Their hours seem to change monthly, but Adieux Café is still serving up excellent beer and cocktails in the heart of Downtown. The kitchen closed, but the eatery next door serves their food to the bar’s patrons Friday and Saturday nights. (Alibi Staff, January 7, 2014)

Artichoke Café

424 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102

It only makes sense to order the steamed artichoke at the Artichoke Café. Slathered in lemon-caper oil and a raspberry vinaigrette, it makes a great starter before trying a more hefty order of grilled curried chicken or sliced steak. Once your lunch or dinner at the upscale Artichoke Café has concluded, you’ve got to adjourn to the sexy wine bar next door. The wine list is actually a leather-bound tome with a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom up into the upper stratospheres of frivolity, but you can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing "big city" windows, curvy wooden bar and comfortable seats. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Farina Pizzeria & Wine Bar

510 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
908-9490

Meals Served: LunchDinner
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)

The Grove Café & Market

Suite A
Albuquerque NM 87102

Tues-Sat: 7am-4pm Sun: 8am-3pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunch

3.85 rating (44 votes)
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.

Ibiza at Hotel Andaluz

125 2nd St NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102

Mon-Thurs: 4pm-10pm Fri-Sat: 4pm-12am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late

3.58 rating (12 votes)
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)

Slate Street Café

515 Slate NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-2210

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner

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)

The Standard Diner

320 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-1440
standarddiner.com
Sun-Thurs: 8am-9pm Fri-Sat: 8am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
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)

Sushi King

118 Central Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102

Mon-Thurs: 11am-9:30pm Fri: 11am-11pm Sat: noon-11pm Sun: noon-9:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi, Asian

3.17 rating (35 votes)
Sushi King is a small, hip, but casual spot located a few doors up from the Century 14 Downtown movie theater. They serve fresh nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls, plus an interesting assortment of seafood salads and noodle dishes. They’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Albuquerque - Fairgrounds

Café Da Lat

5615 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 266-5559
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.07 rating (68 votes)
Consistently one of the best Vietnamese joints in town. Da Lat does a magnificent breaded frog leg appetizer. The crispy golden legs are scrumptious dipped in Da Lat's salty, tangy nuoc cham sauce. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Cielito Lindo

416 San Pedro Dr (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 266 1800

Monday-Sunday 8 am-9 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

3.86 rating (7 votes)
Cielito Lindo is named for a love song that is considered to be the unofficial national anthem of Mexico. While it may not be completely authentic Mexican seafood, it is terribly wonderful and a popular hidden gem with in-the-know locals. We recommend the medium oysters, they’re delectable.

Meals Served: Dinner

Located at the end of a long corridor in the Downs Casino, the Crown Room’s very existence is something of a surprise. Even more surprising is just how elegant the cozy dining room is. The chaos of the casino outside the door quickly fades away as you dive into cuts of steak that rival the finest in town. Sure, it’ll set you back a few bucks, but the experience is not to be missed. (Alibi Staff, July 22, 2015)

Fareast Fuzion

5901 Central Ave NE (Fairgrounds)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 255-2910

Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.07 rating (15 votes)
You may remember Bangkok Asian Fusion, which used to occupy this place. Now there’s a grand, shiny sushi bar, with a huge fish tank behind it that lays out generous portions of great sushi. A plate of sashimi, densely and artfully arranged, turns the table into a school of piranhas. Each variety of fish is carefully garnished with complementary flavors, with the squid tossed in wasabi tobiko being particularly memorable. The seafood salad has so many chunks of raw fish among the greens that you can’t stick your chopsticks in without getting any. (Alibi Staff, September 1, 2011)

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(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)

4.34 rating (129 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)

Five Star Burgers

5901 Wyoming Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-1909
www.5starburgers.com
Mon-Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.29 rating (8 votes)
The browned, freshly ground turkey burger is a total masterstroke, one that explodes in the mouth and hits a high-water mark for juiciness. It’s not all burgers, either: The full-sized salads practically come in boats here, and the beer is local. (Alibi Staff, July 12, 2011)

Il Vicino

11225 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 271-0882
www.ilvicino.com
Sun-Thurs: 11am-10pm Fri-Sat: 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)

3.61 rating (42 votes)
Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among readers, but the house-brewed beers are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jade Chinese Restaurant

8001 Wyoming NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87113
(505) 822-8802
www.jadechineserestaurantnm…
Mon-Thurs: 11am-8:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm Sun: 4:30-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Chinese

4.06 rating (17 votes)
Jade is 90 percent identical to any of the dozens of Chinese restaurants in town, but come for that other 10 percent--the little things Jade does better than all the rest. Take the barbecued spare ribs for example. At Jade, the barbecue sauce is sharper, spicier and with a hint of cherry flavor, and it’s just the first in a series of pleasant little surprises. The wonton soup tastes like it came from a stock and not just an overly salted broth. The sesame chicken is breaded Japanese-style instead of being heavily battered, and the duck is served in fat little chunks which are tender and pan-fried with the skin still on. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Jinja Bar & Bistro

8900 Holly NE Ste B (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87122
(505) 856-1413
jinjabistro.com
Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian

3.77 rating (38 votes)
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, orange peel beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

May Hong

9800 Montgomery NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 291-8958
Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian

3.48 rating (46 votes)
The menu here is expansive, but you can hardly go wrong. Just close your eyes and drop your finger anywhere—bun bo hue (spicy beef soup), ginger chicken and banh mi thit (Vietnamese sandwhich) are particularly good. Wash it all down with a fresh limeade or a jackfruit julius. Just don’t go on Sunday—it’s closed. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Papa Nacho’s

7648 Louisiana NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-4900
www.papanachosfood.com
Tue-Sat: 11am-8pm Sun-Mon: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: New Mexican

3.39 rating (20 votes)
We're pretty sure if you take any food and stuff it with cheese, dip it in batter and deep-fry the sucker until it's crunchy and golden-brown, it's going to be good. But try the relleno at Papa Nachos—you’ll taste art. While you’re at it, try the unique green chile sauce (which happens to be excellent on turkey) or any of the burritos wrapped in fresh, tender tortillas. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Sakura Sushi LLC

4200 Wyoming NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Suite C2
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 294-9696
Mon-Thu: 11am-9:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9:30pm Sun: noon-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Sushi, Japanese, Thai, Asian

3.81 rating (21 votes)
Sakura Sushi serves fresh, generous sushi (duh), as well as dishes from Thailand and Laos out of a small strip mall on north Wyoming. But if you order one thing, make sure it’s the udon soup. One bowl is big enough for four people. Dip a spoon in and you’ll strike heaps of firm, dense noodles, caramelized meats and crisp-tender vegetables floating in a sweet-and-savory broth. The curries and goyza appetizers are among the menu’s other high notes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
