This ray of sunshine in Huning Highland serves gourmet breakfast and lunch, sells house-made English muffins, and has a mini-shop filled with goodies like honey, jams, mustards and vinegars, not to mention non-edibles like cook books, serving vessels and cards. A tiny wine list is just as chic—five reds and five whites are marked on a chalkboard, and all are constantly changing. This list is extremely well thought-out and offers a sampling of some of the most esoteric varietals and brands available in Albuquerque. There’s also a large, shaded patio, incredible house-made cupcakes and too-cute French macarons.

The menu changes weekly, but Hartford Square always features high quality, locally sourced food with both eat-in and take-out options. Salads are well stocked with fresh, seasonal ingredients, and there are always a few hot options like Canadian salmon or ratatouille pot pie. If you’re early enough, you’ll get first crack at the crossword in the house copy of the New York Times. (Alibi Staff, September 12, 2013)

Java Joe’s

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)

Get your late-night pizza fix and a pint on Downtown’s favorite patio. It makes a perfect vantage point for people-watching until 2:30 a.m. Friday and Saturday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A tiny house on the northern cusp of Downtown is home to this New Mexican eatery. Papa Frank’s specializes in authentic food for the to-go crowd, so expect styrofoam and plastic ware beneath your enchiladas. The red chile is fresh-made daily and packs a flavorful punch.

Elvis is in the house—Chef Elvis Bencomo, that is. With co-owners Monica (Elvis’ wife) and Orlando (his brother), Pasión Latin Fusion serves up dishes found throughout Latin America with Elvis’ own creative flair. Monica runs the front of the house and her gracious, lively style makes you feel right at home. To eat, there are fish tacos crusted in banana, garnished with pickled onions, avocado and sauce. The succulent carnitas tacos and George’s pescado à la Veracruzana are spectacular. The “croque señorita” is Elvis’ version of a croque-madame—a seared pork chop, fried egg and Swiss cheese served over tacu tacu (Peruvian rice and beans, similar to Cuba's moros y cristianos) with a huacatay (Peruvian mint) cream sauce.

Modeled after a New York loft, Slate Street’s wine bar has an ultra-hip, modern, minimalist feel. This wine list is rhythmic, flowing and poetic, and it’s the most pleasurable to read and easiest to comprehend in Albuquerque. The wines are listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food. The listings are simple, but not simplistic. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Meat, meat, meat. All-you-can-eat meat. And then there's the salad bar. This joint’s got more dead meat than you can shake a chunk of meat on a stick at. From the kill to the grill, Tucanos makes all your dreams come true. That is, if you dream about meaty hunks of marinated flesh sliced right at your table. This lively, busy and fun Brazilian-themed restaurant next to the Century 14 movie theater is open late. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This bright and colorful café caters primarily to Downtown office workers (Weekdays—get it?). We like that it has substantial salads and New Mexican fare to choose from that hit the spot. The selection of housemade baked goods is huge and very tempting. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Open only for breakfast and lunch, Zohra's caters to the 9-to-5 crowd with a little bit of everything a Downtown diner could possibly want: Afghani foods, American standbys, even Indian tacos. But stick with the Middle Eastern stuff, including a number of vegetarian choices that come à la carte or as a meal. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Baggin’s Gourmet Sandwiches

5900 Lomas NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87110
(505) 262-1451
Mon-Fri 10-5:30pm, Sat 10:30-4pm, closed Sundays (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

3.69 rating (76 votes)
Baggin’s prepares satisfying hot and cold hoagies at a decent price, with a chocolate chip cookie thrown in at no extra charge. The "sundown" is a staple for chronic dine-’n’-drivers; basically a turkey dinner in sandwich form, complete with stuffing and cranberry sauce. Try it on toasted whole wheat or sourdough instead of the standard roll. This old-school sandwich emporium has been at the top of our BoBR categories for Best Sandwich and Best Soup many times over the years. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Named for a love song that is considered to be the unofficial national anthem of Mexico. (Alibi Staff, April 10, 2013)

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

3.3 rating (88 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)

Pepper’s Ole Fashion BBQ

Albuquerque NM
(505) 967-6427
TUES-SAT: 11am-7pm SUN:1 pm-7pm CLOSED MONDAYS! (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.2 rating (53 votes)
Proprietor Daniel “Pepper” Morgan has an impressive résumé. More importantly, he learned to cook from his grandmother, who taught him the recipe for her barbecue sauce (tangy, smoky and practically drinkable) and passed on to him the soul of soul food. All of the barbecue at Pepper’s is spectacular. After hours of “mopping and basting” with sauce in the smoker—which burns hickory, applewood and mesquite—turkey legs, chopped brisket, chicken, rubbed ribs and sausage develop a glossy, sweet coating. Once a week, the menu is augmented by “Soul Food Saturday” specials, including oxtails and neck bones smothered in gravy and chitterlings. On the side, good luck choosing between garlicky mac ’n’ cheese, molten-hot fried okra, collard greens with smoked turkey, and sweet potato corn bread. Closed Sunday. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 332-0800
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

4.35 rating (127 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)

The County Line BBQ

9600 Tramway Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.18 rating (97 votes)
Everyone loves good, old-fashioned barbecue, and you’ll find heaps of it at the County Line. It has everything you could want: sweet corn on the cob, coleslaw, brown-sugar beans, you name it. Oh, and meat, meat, meat. The baby back ribs are especially good, as is the homemade hickory barbecue sauce. Wash it down with a pint and phenomenal city views, and you’ll be feeling right at home on the range. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Just a Bite! Bakery

7900 San Pedro NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 822-5001
Mon: 10am-6pm Tues-Sat: 9am-6pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

4.08 rating (63 votes)
This mother-daughter bakery specializes in special occasion cakes, some boxed lunches and a surprisingly large selection of mini-cupcakes filled with ethereal creams, berries and other unexpected delights. The cupcakes look less than perfect, but everything else is down pat—the flavors and textures are just how we like ’em and among the very best we’ve had. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Saffron Tiger

6550 Paseo Del Norte NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite D #1, Holly Plaza
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 797-2854
11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

3.25 rating (5 votes)
Don’t get turned off by Saffron Tiger’s cafeteria style of service. It’s a local restaurant that’s fast in the sense that you order quickly, but this is classic Indian cuisine, prepared the traditional way. There’s plenty of vegetable-based and vegetarian choices—golden lentil soup is a standout, and don’t pass on the paneer dishes. For meat eaters, the goat curry (made with local, kosher meat) is as decadent as any dish you’ll find anywhere, served in a brown gravy that’s full of disintegrated potatoes and the occasional green fleck of fresh herbs. Mmmm ... goat gravy. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Savoy Wine Bar & Grill

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.21 rating (78 votes)
Wine flights are the best way to try different selections without going broke, and Savoy has some interesting choices. They pair perfectly with the restaurant’s stunning interiors and lovely New American dishes—grouper in an almond-romesco sauce, seafood linguine, grilled peach and seared sea scallop salads, and the house charcuterie plate. For dessert, there’s praline-chocolate torte ($6), house-made blackberry-Chambord ice cream ($3.50), cheese plates and, of course, a glass of La Spinetta Moscato d’Asti ($5). Open ’til 10 p.m. weekdays, 11 p.m. weekends. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
