A gem in Hotel Andaluz
The restaurant, off the main lobby of the Hotel Andaluz, is located in one of the historic gems of Albuquerque. The blend of Spanish Colonial, Moroccan and Mexican ambience is worth a visit!

Went with a group of friends and we had a great time. Everyone really enjoyed the food although if I am bieng honest I thought it was good but not great. Maybe I was just expecting to be blown away because of the chefs reputation.

Early dinner before a concert
My wife and I stopped in on a Wednesday night for a quick and early dinner prior to the Joe Bonamassa concert. We ordered tapas and dessert and then walked to the ABQ Convention Center for the concert. The restaurant was nearly full and the bar was hopping. The restaurant is just a short walk from the convention center and the food and the service here is first rate, so this will be our new go-to place for dinner when we are visiting the convention center or the Kimo.

Glad to have Chef Caruso in ABQ!
We have eaten at Chef Caruso's La Boca in Santa Fe and really enjoyed it. Last night we tried his new restaurant at Hotel Andaluz in ABQ and also enjoyed this experience. Each of our items was excellent (flat iron steak with a sea-salt caramel sauce, the lamb, the fillet, the salads and the desserts. It would be nice if there were a few more gluten free options, but the waiter (Eric) brought us some celery so that those at the table with gluten issues could still sample the hot gouda, chorizo, apple bake w/ crostini. His wine selections were also very good. The main restaurant is a little noisy, so next time we are going to book farther in advance and request a casbah--they look like a lot of fun!
