I always go to Sadies down on fourth when I am in town. But, the past few times I have been there its all about 'turn around' and frankly, the food seems to have lost some of its 'zest'.

Back in the day, Sadies was a great little restaurant in a bowling alley, that was unique, folksy and cheap without seeming so.

Anyone else have any thoughts on good, great Mexican food in the Duke city?

Thanks for the info, Noel! I'll have to check it out next time I am in the city....

Has anyone tried "Cafe Jean Pierre Creperie Restaurant" near Century Rio 24? I had my first foray into French cuisine this evening and it was absolutely fabulous! My friends and I had just finished watching "Julie and Julia" and you can't help but come away with a desire to eat French food. They have great food and wonderful staff! Plus, the chef is actually French! I highly recommend this wonderful eatery.

Foodies tend to be drinkers too! You are all invited.

Cosmos tapas on Central is a GREAT little resturaunt! A very nice, but a little small tapas menu, a nice choice of entres if you want one, a great wine menu and beautiful, if not a little crowded dining area. Good service with the owner personally checking on all diners. It is just 2 months old so a few kinks to work out but nothing that would stop me from going back over and over again. And live flamenco! The bar was lovely and I will certainly try that as well. Soccer on the TV.

Go El Norteno! I talked to the owners and they said end of October. Will be under a different brand name as they will keep the new location as well. Welcome back to an International District staple!

I'm hoping to attend a wine dinner at Savoy Bar and Grill this Wednesday, February 24th. It's a vegetarian wine dinner and since I'm a vegetarian I'm super excited about it, however the last one Savoy presented was attended by all meat eaters and they VERY much enjoyed the cuisine. It's still decadent and delicious and the wine pairings were superb. The menu is on their site but I prefer to be surprised so I'm not looking!

We are new to Albuquerque (Oct. 2009) and have tickets to see Norah Jones at KIMO later this month. Where and what are the pre-performance dining opportunities close by to the theatre? Anything except fish and sushi. Thanks for your help.

Wait wait wait... McGilvrey's is still open?! McGilvrey's of Caleb Crump (sp?) fame? That has made my day!

McGilvrey's! : zoom in, zoom out, zoom in, zoom out :

I have no idea what he's up to. That show was syndicated in Chicago, right?
