Claus and Linda Hjortkjaer have resurrected Le Café Miche in the space formerly occupied by P'tit Louis Bistro at Third and Gold. The menu is a contemporary take on Hjortkjaer's well-known mélange of French and his native Danish cuisine. Don't miss his house-made Rygeost cheese served on rugbrod (pumpernickel) with sliced leeks and radish. There is limited outdoor seating, weather permitting. (Alibi Staff, September 12, 2013)

This French/Italian restaurant occupies the end of a strip mall in La Cueva Town Center at Paseo and Wyoming. Surprisingly, organic beef, free-range chicken and wild-caught salmon from the Fish Hugger are standard. The lunch menu is a pared-down version of the dinner menu in smaller, cheaper portions, while dinner includes European classics like beef Wellington and sole meunière. We still get happy thinking about a plate of immense diver scallops in a clarified beurre blanc, flanked with a rainbow of perfectly roasted yellow and purple potatoes. Have a soft spot for crepes? Chez Bob’s, both sweet and savory, could hold their own on the streets of Paris. Seriously. (Alibi Staff, March 29, 2012)

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 bacon is 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 servicea $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)

Cuisine: French, Italian

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 inwe’re talking $55 a person minimum. And finally, ready your palate for some spectacular food. We recommend the yellow fin tuna crudo or the Pat LaFrieda tartare, but really, it’s hard to go wrong at a place like this. (Alibi Staff, January 28, 2014)

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. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

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. Descarpentries has a knack for building Paris from scratch. The restaurant on Gold transports you to Paris of the ’20s. P’tit Louis on Silver resembles bistro along the outskirts of Paris. The menu welcomes diners to many of the downtown bistro’s popular dishes but there are some new choices as well. Descarpentries will continue the practice of daily specials. Nob Hill diners will have the added pleasure of dinner hours Thursday through Saturday and, when weather permits, alfresco dining on the patio. Special private seatings are still available on other evenings. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

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.

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.

In the expanse of parking lot surrounding the Century Rio megaplex is a little piece of Paris. Most Burqueños are familiar with Chef Jean-Pierre Gozard’s previous efforts: Le Crêpe Michel, Le Marmiton and Casa Vieja. Now behind the burners of his own eponymous bistro, Chef Jean-Pierre’s deep skill set is even more apparent. French classics like superb vichyssoise, eggy, delicate crepes, flavor- and texture-packed salads, and transportive sole meunière make Café Jean Pierre one of the most exciting new developments in Burque’s continental restaurant scene.

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 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., or a relaxing dinner from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. And don’t forget an orange marmalade and liqueur-covered plate of crepes Suzette for dessertyou won’t be disappointed, so allez vous-en!

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 phenomenalmany 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)

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)

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)

Cuisine: American, French

This is a keyhole sized French-American restaurant with a menu that changes on the daily. With that being said, the intimate setting and locally sourced artisan menu make a worthwhile destination, especially if they’re serving up green chile-spiked French onion soup. Stop by with flexible expectations and see what’s on the board. (Alibi Staff, April 17, 2014)

Breakfast croissants with butter and marmalade, a quiche du jour or a rich seafood crepethis place has French cuisine down pat, but the prices won’t have you screaming “ non, non !” There are daily specials and desserts, and if a crepe with ice cream and rum-marinated cherries doesn’t turn you on, then nothing will.
