Winner of Best Casual Dining, Best Veggie Burger, Best Toast, Best Healthy Breakfast and Best Desserts in our restaurant polls. Sure, you go in thinking you’ll be good and get a skinny latte, scrambled egg whites and a side of turkey and green chile sausage, but five minutes later somebody’s saying “eclair” and the voice is coming from your mouth. But, boy, do they taste good.

Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the big salads are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew on the patio.

It just makes sense to order the steamed artichoke at the Artichoke Café. Slathered in lemon-caper oil and a raspberry vinaigrette, it makes a great starter before trying a heftier order of grilled curried chicken or sliced steak. Once your upscale lunch or dinner has concluded, adjourn to the sexy wine bar next door. The wine list is actually a bound leather tome featuring a massive assortment of wines. Prices start at a decent $28 or $30 a bottle and zoom into the upper stratospheres of frivolity. You can also order select vintages by the half-bottle or glass. You'll love the front-facing windows, curvy wooden bar and comfy seating.

This indoor-outdoor brewery is as cozy as it is fun. The bartenders are friendly and informative, and you’ll even find the smiling owners working the taps. The identifying feature of the outdoor patio are metal towers that stretch high above the building. Enjoy Asian fusion cuisine from resident food truck Kitsune or order a pizza made in the wood-fired oven.

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunch
This ray of sunshine in EDo serves gourmet breakfast and lunch, sells house-made English muffins and even has a mini-shop filled with goodies like honey, jams, mustards and vinegars, not to mention cookbooks, serving vessels and greeting cards. The tiny wine list is just as chic—five reds and five whites marked on a chalkboard and constantly changing. This list is well thought-out and offers some of the most esoteric varietals and brands available in town. There’s also a large, shady patio, incredible house-made cupcakes and adorable macarons.

Modern General

(505) 242-6928
moderngeneralabq.com
Mon-Sun - Kitchen 7:30am-3pm, juice/coffee bar 7:30am-5pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunch
At this breakfast-all-day joint, Vinaigrette mastermind Erin Wade serves wholesome takes on classic diner food. Think pancakes made with teff flour and full of kale, cabbage and flax seeds, smothered with spicy-sweet mayo and Japanese okonomi sauce. Or a fried egg sandwich on house-made sourdough bread and spread with yogurt. The drink menu is extensive, and includes coffee and tea drinks, beer and wine, smoothies, juices, health shots and warming elixirs. The stylish space is as lovely as the food, and there’s a small shop stocked with books and lifestyle goods that fit the Modern General ethos.
Alibi recommends: Sunshine bowl, London defogger, sourdough bread
Vibe: Warm and homey, in a kind of minimalist way.

searedabq.com
Mon closed, Tue-Wed 4-9pm, Fri-Sat 4-10pm, Sun 4-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
By day an unassuming coffee shop, Seared puts on its ball gown at night and serves a beautiful dinner menu to those who know. Make reservations ahead of time and ask the server what’s good that day. Seared specializes in meat dishes like French-cut pork chops and filet de boeuf, but they’re happy to accommodate vegetarian or gluten-free dietary restrictions as well.
Alibi recommends: Filet de boeuf, kababs, or whatever’s on special.
Vibe: An upscale joint hidden in a coffeeshop facade.

sidetrackbrewing.net
Mon-Thur 3-11pm, Fri 3pm-midnight, Sat noon-midnight, Sun noon-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
If you’re in need of a good conversation and a personalized sampling flight, Sidetrack is the best brewery to go to. The servers are personable and chatty, but if you’re feeling introspective or want a private conversation, take your drink and meal (the food is provided by local restaurants that they have on rotation) and head out to the gorgeous patio. The beer selection is always changing, so there’s always something new to try at this modern taproom.

Sister

407 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
505-242-4900
sisterthebar.com
The cavernous, ground-floor counterpart to Anodyne, Sister is a space tailor-made for happenings. This is a perfect spot for enjoying a quiet dip into the vast draft beer selection with your comrades after work or boogying to the multitude of live bands that occupy its stage nearly every night. Don’t miss the Sunday brunch—our favorite hangover cure is the breakfast burger.

Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
Slate is on a quiet, blink-and-you-miss-it avenue between Fifth and Sixth Street, nestled right in the heart of the legal district. Like the space itself, the menu is polished and unintimidating. Don’t miss the ahi tuna sandwich (with gluten-free bread available!). It's all very affordable for its level of quality. There’s also a fabulous wine loft with the wines listed by style—“just a little sweet,” “ABC: Anything But Chardonnay” or “sexy, elegant, austere”—not varietal or region. Demystifying the label like this makes it easy for patrons to pair wine and food.

standarddiner.com
Sun-Thurs: 8am-9pm Fri-Sat: 8am-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastBrunchLunchDinner
Cuisine: American, Dessert
Matt DiGregory, owner of Range Café, updated this 1938 Texaco Station to include a modern kitchen, large, sleek, jazz-inspired dining areas and a small front patio. Think San Francisco meets downtown Albuquerque. The menu is composed of upscale comfort food, much of it using local ingredients, and it’s priced accordingly (without being too inhibitive). Don’t forget your rock-candy stick to stir your coffee (or just eat off the stick like you did when The Beach was still around).

Sushi King is a small, hip, but casual spot located a few doors up from the Century 14 Downtown movie theater. They serve fresh nigiri, sashimi and sushi rolls, plus an interesting assortment of seafood salads and noodle dishes. They’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef.

Consistently one of the best Vietnamese joints in town. Da Lat does a magnificent breaded frog leg appetizer. The crispy golden legs are scrumptious dipped in Da Lat's salty, tangy nuoc cham sauce.

Monday-Sunday 8 am-9 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Cielito Lindo is named for a love song that is considered to be the unofficial national anthem of Mexico. While it may not be completely authentic Mexican seafood, it is terribly wonderful and a popular hidden gem with in-the-know locals. We recommend the medium oysters, they’re delectable.

The Crown Room

Albuquerque NM 87108

abqdowns.com/the-crown-room
Thurs-Sat: 5pm-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: Dinner
Located at the end of a long corridor in the Downs Casino, the Crown Room’s very existence is something of a surprise. Even more surprising is just how elegant the cozy dining room is. The chaos of the casino outside the door quickly fades away as you dive into cuts of steak that rival the finest in town. Sure, it’ll set you back a few bucks, but the experience is not to be missed.

Mon-Thurs: 11am-9pm Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: noon-10pm Sun: noon-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
You may remember Bangkok Asian Fusion, which used to occupy this place. Now there’s a grand, shiny sushi bar with a huge fish tank behind it that lays out generous portions of great sushi. A plate of sashimi, densely and artfully arranged, turns the table into a school of piranhas. Each variety of fish is carefully garnished with complementary flavors, with the squid tossed in wasabi tobiko being particularly memorable. The seafood salad has so many chunks of raw fish among the greens that you can’t stick your chopsticks in without getting any.
