Restaurant Review

Next Door to the Brewery

Sweets and sandwiches at Three Little Birds

Three Little Birds is about as close to a deli as there is in Albuquerque. They do breakfast and lunch and, cleverly, stay open late to cater to the Tractor Brewing crowd as well. You can order at TLB, take a number and let them know that you’ll be at the brewery, and they’ll bring your order over to you.

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.
