The Dish

All the News That's Fit to Eat

This Just In: Cuban Food!--Over the last few years, the scrap of Central between Carlisle and San Mateo has struggled--rather unsuccessfully--to become the only Little Carib neighborhood in Albuquerque. And I've held my breath through it all.

Restaurant Review

Eurasia Bistro

Galactic food—and prices to match

I still find people who won’t try sushi. And I’m always amazed when I do. Sushi has been incredibly popular here in the states since the ’80s, and even after its peak during the “Miami Vice” years, sushi restaurants have multiplied like so many Starbucks in just about every major city. But, sadly, the idea of raw fish, rice and seaweed will still strike fear in the hearts of the uninitiated. At its mere mention I still get “the face” (pursed lips, squinchy eyes and wrinkly nose) and hear things like “Eeeuuuuck! It’s rawww!” Or my favorite response: “Those weird rich people in New York eat that, right?”

Chocolate to Me Baby

Wine and Chocolate Experience

Slate Street Cafe serves up killer food and even better drinks, with a wine selection that makes most people's heads spin. With all that culinary creativity flowing in the back of house, Slate Street proudly presents the Wine and Chocolate Experience. Not content to offer just wine and chocolate, they curate an experience with a five-course hand-crafted menu featuring the food of the gods paired with vino. On Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 6:30pm, attendees with reservations are in for a treat, with a new menu upping the ante from last year. The highlight of last year's menu was Cocoa-dusted Pork Shanks with an Horchata White Chocolate Drizzle. So, expect quality, high-end dining and a unique culinary experience. Tickets are $69 and the event is 21-plus because of, y’know, the wine. To book your seat, call 243-2210 ASAP.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

Get Out There

It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
