Restaurant Review

Carolina’s

That’s new Mexican, not New Mexican

California-style Mexican means more shredded cabbage, white cheese and guacamole, and less grease.

New breweries are popping up in Albuquerque as fast as Vietnamese restaurants in strip malls. Now we even have a strip-mall brewpub.

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.
