Rich colors and rustic materials create a quaint industrial atmosphere (much like the Castilian casas of yore). The Cellar offers lunch or dinner, but dinner offers a fuller menu. Dinner features tapas—hot or cold—entrées, soups, salads and sandwiches. The standouts belonged to the tapas menu, and with many to choose from, it might be wise to craft a meal just using the small plates. The espárragos (asparagus) were plump and green, roasted and spiced with a deft hand. The accompanying goat cheese and roasted red pepper added welcome richness. (Alibi Staff, January 14, 2016)

Albuquerque - Downtown

Dim sum and sushi under the same roof? It's like a dream come true. The beautiful interior of the antique filling station just east of the federal courthouse is a marked change from the cozy home interior of where AmerAsia used to reside near the University. Hyangami Yi's food is just as good as ever. Expect her familiar dim sum plates and buns, and feel free to order sushi like you've never had in this town from her brother Woo Youn. He's got all the usual sashimi and nigiri in his adjoining restaurant, but it's the original, creative rolls that really set Sumo apart—that, and the adorable little train that ferries your pickled ginger around the sushi bar.

This is the spot for satisfying pre- or post-movie cravings, with a menu that stretches across the Asian continent. Think pho and pad Thai with a side of Japanese cold sesame noodles. The warming Thai soup is restorative on chilly days. Inside, it’s clean, classy and calm, and open until 11pm on the weekends. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Barelas Coffee House

1502 Fourth Street SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 843-7577
Mon-Fri 7:30am-3pm Sat 7:30am-2:30pm Closed Sun (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunch
Cuisine: New Mexican

4.57 rating (47 votes)
This homey New Mexican joint is popular, and though it’s much bigger inside than you can tell from the street, regulars pack the place tighter than a tamale. Barelas is known for huevos rancheros, and they are tasty here, slathered in particularly good red chile and served with a fresh flour tortilla. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cecilia is the matriarch of one of Albuquerque’s best breakfast burritos and red chile. Clinging close to the heart of Downtown on Sixth Street and Silver, Cecilia makes the food herself in the kitchen. The red chile is no joke and the prices are pretty friggin’ cheap, too.

This spot has some 20 sandwich choices including a fruit and cheese, a gyro and a French dip awaiting the hungry diner. The Sicilian sandwich, a pepperoni, capicolla and mozzarella concoction on French bread is excellent. Try a slice of house-baked lemon cake with cream cheese frosting, moist and springy, with just enough lemon to offset the rich cream cheese frosting.

Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining

4.07 rating (111 votes)
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of the most established fine dining in Albuquerque isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café, and it brings a tantalizingly direct message to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, and all of it damn good. Sharp, concise and to the point, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or bottle. Farina’s wine list is straightforward and focused. The bar is comfortable and every wine is perfectly matched to the kitchen’s chic pizzeria offerings. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This hidden, Downtown gem serves up simple, delicious pizza. Additionally, they have a few salads and desserts avaliable for consumption. They cater and are able to drag around a wood burning stove with them wherever they go so you never have to worry about lost quality if you see them around town. They also offer delievery for those who are within a 1.5 mile radius of their location! (Alibi Staff, June 25, 2014)

This ray of sunshine in EDo 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 macaroons.

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)

This rooftop bar offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for those looking to relax after a long day at work (the kind where you wear suits!). The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

As the name reveals, the focus of the restaurant is on tapas—dainty plates of beautifully presented and succulent morsels. And, as you may have guessed, there’s vino aplenty. Best of all is the location, inside the historic and beatuifully renovated Hotel Andaluz. (Alibi Staff, March 19, 2014)

4.14 rating (7 votes)
Frozen Mexican style paletas made with real fruit and organic cane sugar create an experience unlike the frozen treats you find in a box at the store. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

This restaurant has already gone through one name (it used to be called BRGR,) but its mission remains the same: to provide gourmet, locally sourced hamburgers to Albuquerque’s downtown. In addition to your typical beef burger, Q also offers up some exotic meat options (yak and kangaroo are both in the special rotation), a fine selection of salads, and a huge list of local beers to wash down your meal. (Alibi Staff, May 28, 2014)

3.77 rating (99 votes)
Slate is on a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Street nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and unintimidating. Don’t miss the ahi tuna sandwich (with gluten-free bread available!). It's all very affordable for its level of quality. There’s also a fabulous wine loft with the wines 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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cuisine: American, Dessert

3.08 rating (87 votes)
Forget everything you know about typical diners. Add class, upscale furnishings and a larger price tag, and then you’ll have the Standard Diner. They have oysters, fine wines and homemade desserts, and some interesting twists on ordinary fare like meatloaf and mac and cheese. The service is doting, the view of our beloved Huning Highland is representative and if you need a restaurant to take your boss to, try kissing his rings while downing a nice glass of Port. It might make it a little easier. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

A straight-shooting sushi joint with some Korean influences. Small and boldly decked in red and black, you’ll find affordable, familiar rolls in a contemporary atmosphere. Great for a quick lunch or a half-price sushi happy-hour trip (served from 11am to 2pm and 4:30pm to 7:30pm weekdays). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

5 rating (1 vote)
The decor here is minimalist-to-nonexistant, but Zendo makes up for the bare-bones aesthetic by serving an array of near-perfect espresso drinks and by committing to support local arts and music events. Speciality beverages include a Mexican latte—white chocolate and cinammon—and, of course, the Heisenberg—made with six shots of espresso and dusted with sky blue sugar crystals. At least, we hope that’s sugar. (Alibi Staff, October 9, 2013)
