Albuquerque - Downtown

Artichoke Café

424 Central Ave. SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 243-0200
www.artichokecafe.com
Lunch: Mon-Fri: 11am-2:30pm Dinner: Sun-Thu: 5pm-9pm Fri-Sat: 5pm-10pm Happy Hour: Mon-Fri: 3pm-6pm Closed Sunday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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.
Alibi recommends: Any of their signature drinks will pair wonderfully with the menu. The raviolis are especially wonderful.
Vibe: High-end dining in a clean, classy locale

Farina Pizzeria

Mon: 11am-9pm Tues-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: Noon-10pm Sun: 5-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of Albuquerque’s most established fine dining isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-out younger sibling of the jazzy Artichoke and brings tantalizing options to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, all of it damn good. Sharp and concise, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or the bottle, Farina’s wine list is focused and straightforward. The bar is comfortable and every wine can be perfectly matched with the kitchen’s chic offerings.

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.

The New Mexico grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while the equally yummy ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer bovine-averse diners a larger selection. Beer and wine, shakes, malts and floats are available to complete the sacrament.

Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
This rooftop bar offers a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails to relax with after a long day at work. The food here is fine, but the house-created cocktails—such as the the spicy and refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make a visit to Ibiza well worth the trip.

Modern General

1720 Central Ave SW Ste B (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87104
(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.

999-8414
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.

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.

Standard Diner

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’ve also got excellent sake, so be sure to split a bottle with your sushi chef.

abqwinedive.com
Mon Closed, Tue-Wed 4-10pm, Thu-Sat 4-11pm, Sun 4-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: American
This cavernous space on 2nd and Gold might seem like an odd spot for a wine bar, but Wine.Dive is making it work with a killer menu and a unique, geographically diverse wine list. It’s a great place to go for an early dinner or to meet up with friends for a night out, as they have regular DJ nights and drink specials on weekends. It’s also a great spot for before or after you catch a movie at Century 14, as it’s right around the corner.
Alibi recommends: The Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône, the cauliflower steak and the mix-and-match charcuterie
Vibe: A mix of dance club and casual wine bar.

Mon-Sat: 10:30am-9pm Sun: Closed (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Vietnamese, Asian
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
767-7180
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.

Fareast Fuzion

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.

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 332-0800
www.barleyroom.com
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes, and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger.

China Luck

7900 San Pedro Dr NE Ste 81 (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87107
(505) 822-0525
Mon-Fri: 11am-9pm Sat-Sun: noon-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Chinese
There’s not a whole heck of a lot to eat this far north in the city, so Far Northeast Heights dwellers are happy this clean, reliable Chinese joint set up in their neck of the woods. Serene earth tones and tasteful lighting set the mood. On the table, sesame chicken displays perfectly fried breading that’s crisp without being greasy and is generously sauced with sweet and savory soy notes. Wash those heavier fried foods down with a light, crisp Chinese beer.

Five Star Burgers

Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 821-1909
www.5starburgers.com
Mon-Sun: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
The browned, freshly ground turkey burger is a total masterstroke, one that explodes in the mouth and hits a high-water mark for juiciness. It’s not all burgers, either: The full-sized salads practically come in boats here, and the beer is local.

Jade Chinese Restaurant

8001 Wyoming Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87113
(505) 822-8802
www.jadechineserestaurantnm…
Mon-Thurs: 11am-8:30pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm Sun: 4:30-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Cuisine: Chinese
Jade is 90 percent identical to any of the dozens of Chinese restaurants in town, but come for that other 10 percent--the little things Jade does better than all the rest. Take the barbecued spare ribs for example. At Jade, the barbecue sauce is sharper, spicier and with a hint of cherry flavor, and it’s just the first in a series of pleasant little surprises. The wonton soup tastes like it came from a stock and not just an overly salted broth. The sesame chicken is breaded Japanese-style instead of being heavily battered, and the duck is served in fat little chunks which are tender and pan-fried with the skin still on.

Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm Winter Hours: Sun-Mon Noon to 9:00 PM (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, orange peel beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum.
