Restaurant Review

The Bar is Where It’s At

Brixens makes fine drinks and casual fare for out-of-towners

Brixens is one part dressed-up sports bar and one part standard American casual restaurant.

Food on the Move

FishCat Cafe in Alpine, Texas

A horse trailer sake bar in a small Texas town. Of course.

Robin Babb didn't know what sort of late night dining she was expecting to find in Alpine, Texas, but she certainly wasn’t expecting a Japanese fusion food truck with horse trailer sake bar.
This young maiden is no match for this criminally large turkey leg.

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.
