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)

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.

You’ll worry you’re lost the whole way out to the beautiful Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, home of The Corn Maiden restaurant. The resort is a stone’s throw from Bernalillo but feels much, much farther from town. The views from the restaurant are unmatched (except by neighboring Prairie Star) and the luxurious Southwest ambience is stellar. Expect the food to be beautiful, too. Open until 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Situated in an old adobe mansion with stunning views of the Sandia Mountains, Prairie Star is tailor-made for intimate special occasions. Bold New American dishes created by award-winning Executive Chef Heath VanRiper are as beautiful to behold as they are to eat and go down flawlessly with selections from the Wine Spectator- honored cellar. Be wowed by the giant scallops, rabbit relleno and to-die-for pecan pie. The new wine bar alone is worth the trip. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Santa Fe

Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

3.4 rating (5 votes)
315 is the kind of French restaurant Albuquerque doesn't have. It's got a casual atmosphere in an old converted house, but the food is knock-your-socks-off stellar. Chef Louis Moskow uses the finest ingredients (think foie gras and beluga caviar). Before you order, your server will bring over a chalkboard showing the day's specials; they're often the most exciting offerings. This is also a great place to have just a snack and a glass of wine from the incredible list. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

New Mexico’s most famous restaurant, Coyote Café is where chef Mark Miller came to fame as the king of Southwestern cuisine. This beautifully renovated restaurant serves only dinner, but the rooftop bar, Coyote Cantina (open in the summer) has a wide selection of tequilas and an affordable Latin-American menu.

This is another one of our all-time Santa Fe favorites. We go for Spanish-style tapas in one of the quiet dining rooms; Chef James Cambell Caruso (who briefly owned Stars Café in Albuquerque) does wonders with shrimp and garlic. Sometimes we stop in for a late-night drink and some entertainment in the lively bar up front. Whether it's a flamenco guitarist and dancers or a Western swing band, the bar is always fun.

Most people consider Geronimo the best restaurant in Santa Fe. Chef Eric DiStefano’s signature dish is a peppered elk tenderloin atop garlic mashed potatoes and bathed in mouth-watering brandied mushroom sauce. Generously dotted with applewood-smoked bacon and big, meaty morel mushrooms, and served with a superb glass of red wine, it is yum-um-ummy. The ambience here is a little uptight, but the food is what matters, right? If money is an object, try lunch; it's just as good and way cheaper. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Look for The Old House tucked away in the deluxe Eldorado Hotel. Here you’ll find mostly French-inspired food like sautéed diver scallops with a portobello and foie gras Wellington, wilted greens, Xeres sherry and Meyer lemon sauce. Everything, from the silverware to the service, is top-notch.

Food Network star Ming Tsai worked here for a few years in the mid-’90s, and the menu still shows a strong Asian influence in dishes like shiitake-and-cactus spring rolls with Southwestern ponzu dipping sauce. Close to the plaza, but not too pretentious, SantaCafé is an old standard. Ask to be seated on the lovely enclosed courtyard. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque

Bien Shur

30 Rainbow Road
Albuquerque NM
(505) 796-7788
Tues-Sat: 5-10pm Closed Sunday & Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

3.82 rating (17 votes)
The nickel slots are bright, noisy: Bien Shur is subdued, quiet, tasteful. The dining room is classy and beautiful but still comfortable, leaving diners to contemplate the wonderful contemporary cuisine and stunning views of the city and Sandia mountains. After your meal, you can head back downstairs into the casino scuffle for some live jazz in the Tlur P’a Lounge and a hand of video poker. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

4.5 rating (8 votes)
Downtown's Hotel Andaluz and its restaurant, Lucia, seem like they were designed to make you feel cool. The dining room is dimly lit by low-volt lamps hanging from paper ceilings and the occasional flash of fire from the open kitchen. Mediterranean fusion fine-dining begins with grilled artichokes smothered in saffron butter and capers, or heavenly grilled oysters with smoked chile-chive-oil mojo (a kind of Caribbean mayo) and pancetta on pea greens. Once you’re fully rested after a night of cocktails and herb-crusted rack of lamb, come back in the morning for fluffy, toothsome lemon-ricotta pancakes and organic breakfast burritos.

It's one of the fanciest restaurants in a city that has a lot of fancy restaurants. What makes The Compound different is a beautifully designed interior, lush gardens, a killer sommelier and really freakin' good food. Chef Mark Kiffin doesn't mess around with too much Southwestern stuff (though he did when he was at Coyote Café), favoring dishes like tuna tartare topped with osetra caviar and preserved lemon. Try this place for lunch during the week or dinner any night. And in good weather you should absolutely sit outside. (Also, The Compound has a package liquor license, so you can leave with nearly any bottle from their huge cellar.) (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
