pm, 5-10pm Sat: 9am-2pm, 5-10pm Sun: 9am-2pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

Slate is on a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Street nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and 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 with the wines 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 332-0800
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.34 rating (129 votes)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Il Vicino

11225 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 271-0882
Sun-Thurs: 11am-10pm Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

3.61 rating (42 votes)
Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among readers, but the house-brewed beers are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jinja Bar & Bistro

8900 Holly NE Ste B (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87122
(505) 856-1413
Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian

3.77 rating (38 votes)
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, orange peel beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Savoy Wine Bar & Grill

10601 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 294-9463
Lunch: Mon-Fri: 11:30am-2pm Dinner: Sun-Sat 5-10pm Happy Hour: Sun-Sat 3-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.17 rating (82 votes)
Wine flights are the best way to try different selections without going broke, and Savoy has some interesting choices. They pair perfectly with the restaurant’s stunning interiors and lovely New American dishes—stovetop clam bake, grilled peach salad and the house charcuterie plate. For dessert, there’s praline-chocolate torte, house-made blackberry-Chambord ice cream, cheese plates and, of course, a glass of La Spinetta Moscato d’Asti. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Trombino's Bistro Italiano

5415 Academy Rd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-5974
Mon-Thurs: 4pm-10pm Fri: 4pm-10:30pm Sat: 3pm-10:30pm Sun: 3pm-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Movies 8 (See Film Times)
Cuisine: Italian

3.96 rating (37 votes)
Trombino's Bistro Italiano has been an institution of family-style Italian dining in the Heights for more than 30 years. It houses an impressively fat menu that includes a full bar, espresso drinks and an ample wine list. The service is quicker than a Hollywood marriage, and the waitstaff seems particularly knowledgeable about the food and wines. Gravitate to the more rustic Italian fare—lemon-basil chicken salad, grilled homemade Italian sausage, prosciutto-wrapped asparagus and manicotti--all are amply portioned and tasty.

Albuquerque - I-25 Corridor

Canteen Brewhouse

2381 Aztec Rd NE (I-25 Corridor)
Albuquerque NM 87107-4207

Sun-Thu: noon-10pm Fri-Sat: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Cask Conditioned Ale: every Wednesday 2:00 pm - 10:00 pm

4.22 rating (66 votes)
Canteen Brewhouse picks up where the Il Vacino Vassar tap room left off. The canteen is spacious, and so is a shaded patio filled with picnic benches—a comfortable spot to enjoy the brew, regular live music and a casual menu. There’s no pizza here, but there are satisfying sandwiches. As always, the ingredients are top-notch, the microbrews are award-winning, and the homebrewed root beer float is a real treat. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

Nexus Brewery

4730 Pan American Fwy NE Suite D (I-25 Corridor)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 242-4100

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

4.08 rating (103 votes)
This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of New Orleans style gumbo and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Albuquerque - Midtown

Santa Fe Brewing Co.

3600 Cutler Ave NE (Midtown)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 881-0887
Cuisine: Brewery

No Votes Yet!
New to Albuquerque, Santa Fe Brewery Co. has made its home at Green Jeans Farmery. You can stay and have a beer or two, or take a growler or six-pack to go. With a choice of over 25 beers on tap and the option to bring food in from other establishments, it’s hard to leave this beautiful building. (Alibi Staff, February 26, 2016)

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

Scalo Northern Italian Grill

3500 Central Ave SE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 255-8781
Sun: 11am–2:30pm & 5pm–9pm Mon–Tues: 11:30am–2:30pm & 5pm–9pm Wed–Fri: 11:30am–2:30pm & 5pm–10pm Sat: 11am-2:30pm & 5pm-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.51 rating (99 votes)
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. Try their Bloody Mary bar on the weekends, or their Sunday brunch. There’s plenty of fresh-pressed espresso to sip with it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Yanni's and Lemoni Bar and Grill

3109 Central Ave NE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 268-9250
Tues-Thurs: 11am-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-10:30pm Sun-Mon: 11:30am-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.82 rating (102 votes)
You love Yanni's. So do we. 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. Their Green Chile Bloody Mary will certainly boost your brunch. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro

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

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

4.21 rating (78 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, music and daily specials including the $9 beer, brat and pretzel every Thursday. 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 Taos Mule from the bar. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Old Town

Seasons Rotisserie & Grill

2031 Mountain Rd NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 766-5100

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.48 rating (52 votes)
Seasons’ rooftop patio is one of our favorite wine-drinking destinations, especially when it’s nice out. There are heaters up there for chilly nights, the courtyard fountain provides a calming gurgle, the view of the mountains is great, and the happy hour menu has outstanding dishes at more-than-reasonable prices. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

St. Clair Winery & Bistro

901 Rio Grande NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(505) 243-9916…
Sun-Thurs: 11am-10pm Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

3.31 rating (45 votes)
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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - University

Quarters BBQ

801 Yale Blvd SE (University)
Albuquerque NM 87106
(505) 843-6949
Mon-Fri: 11am-9pm Sat: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.91 rating (28 votes)
You’ll probably have to battle full parking lots and at least a moderate wait, but these delays, annoying as they may be, are one of the best “reviews” a restaurant could hope for. Inside, the dim lighting and rustic décor easily fade away when an enormous pile of tender, saucy meat appears before you. The almost heat-free sauce is tangy and sweet but mellow enough to go down nice and easy without a pucker. Friends of the sausage will love the hot links; well-spiced and smoky dogs with a delightful snap. Not to mention the huge bar takes care of all your beer and cocktail needs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Uptown

Marcello’s Chophouse

2201 Q St NE (in ABQ Uptown Shopping Center) (Uptown)

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.08 rating (37 votes)
Get ready to drop some serious dough on this place. This joint is cool, smooth and classy, the foie gras and Kobe beef are tender and delicious, and even the mac and cheese is fancy-schmantzy with a sprinkling of shaved black truffles. Have an excellent glass of wine and an order of oysters Marcello. Open late—10pm weekdays, 11pm Fridays and Saturdays—of course. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
