Restaurant Review

More Than a Menu

Curry Leaf’s fare is expansive, creative and supremely gratifying to eat

Curry Leaf is a restaurant worth visiting—probably many times—in order to sample their interesting dishes which are rooted in India and amalgamated with the tastes of New Mexico.

Season’s Eatings: Fall/Winter Edition

What’s good on market stands this season?

Eating seasonally is not only financially clever (things that are in season grow plentifully, so they’re cheaper at grocery stores), it’s also healthier and tastier, as fruits and veggies that are out of season are typically grown with chemicals and shipped from far away.

Romance, Classical Guitar and High Tea

Romantic Classical Guitar and High Tea

Martin Ly is a local classical guitarist who attended Manzano High School before studying classical guitar performance at the University of New Mexico. The guitar program at UNM, as one might recall, is headed by the heady and totally awesome Michael Chapdelaine, who's been guiding young hands as they explore the frets and frequencies associated with the nylon-stringed axe for over 30 years.

Southern Comfort in the Comfort of the Southwest

Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey and Southern Food Pairing

Flights to Kentucky are expensive, and they have Polar Vortices over there. (Yes, that is the plural of vortex. Look it up.) Instead of making that trek on the hunt for some strong liquor and Southern hospitality, why not do some barstool tourism at O’Neill’s Pub in Nob Hill? This Wednesday, Feb. 20, come by to enjoy pairings of four Kentucky bourbon whiskeys with four Southern comfort dishes any time between 5 and 8pm. You’ll sip on Eagle Rare, E.H. Taylor, Buffalo Trace and Blanton's bourbon while the kitchen serves up fried green tomatoes, honey corn fritters, smoked brisket and a pecan pie tart. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday night, huh? The pairing is $25 per person and, obviously, only for those 21 or older.
