Two museums offer more than eye candy
By Mina Yamashita
The next time you’re scheduling lunch or an event for a few hundred, you might consider Old Town. The area usually escapes my attention because I first think: museums, parking, entry fees and finding the place—complicated, right? Wrong.
Slate at the Museum (at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History) and Tango Café (at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science) have joined the ranks of restaurants I gladly visit. Parking is free, the cafés are located right inside their respective museum’s doors and their menus compete with any in town. With the growth of restaurants in Albuquerque, the distinction between Old Town and Downtown is beginning to blur. Mountain Road is fast filling the gap.
