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)

There’s not a whole heck of a lot to eat this far north in the city, so Far Northeast Heights dwellers are happy this clean, reliable Chinese joint set up in their neck of the woods. Serene earth tones and tasteful lighting set the mood. On the table, sesame chicken displays perfectly fried breading that’s crisp without being greasy and is generously sauced with sweet and savory soy notes. Wash those heavier fried foods down with a light, crisp Chinese beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If your grandma's like ours, she's not one for fancy meals with odd ingredients or avant-garde decor. Instead, she'll be after good ingredients and impeccable service. That's where Christy Mae's comes in. Owned by the Tricarico family, recipes cooked from scratch, in-house baking, hearty soups and beautiful chicken pot pies promise to please your granny and anyone else looking for a down-home atmosphere and good portions at reasonable prices.

3.33 rating (79 votes)
A can’t-miss New Mexican spot steeped in lived-in UNM area charm. There are amazing beans, potatoes and, of course, sopaipillas. And some really tasty green chile chicken enchiladas, all of which are complemented by a cerveza or a wine cocktail. And live guitar music. And a cool patio on which to take the evening air. If there’s Frito pie on the specials board, get it. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

So sabroso! This is one of those sweet mom ’n’ pop restaurants that is much beloved by neighbors but nearly unknown by folks in other parts of the city. Well, now you know. If you’re in the mood for real Mexican food like chicharrón burritos, shredded chicken tacos or irresistibly good desebrada, then head on over to El Sabor.

You know what’s good here? The chicken. Also, the waffles. Ex-Lobo basketball player Frank Willis’ food has proven to be a staple in the Burque foodie scene. Willis and family know their way around a kitchen and serve up some great soul food, from the titular combo platter to cheese grits and beef hotlinks. (Alibi Staff, December 26, 2013)

Rising up from the asphalt sea of the Talin Market parking lot, Gen Kai is a Japanese restaurant that offers an oasis from the heat and chaos of the International District. Sushi is on hand, naturally, and salt-brothed ramen, but the real star here are the donburi bowls. Our favorite is the oyako don, in which dashi-soaked rice is topped with a fried combination of chicken and egg with two forms of onion: bulb and green. (Alibi Staff, May 21, 2014)

Yes, Golden Pride is technically a fried chicken joint, but it also serves fantastic barbecue and the best damn portable burritos in town. Drive through and order a flock of wings, a rack of ribs and a passel of No. 9 breakfast burritos (with bacon!).

Phil Chavez is offering up his familiar burgers, chicken, dogs, steaks and condiment bar at The Grill. Crispy shoestring fries and the mesquite flavor of the grill give the Papa, Mama and Little Rascal burgers a nice lift. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Mon-Fri: 10:30am-7pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Chinese

5 rating (9 votes)
This is Chinese fast food through and through, with styrofoam plates and plastic forks, but don’t let that keep you away. The food here is actually very good, with traditional American-Chinese favorites like sweet and sour pork or General Tso’s chicken. There are even a few New Mexican twists like green chile egg rolls. Oh, and the hot mustard is pretty much nuclear. You’ve been warned. (Alibi Staff, February 7, 2014)

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 like 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)

This University area restaurant takes advantage of whatever natural law it is that makes college students and ramen noodles a perfect culinary pairing. The ramen bowls come in three basic broths: chicken, veggie and the iconic, milky tonkatsu, made from boiled pork bones. It’s delicious, bolstering stuff and offered at a great price. Also, check out the Japanese microbrews!

When you’re really hungover, nothing hits the spot like Que Huong’s Vietnamese stew with chicken and curry. You’ll lick your lips after every spoonful of the mysteriously spicy broth. Wrap the chunks of meat and vegetables in pieces of crusty French bread and thank your lucky stars you discovered Vietnamese food. Other highlights on the menu include delectable grilled beef rolls wrapped in grape leaves and spicy lemongrass chicken. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A stone’s throw away from Alameda, this bright red and yellow brick building is a haven for pollo sabroso. You can get your chicken dressed in gravy, swimming in red or green chile, or stuffed into a burrito, torta or taco (to name a few); better still, wash it down with a fresh glass of horchata. In a town of too-often lifeless refried beans, Rincon served us the best home-style frijoles we’ve had in a shamefully long time. The chicken soup is mild and thick with rice and chunks of celery, carrot and yellow bell pepper. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sahara’s menu is straightforward, listing expected meats and purées and several vegetarian dishes. Meats come either in a sandwich or combo platter, which are loaded with enough sides to appease the most voracious appetites. The falafel totally rocks the casbah, as do the chicken dishes, the velvety hummus and the beautifully composed salads. Don’t forget to get a nice, hot cup of spice-infused tea.

Brick-oven pizza may have come to us from California, but they do it pretty well here in New Mexico. The chicken Caesar pizza is genius with white cream sauce and a salad right on top of the pie. And if the pizzas don’t get you going, there’s homemade pasta, yummy minestrone and a lineup of excellent beer. Perhaps the best thing on the menu is the torta dessert—a mountain of puff pastry, baked apples and cinnamon ice cream. Dive in with a demitasse of fresh espresso. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

It’s in a location that has seen quite a few restaurants come and go over the years, but The Shop is making a real go of it. With an emphasis on high quality, locally sourced foods, the menu here covers breakfast (try the pancakes and the chilaquiles) and lunch (we suggest a cubano or chicken and waffles) with equal finesse and attention to detail.

A restaurant that focuses mostly on salads may be a hard sell for meat-happy New Mexicans, but make no mistake: Vinaigrette does salad right. From gourmet options that feature duck and arugula to more delicate fare with pomegranate seeds and shoestring yams, Vinaigrette presents a world of salads you may not have known existed. And much of their menu is locally grown at their fields in Nambe, N.M., too. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

If you live in the west University area and are bored to tears by salad bars and onion rings, this is the place for you. Vibrant salads and a variety of little pickles accompany gorgeous Middle Eastern platters brimming with spiced, all-natural meats. The Jerusalem salad’s tomato, cucumber and tahini combination is bright and flavorful; perfect with the homemade pita and hummus. Chicken lovers will rejoice in the kabobs, which are tender and delicious. Don’t forget to drool over the huge assortment of housemade nut-and-honey-drenched pastries in the front case.

Gyros, souvlaki, taramasalata, roast chicken and potatoes, leg of lamb, lentil soup—the menu at Zorba’s rings familiar and no wonder: The family behind Zorba’s is the same that opened the Olympia Café near UNM more than 35 years ago. But here, in the far Northeast Heights, you’ll notice a long, expanded list of dishes including more seafood and desserts, plus a lot of elbow room and a generous patio. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
