Erin Wade’s Wellness Philosophy

The Vinaigrette owner learns from the land (and from plenty of books)

“Farmer and restaurateur” isn’t the most common job description, but in the twenty teens having only one job is increasingly passé—not to mention economically difficult. The Vinaigrette in Albuquerque is only the tip of Erin Wade’s multi-city restaurant empire.

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.
