Rental Car in Albuquerque NM

1. Geronimo

This award-winning restaurant is located in Santa Fe’s historic Borrego House, which was built around 1756. The eclectic new American fare is served in a minimalistic yet elegant atmosphere. It’s a pricey option, perfect for celebrating a special occasion with a fine dining experience in Santa Fe. It was, after all, named as one of Opentable’s Top 100 Restaurants in America.

2. Antiquity Restaurant

If you want a one-of-a-kind dining experience, then you must visit one of Albuquerque’s oldest restaurants. Antiquity Restaurant serves fresh seafood, charcoal-grilled steaks, fowl, lamb, veal, and nightly specials. This quaint chophouse, in an old adobe house, is just minutes from Albuquerque’s historic Old Town Plaza.

3. High Noon Restaurant & Saloon

If you want a hauntingly good dining experience, then you must visit the restaurant serving excellent food and margaritas in a historic Old Town building dating back to 1785. You can enjoy steak, fresh seafood, wild game, and New Mexican fare while you keep a watch for spirits of the building’s past. If you are feeling especially daring, then you can stop by the Santos Room and wait for the lady in the white dress to appear.

4. Campo At Los Poblanos

Situated on an organic farm in the Rio Grande Valley, the casual fine-dining atmosphere of Campo at Los Poblanos delivers foods indigenous to New Mexico’s Rio Grande River Valley. They consider themselves “the most purely crafted field-to-fork menu in the Southwest” as their own farm harvests many of the ingredients for their food. Reservations are required.

5. The Shed Restaurant

Open since 1953, The Shed offers the flavors of Northern New Mexico that have stood the test of time. This family-owned restaurant, operating under the third generation of the same family, is well-known for its red chili enchiladas and other blue corn specialties. Diners return again and again for the cuisine which mixes Pueblo, Spanish, and Mexican influences.
