Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinnerOpen Late

1.63 rating (8 votes)
New Mexican food in the Garduño’s vein—plus burgers and booze—in a bucolic valley setting. In fact, El Bruno’s does indeed occupy the site (and, one might assume, the demographic) of the former North Valley Garduño’s. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

Albuquerque - Downtown

Blackbird Buvette

509 Central Ave NW (Downtown)

Mon-Fri: 11am-2am Sat: noon-2am Sun: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late

3.86 rating (36 votes)
The old home of Pearl's Dive has a new lease on life. Brainchild of local band The Dirty Novels, the Blackbird has been appropriately rock ’n’ rolled with excellent music, black-clad waitresses and a cool look. There are an impressive number of draft and bottled beers, and a few nice wines by the glass, which are fan-freaking-tastic on the back patio. By the way, "buvette" (boo-vet) is a loose French translation for "refreshment bar." Now you’re really in the know.

Java Joe’s

906 Park SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 765-1514
www.downtownjavajoes.com
Mon-Sun: 6:30am-3:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch

3.7 rating (20 votes)
According to one of our readers, Java Joe’s is “the last of a dying breed.” There are indeed “few choices left to get that cool Haight-Ashbury ’60s feeling.” Don’t get the wrong idea, though, this neighborhood coffee shop isn’t overflowing with hippies. It attracts a diverse crowd of cyclists, artists, musicians, hipsters and grownups just looking for a cuppa joe (albeit one with in-house roasted beans). The food is simple and satisfying, from freshly baked scones to waffles, burritos, sandwiches and salads, and the sidewalk seating is definitely for the dogs. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Marble Brewery

111 Marble NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 243-2739
www.marblebrewery.com
Mon-Sat 1pm-12pm Sun 1pm-10:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.39 rating (17 votes)
Marble Brewery opened its doors in the spring of 2008, and since then it’s become a favorite haunt of Burque beer fans. Go in for a flight—10 little glasses of every beer on tap—and taste the meticulously brewed rainbow, each beer distinct and complex. Six-packs, bombers, growlers and kegs are good to go.

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

The Cooperage

7220 Lomas NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM

Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: noon-10pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

2.8 rating (32 votes)
The Cooperage is old-school Albuquerque, right down to the dusty light fixtures. The barrel-shaped steakhouse has been a standby for 30 years thanks to its mile-long complimentary salad and soup bar, aged steaks (at a place like this, prime rib is king), and big dance floor that’s always packed on the weekends. Winners of Best Catering in 2007’s Best of Burque Poll. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 332-0800
www.barleyroom.com/welcom.htm
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.3 rating (22 votes)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gecko’s Bar and Tapas

5801 Academy NE (Northeast Heights) (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 821-8291
www.geckosbar.com
Mon-Fri 11:30-2 am Sat-Sun noon-2 am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.36 rating (11 votes)
Gecko’s has expanded with a popular Northeast Heights location—housed in a building that looks like a jukebox, for some reason. Even though it’s clear across town, you’ll still probably bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a wicked Bloody Mary and enjoying tidbits from the affordably priced tapas menu. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Mykonos Café & Taverna

5900 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 291-1116

Tues: 11am-9pm Wed-Sat: 11am-10pm Sun: 10:30 for brunch Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner

2.29 rating (20 votes)
This is Greek food that’s elegant, straightforward and absolutely delicious. White tile and recessed blue light create an island oasis that’s suggested rather than spelled out (no 8-foot murals here), and the service is friendly and attentive. The lentil soup is seasoned with just a whisper of aged balsamic vinegar, perfect with a toasty triangle of imported pita bread and a light Greek salad. Stop in for a snifter of ouzo and live jazz music on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - I-25 Corridor

Doc & Eddy's

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

4.65 rating (14 votes)
Something that sets Doc & Eddy’s apart from other sports bars is that no cover charge is extracted on Ultimate Fighting Championship nights. What you will find are pool tables, waitresses who are not dressed like strippers (TDs is across the parking lot if that’s what you’re after—it also airs UFC) and a kitchen staff that takes its job seriously. The Lobo burger is a thing of beauty, with smoked bacon sparring nicely with cheese and green chile. The fries are skin-on, and the legit red chile is medium spiced with the occasional fleck of coriander. Maybe everyone doesn’t know your name, but it’s pleasant and friendly—even to Brock Lesnar fans. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

4.33 rating (7 votes)
This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of Southern-fried po’boys 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. And there’s live music, too. Nexus has bands booked several nights a week. Voted Best Southern Food for 2013. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

3.13 rating (15 votes)
With sometimes too-loud live music and a party-hard crowd, it’s usually best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll get a different experience. The beef here is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown, and steroid- and antibiotic-free, and the cooks at Monte Vista deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are juicy and big, the steak frites hit the spot, and the beef skewers are tender and one of the best deals on cow in town. And if you do brave the weekend crowd, you’ll be rewarded by bowls of mussels served with your choice of several sauces, including coconut curry, Mexican and classic French. Served with a grilled baguette to soak up a small sea of broth, it’s a great way to fill a belly for $10. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Scalo Northern Italian Grill

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.5 rating (51 votes)
The surprising thing about Scalo is that it’s simultaneously more fancy and less expensive than you’d think. It’s just as breezy and classy as ever in its high-ceilinged dining room. All of the bottles on the wine list are half-price on Monday nights, and there’s free, live music in the bar. Voted Best italian for 2013. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This British Isles-style pub is the brainchild of successful local restaurateur Tom White (Scalo and Il Vicino). Highlights include buckets of beer, scads of Scotches and a full menu until 11 p.m. weekdays and midnight on weekends. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Yanni's Mediterranean Grill and Opa Bar

3.9 rating (47 votes)
You love Yanni's. So do we. As the only restaurant in Albuquerque with a diverse and refined Greek-influenced Mediterranean menu, who can top them? Their adjoined Opa Bar seats about 85 people and is open for lunch, dinner or just cocktails. Painted deep red, dimly lit and accented with lots of dark wood, the lounge provides a stark contrast to the bright, light and airy dining rooms at Yanni's. It’s an ideal place for pre- or post-movie cocktails and snacks, or more substantial cuisine. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

4.33 rating (37 votes)
Best Wine Bar winners in 2008’s Best of Burque poll, Zinc is a delightfully renovated historic space in Nob Hill, reborn as an upscale restaurant serving elegant American food with noticeable French inspiration. Thirsty? Don't miss the mocha, with “Zinc” written in chocolate syrup, or the wonderful selection of wines by the glass. Downstairs, the wine bar attracts a younger crowd for drinks and music.

Two words: fry bread. Use this heaping hunk of pillowy-crisp carbs to sop up the best posole, mutton stew and huevos rancheros in the North Valley. Go check out what else they’re cooking up inside the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

One of the most beautiful patios in town. Benavidez is way the hell up there in the North Valley, but if you’re looking for a good breakfast burrito, or simply someplace to sit and have some chips, queso and a mind-erasing Bloody Mary, this place is worth your time. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Touted as New Mexico’s largest restaurant, the North Valley’s El Pinto is best known for its gorgeous, shady environment (perennially Best Patio in our restaurant polls) and award-winning jarred salsa. Try it for margaritas, brunch and a little flan. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Best of Burque 2009 (Best Lesbian Bar): Exhale has live entertainment, a smokin' dance floor, naughty drinks and jalapeño poppers. Outside of a planet with pink clouds and rivers of chocolate, populated solely by lovely lesbian ladies, what more could a girl ask for? (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)
