Torinos’ is owned by Maxime and Daniela Bouneou (a husband-and-wife team from Nice, France, and Torino, Italy, respectively), and their Northern Italian restaurant is the next best thing to a plane ticket to Occitania’s northeast corner. Everything is made from scratch and ingredients are sourced as locally as possible. The pappardelle all’Amatriciana— fresh, house-made wide linguine tossed in a light tomato sauce with pecorino, chile, olives and guanciale baconis a glorious bowl of pasta. In the guilty pleasures department, the foie gras would satisfy the itch of the most jaded addicts. Don’t pass up the spezzatino, a slowly braised beef brisket served with seared polenta cubes. There’s also half-melted mallard duck confit served with cranberry rhubarb compote. Drop in for à la carte breakfast and lunch, or book a table for dinner service—a $36, six-course set menu. Vegetarians and other food restrictions can be accommodated, Maxime says, but it’s best if they call ahead. “Then we can make something special.” (Alibi Staff, February 2, 2011)

Albuquerque - Nob Hill

Elaine’s

Albuquerque NM 87106

Tues-Sat: 5pm-10:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner

3.14 rating (65 votes)
First off, you might want to dress up a little so you don’t feel like a total boob in Elaine’s intimate, hip/luxe dining room. Secondly, make sure you’ve got a full wallet before going in—we’re talking $55 a person minimum. And finally, ready your palate for some spectacular food. We recommend the filet mignon or the Scottish salmon, but really, it’s hard to go wrong at a place like this. Be sure to check out the extensive wine list as well. (Alibi Staff, January 28, 2014)

The Last Call is one of the best late-night eateries in town. They consistently have excellent food with plenty of vegetarian options. While it’s packed after midnight, if you go when they open (5:05pm), there’s virtually no line. In other words, nothing standing between you and a taste of heaven. The Cali burrito with veggies is perfection, but we highly recommend the fish tacos and truffle grilled cheese. (Alibi Staff, October 4, 2012)

P’tit Louis’ new Nob Hill digs is a collaboration between Christopher Descarpentries, John Phinizy and Tom White of Il Vicino and Two Fools Tavern. With classy lunch, dinner and wine menus, this lovely bistro will truly transport you to France. The delicousness doesn’t stop with hors d’oeuvres and entrées; the dessert choices are absolutely to die for, so make sure to save room. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

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 and 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)

You have enough to worry about without the stress of not knowing where your next baked good is going to come from. Have a buttery fruit pastry, a slice of pie or buy a loaf of that nice, spongy white bread to take home and tear off chunks to stuff in your mouth in a secret corner of the kitchen. We won’t tell.

Oui, messieurs and mesdames, a good piece of quiche is the international language of love. Chez Axel serves Mediterranean-French cuisine, and the crepes are trés bon. Order them stuffed with salmon, tarragon sauce and cheese, or mushrooms, bacon and béchamel sauce. Have a leisurely lunch from 11am-2pm or a relaxing dinner from 5pm-9pm. And don’t forget an orange marmalade and liqueur-covered plate of crepes Suzette for dessert—you won’t be disappointed, so allez vous-en! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

La Quiche is an authentic French bakery from husband-and-wife team Sabine Pasco and Bruno Barachin. (Bruno is from Bordeaux, where he achieved Master Baker status years ago.) In addition to a large menu of sandwiches, pâtés, soups and stews (the bourguignonne is served in a house-made pastry shell), La Quiche sells loaves of country bread, fantastically complicated bread showpieces and viennoiseries—flaky, buttery pastries like brioche, croissants and pain au chocolate that traditionally came from Vienna. They use imported French butter, and it shows. The fruit tarts are the best in town. You'll also find a catering menu and a variety of quiches, ready to go for workers with little time for a proper lunch. Try their poached eggs benedict or poached eggs florentine from their brunch menu. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

If the café’s mural of French street life doesn't quite make you forget that you're in an Albuquerque strip mall, closing your eyes and tasting a flaky blueberry cheese croissant might. If the croissant doesn't work, try some petits fours. Le Chantilly was voted Best French Pastries in Albuquerque, after all. But if sweets aren’t doing it for you, maybe you need something savory: Perhaps one of the daily lunch special sandwiches and a cup of espresso will do it? (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

The baguettes at this little Northeast Heights storefront and café are phenomenal—many of the city’s best restaurants use Le Paris as their house bread. Not familiar with French food? The friendly staff will happily steer you in the direction of one of the light breakfast and lunch offerings. Don’t skip anything involving chocolate. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.09 rating (59 votes)
This creeking wooden-floored and quaint restaurant is located in Old Town and is one of the few places in the city unafraid of serving a very rare steak. The all around energy is charming and old timy, and their menu is thoughtful and satisfying. Save your money and treat yo self. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

It’s a classy kind of joint, this Antiquity; tablecloths, waiters with bow ties and fancified French food (including seafood) that will push you toward ecstasy even as it drains your pocketbook. But it’s unmistakably Albuquerque too. For one thing it’s in an ancient Old Town hacienda, the kind with an uneven floor, two-foot-thick walls at every doorway and rooms that ramble back farther than you would ever guess from the outside. For another, the blue-jeaned may mix freely with the formally attired in that wonderful New Mexican way that so annoys the Easterners among us. (Alibi Staff, October 4, 2012)

Pioneers in the Albuquerque bustaurant scene, the Boiler Monkey creates and serves savory and sweet crepes. Both the serving area and the fresh food were designed with delightful attention to detail. Enjoy a Burque turkey crepe or flavorful lox and be sure to save room for a sweet crepe like the Navidad with blueberry pie filling and creamy goat cheese for dessert. (Alibi Staff, July 18, 2013)

Navigating the labyrinthine alleyways that comprise Old Town should be rewarded duly with a fine lunch. Savor the soupe de poisson, follow it with a salade maison, then choose between a brunch, lunch or dinner menu complete with a quiche du jour. Skip the turquoise jewelry altogether and just go have the dessert crêpes aux fraises or poire belle-hélène. Regret will be a thing of the past with a dish of coupe glacée, and why regret anything in the first place? We don’t. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Santa Fe - Santa Fe

Geronimo

724 Canyon Rd. (Santa Fe)
Santa Fe NM 87501
(505) 982-1500
www.geronimorestaurant.com
Mon-Sun: 5:45-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

3.03 rating (40 votes)
Most people consider Geronimo the best restaurant in Santa Fe. Chef Eric DiStefano’s signature dish is a telicherry rubbed elk tenderloin atop garlic mashed potatoes and bathed in a 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)

315 Restaurant and Wine Bar

315 Old Santa Fe Tr. (Santa Fe)
Santa Fe NM
(505) 986-9190

Sun-Thu: 5-9pm Fri-Sat: 5-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Nearby Theater: UA DeVargas (See Film Times)

3.08 rating (25 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)
