The indoor dining space is tiny, but the rambling breezeway and courtyard at this EDo café offer a refreshingly peaceful setting for enjoying the Albuquerque weather in the company of some great New Mexican food. Lunchtime fare includes sandwiches and paninis, rounded out with a full roster of espresso drinks. (Alibi Staff, March 6, 2014)

Al’s has moved from the old Relish space Downtown to a spot inside the Main Library on Copper and serves a hefty menu of inspired hot and cold sandwiches. There’s an emphasis on homemade touches, from the sweet onion jam on the roast beef sandwich to the cookie that comes with every order. Good salads, daily made-from-scratch soups, a new sandwich special every day and a supremely good glute-free bread keep the lunch crowd on its toes. (Alibi Staff, November 4, 2010)

Ayurvedic cuisine supposedly works with your body’s natural energies and constitution to create “soul” food that’s on a whole new plane. Winners of Best Vegetarian in our restaurant poll several years running, Annapurna serves food that is satisfying but never heavy and, well, you just feel better after you eat there. Try Sunday brunch with spiced gluten-free, vegan pancakes and breakfast quinoa (but you’ll have to live without scrambled eggs, sorry). The shaded courtyard to the side of the restaurant is spectacular. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Baggin’s Gourmet Sandwiches

3.87 rating (28 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)

We love this strange little place with aggressively retro décor, like super ’70s wood paneling. Cool. Plus, they serve New York deli stuff like bagels with lox and cream cheese, and a club with dill Havarti on rye bread. Our favorite option is the salad trio—you get to pick from Caesar, Greek, apple Waldorf, pasta, potato, fruit, tuna, chicken or egg salads, and it comes with a roll. Wash it down with a Dr. Brown's soda. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

An upstart contender in the crowded UNM coffee-shop scene, this small, well-appointed space is great for cramming before finals or scarfing down a quick breakfast before school or a salad and a sandwich for lunch. So far, the main drawback seems to be that its location—wedged between a laundromat and a piñata store—is just about impossible to find. Fortunately, a new sign helps solve that problem. (Alibi Staff, February 13, 2014)

The Far North Valley setting is gorgeous, inside and out (the spacious courtyard overlooks 10 acres of farm field). The local and organic ingredients are meticulously sourced, and the food is reasonably priced for what you get. Several salad options and vegetarian entrées make it a perfect place to graze.

Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our annual restaurant poll. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte and a tossed cobb salad, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “apple pie with ice cream” and the voice is coming from your mouth. Give in. It tastes good. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gecko’s tapas won our readers’ hearts in BoBR 2014, but it isn’t just the tapas that draw in a familiar and friendly crowd. On Mondays the burgers are all $5 each and come with fries or salad. Watch some sports, eat a burger and enjoy a seasonal ale. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Gravy

725 Central Ave NE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
242-4299
Cuisine: American, Diner

4.56 rating (9 votes)
After two years of preparation, Gravy has finally opened in the old Milton’s building. The place looks great, with a distinctly swank take on the classic diner aesthetic, and the menu follows suit. Multiple varieties of pancakes are offered for breakfast, along with huevos rancheros and an eggy pot pie. Dinner is comfort food-oriented—think meatloaf, fried chicken and chicken fried steak—and there’s plenty of beer (locally brewed and otherwise) on tap with which to wash it down. Try the fried green tomatoes! (Alibi Staff, December 17, 2014)

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)

The sushi chef at Loving Vegan rolls sushi expertly, and if you squint your eyes, the fake shrimp, scallops, salmon and squid look exactly like “normal” sushi. They’re also pretty delicious. Try the bento box with miso soup, small salads (cucumber-seaweed and green leaves in a gingery dressing) and pan-fried spinach gyoza. We recommend the grilled portobello bento with vegetables, accompanied with thin, tender-crisp asparagus and a fat ring of onion on pleasantly glutinous, lightly seasoned brown rice.

Jewish cuisine comes to Nob Hill in the form of Nosh, a friendly deli-style café where the lox is lush, the cream cheese is tangy and the owner calls you “hon.” You’ll walk out smelling like knish, and it’s worth it for a crack at Albuquerque’s most delicious and authentic latkes. (Alibi Staff, November 21, 2013)

Relish Sandwich Shop

Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: American

4.5 rating (16 votes)
This stylish little cheese and sandwich shop serves smart comfort food that’s blessedly unpretentious. A small but well-rounded menu of hot and cold sandwiches sells for $8 or $9 across the board and gets paired with innovative takes on deli classics (green apple and jicama slaw, for one). Composed salads are simple but luxurious with touches like homemade mozzarella and real tomatoes. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Besides the yummy hamburgers and plentiful beer varieties, it’s also quite exciting to see another good mom ’n’ pop taking root at the lonely intersection of Coors and Montaño. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Thai Vegan

5505 Osuna Rd NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87105

Lunch Monday-Saturday: 11 am-2:30 pm Dinner Monday-Sunday: 5-9 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.7 rating (13 votes)
The Thai Vegan menu includes fake shrimp, chicken, fish and pepper steak. That said, it isn’t the sophistication of vegetarian faux meats that makes the place so good. It’s amazing because the cooks really know what they’re doing, and they use quality ingredients. The Thai iced tea (yup, that’s vegan, too) is like sipping Bangkok through a straw. Voted Best Vegan Food for 2013. (Alibi Staff, November 4, 2010)

Vinaigrette

1828 Central Ave SW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
505-842-5507
www.vinaigretteonline.com
11 am-9pm every day (hours can change without notice)

3.75 rating (4 votes)
A restaurant that focuses mostly on salads may be a hard sell for meat-happy Burqueños, but make no mistake: Vinaigrette does salad right. From gourmet options that feature duck and arugula to more delicate fare with pomegranate seeds and shoestring yams, Vinaigrette presents a world of salads you may not have known existed. And much of their menu is locally grown at their fields in Nambe, NM, too. (Alibi Staff, April 25, 2013)

Yeller Sub

7200 Montgomery NE (Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 888-9784

Mon-Sat: 10am-8pm Sunday: 11am-6pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Lunch

3 rating (13 votes)
Yeller Sub is the place for great subs, like meatball, steak and egg, sliced top-round roast beef and a steak and grilled onion that isn't quite downtown Philly quality, but it's not bad. There's a soda fountain where they can whip you up a mean milkshake for about three bucks, and for four, a banana split big enough to send even the most hardcore sugar junkie into a coma. They've got fresh salads and homemade cinnamon rolls. They cater, they deliver, they bake their own rolls, and they've got excellent, friendly service at the counter no matter what time of the day or night you wander in looking for a meat fix.
