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.

Casa de Benavidez is located in the far North Valley, but if you’re looking for one of the most beautiful patios in town and a good breakfast burrito or just someplace to sit and have some chips, queso and a mind-erasing Bloody Mary, this place is well worth both the drive and your time.

Farm & Table’s North Valley setting is gorgeous, inside and out. (The spacious courtyard overlooks 10 acres of farm field.) The local, organic ingredients are meticulously sourced, and the food is reasonably priced for the level of quality you get. Several salad options and vegetarian entrées make this a perfect place to graze. For brunch, try the carne adovada with eggs. Don’t forget a refreshing dessert of house-made ice cream or a sorbet trio.

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.

Kelly’s Brew Pub

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
Besides its late-night menu and 20-odd house-brewed beers, Kelly's has an enormous, dog-friendly patio that somehow manages to be packed to the elbows, lively and laidback at the same time. Snag a spot by the rails for some of the best people-watching in Nob Hill. The food is decidedly geared toward the bar crowd (the kitchen stays open until 11pm, but the food isn’t the strength here), with shades of cow, ostrich, turkey, buffalo or veggie on the burger menu. Get one with a side of sweet potato fries.

Monte Vista Fire Station

3201 Central Ave NE (Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87106

Mon-Fri: 3pm-2am Sat: 11am-2am Sun: noon-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)
If you don’t like it loud, it’s best to avoid this place on the weekends. But stop in for a late lunch or weeknight burger and a beer, and you’ll have a whole different experience. The beef here is grass-fed, New Mexico-grown, and steroid- and antibiotic-free, and Monte Vista’s cooks deserve praise for what they do with it. The freshly ground burgers are big and juicy, the chile cheese fries hit the spot, and the beef skewers are tender and one of the best deals on cow in town.

Pop Fizz

Albuquerque NM 87105
508-1082
www.pop-fizz.net
Mon: 11am-6pm Tue-Sun: 11am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Pop Fizz’ Mexican-style paletas are made with real fruit and organic cane sugar for a frozen treat experience you can’t find in a box at the store. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

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.

Vinaigrette

1828 Central Ave SW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM 87104
505-842-5507
www.vinaigretteonline.com
Mon-Sun: 11 am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
A restaurant focused on salads may be a hard sell for meat-happy Burqueños, but make no mistake: Vinaigrette does salad right. From gourmet options that feature duck and arugula to more delicate fare with pomegranate seeds and shoestring yams, Vinaigrette presents world-class salads you may not have known existed. And much of their menu is locally grown at their fields in Nambé, too.
