Tía Betty Blue’s

What’s red and green and blue all over?

By Ari LeVaux

The appeal of Tía Betty Blue’s might seem skin-deep at first. The paint is fresh. The food comes fast enough to service a drive-thru window. A collection of bottled soda pops is so vast, it could be a gimmick. And the image of a raven-haired hottie—Tía Betty Blue, presumably—stares you down from the sign, the walls, the menu. But despite its candy-coated veneer, Tía B’s means business. The food is simple but thoughtful, and it’s different. And as long as food is the priority, who cares how cute the servers are?

Done working yet? Il Vicino Brewery Canteen beckons.

The logical answer to “Would you like something to drink?”

The logical answer to “Would you like something to drink?”

As restaurant critic Ari LeVaux explains in this week’s Food section, IVB Canteen isn’t situated in some cutesy walkable community. “The only reason you’d be in the neighborhood is if you were lost or perhaps having some custom plastics manufactured nearby.” But a glass of Slow Down Brown and a brie-filled Frenchy sandwich are enticing reasons to slip out of work a few minutes early and onto Il Vicino Brewery Canteen’s lively patio.

Who you callin’ turkey?

Green chile. Turkey. Cheese. Bread. That’s it. The classic “Albuquerque turkey” sandwich is about as simple as it gets, which means the quality of the ingredients that go into it—and the perhaps atmosphere around it—are paramount. In this week’s food section, professional gobbler Ari LeVaux makes a case that JohnDhi’s nails both ends of the ABQT equation.

Stalking the Albuquerque Turkey

By Ari LeVaux

JohnDhi’s BBQ

The “Albuquerque turkey” sandwich is the lesser-celebrated cousin of the green chile cheeseburger. This simple combination of flavors is found in most any Burque sandwich shop—including Subway franchises—and even in pie-form at some pizzerias. As with the green chile cheeseburger, it’s possible to try too hard. But all that really matters are the bare essentials: green chile, turkey, cheese and bread, in roughly that order. JohnDhi’s BBQ, on Rio Grande and Griegos, makes one of the tastiest versions in town.

Café Lush

Eclectic breakfast and lunch on a quiet Downtown corner

By Ari LeVaux

Café Lush is like a daydream of the way things might be in some future hybrid of Europe and Albuquerque. It’s an urban café on a quiet street corner, with a small menu of simple yet well-crafted dishes and a pledge to use local, seasonal and organic ingredients whenever possible. But unlike in Europe, the red and green chile won’t disappoint—unless you’re a member of the New Mexico anticumin coalition.
