What is your or your company's greatest asset?
Cafe Bien's greatest asset is the talent of Chef Ernesto. He has a unique style that combines flavors to create a modern, flavorful experience.
Why did you choose to do business in Albuquerque?
Ernesto was the sous chef de cuisine at Forque inside the Hyatt Regency for many years, while Lindsey was part of the serving/bartending crew at Maloney's Tavern previously located at the northeast corner of 4th and Central. We have both seen downtown Albuquerque at its best, and see the potential and want to contribute to the downtown movement.
What significant changes have you implemented recently?
After only nine short months of business at our original location one block south of our current location—400 Gold SW in the historic Simms building—we decided to make the move to 400 Central SW. The visibility and traffic that Central Avenue has to offer is priceless. It has made a significant difference in our business in the first three months, and we look forward to establishing our presence in the industry and market.
How do you maintain your competitive edge?
We originally began business as a catering company as a part-time gig for both of us. We still offer catering as a service. Our catering is different because we customize each menu to the event type and desires of the customers. Beginning in summer 2015, we will bring Albuquerque the opportunity to indulge on seasonal menus and specialty dinners—some to be partnered with other restaurants/food trucks in town. We are also partnering with the upcoming Alien Brewpub which is set to open in summer 2015 right next door. Cafe Bien will offer a menu to the patrons and be able to provide the food as it comes straight out of the kitchen!
