ABQ lunch recs: near the Journal Center

I just got a job on Jefferson right near the Journal Center, and I would love to get some recommendations for good lunch places. I tried Jimmy's this afternoon, and it was pretty good. Don't care about what kind of food it is, as long as it's good.

  1. I've heard good things about that French place.

    1. re: Erich

      Isn't that Café Voila? I had lunch there with my mother, and enjoyed it very much--good food and service, and very calming atmosphere.

    2. Millie's Diner on Jefferson; Hello Deli in the shopping center where Starbucks is on Jefferson; over at The 25! Way there's lots of places: Pars for Mediterranean; Boston's Pizza; PF Changs is on the frontage road [southbound, west side]; Mimi's Cafe; Rockfish; Owl Cafe [gotta have green chile cheeseburger and a shake there!!]
      There are quite a few near PF Chang's too am drawing a momentary blank but these should get you started.

      1. Thanks for all the responses! I definitely want to try all these places. I'm basically right next door to the Hello Deli, so I can walk over to try that. And Mediterranean sounds really good right now. I'll try Pars sometime soon!
