Restaurant Review

It’s Like Coming Home

Casa Rondeña’s kitchen is a bold new direction for the winery

Casa Rondeña wasn’t always a winery; it used to be a home. There are a lot of places that have a homey-like decor or a home-style menu, but have they ever felt like dinner with your family?

Weekly Specials

Here We Go Again

Another week, another set of specials. Not specials in the form you’re thinking of. Special events, so to speak. Specials that give pause for occasion and celebration. Specials that make us take a minute to appreciate the city we live in. Specials that make us grow and expand as people.

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.
