Recommendations for a later dinner in ABQ?
I am flying into Albuquerque this evening and will probably try to get out for dinner around 8-8:30ish. It seems like a lot of restaurants in ABQ (especially New Mexican restaurants) close before this time. Can anyone recommend a good non-chain restaurant where I can get a meal at this time? Would prefer local cuisine/something unique to the area. Thanks!!
Frontier will work for you. It is on Central, just across from the University. Coming from the airport, take Yale north and then make a right on Central. Frontier is on the corner of Cornell and Central. It is open until the wee hours and is a tradition for students and community alike. Deb
Hi DebitNM :) (Mhag from you know where!)
I just thought I'd give a thumbs up for Frontier. DebitNM has sent me there for a meal and it was certainly enjoyed.
I wanted to also include two new to me restaurants that I just tried this past weekend. Il Vicino is open till 10pm on weeknights and serves EXCELLENT European style pizza from a wood burning oven.
The Range is open till 9, so you might be able to make it there. They have a mix of New Mexican and American food. I really enjoyed the Range Quesadillas.
Those are also both great places to eat. There are 2 Il Vicino locations [ one on Central in Nob hill and the other on Juan Tabo and Montgomerey]. Range Cafe also has multiple locations [on Wyoming; also in Bernalillo which is north of ABQ on I 25].
Hope you had a good time ballooning!
The weather was very uncooperative this year. Unfortunately, the weather that makes ballooning excellent in Oct can also make it a no go - too much wind.
Glad you like Frontier; they have the best tortillas! I love watching them being made on the little rotating machine. So light and puffy.
