This Sunday reminded me why this town totally rocks. Brunch at Nob Hill Bar & Grill, the Zen Garden and tulips at the Biopark and fishies at the Aquarium. Who says there's nothing to do in this town?

If you are wondering, Nob Hill Bar & Grill brunch was excellent. Prime rib AND eggs benedict! and Truffles! and Mimosas! I was in heaven, and the company of Alex, Bryce and Kate made it even better.

thought of you guys this weekend!

movie and yummy dinner friday night; saturday we work in the yard, then went out to dinner again; sunday slept in, made breakfast, played tennis at a great park, then worked in the yard until dark.

What a great weekend, the weather was fabulous!! Yesterday was definitely one of those days where I loved the Cracky (the albu-cracky), ok, after I took my allergy meds....

Sounds like an excellent Sunday. I walked around Nob Hill on saturday and purchased an awesome hoodie from Masks y Mas. The woman there told me to check out the mixed berry pancakes at Sophia's Place for breakfast sometime. Well, that's what I did sunday morning and they were very tasty. My friend had brunch at the Nob Hill Bar and Grill yesterday too and said it was very good. Maybe I'll do that next Sunday. Thanks for the great pictures!

15 dollars for a Portobello sandwich at the Nob Hill Bar and Grill? I really, really wonder who can afford these prices. No, really. Too damn expensive.

Hmm - brunch was $25 including mimosas. I snuck at the menu and thought most of the prices seemed pretty reasonable based on the excellent quality of brunch. I was also a big fan of Ambrozia, so I know that anything developed by Sam Etheridge is worth every cent. But, it's a personal food and financial preference. I have no problem paying a premium for great food - but it better be great.

Nice morning. A little pricey for me though. A big Sunday for me is a bike ride to the Frontier and a breakfast burrito with that swill they call coffee.

Anybody see "Human Footprint" on NATGEO last night? Kinda makes you question our country's obsession with consumption.

I'm with Tricross--although sometimes I go over to R.B. Winnings for the chile taters. Those are really good--and definitely not $25. Although no mimosas available.

I don't have cable, so I didn't see that show, but it does dovetail with a concern I have. People will go out and spend lots of money on things that don't necessarily deserve the expenditure. You don't HAVE to spend $25 to eat well here in Albq. I ate brunch once at Ambrozia and was seriously underwhelmed. I looked over the Nob Hill B&G menu online and the snacks seemed reasonably priced--but I don't know the portions. Also, why would I spend $18 on Steak Frites at NHB&G when La Provence offers the same thing for less? I don't know. It is personal choice, though. If you want to spend your money in that way, who am I to say anything?

For restaurants such as NHB&G, it seems lunch is the ticket. At least your giving someone a paycheck (spending money on eating out) and not ending up with stuff you'll end up throwing away a couple of years down the road (you know, the lobster-lamp that seemed like such a good idea at the time). But hey, different strokes for different folks. I'd rather have people spending money in local dining establishments than on plasma televisions.

Yeah, except don't try to do lunch on Sunday... We stopped in yesterday afternoon and were told AFTER we'd ordered & sipped our drinks that they weren't serving food for another 30 minutes or so. The explanation was incredible vague, but I'm guessing they ran out of brunch & weren't ready to start serving off the menu. No apology. No damage-control handshaking from the manager (nothing from the manager at all, actually). So we sat & enjoyed the weather and our beverages and tried to ignore our growling bellies. When we finally got the green light to order, we were handed not the full menu we'd been expecting, but a tiny, one-page bar bites menu.
That's two sorely underwhelming experiences in a row. Can't say this place'll be high on my list for going back.

Usemoreglue: I wasn't saying that people shouldn't eat out, but that they should really consider seriously whether the amount of money they are spending on that food warrants it--as in over-priced muffins or breakfast burritos, etc. A person can get a good meal in Albq. without dropping tons of money in the process. It's like wine. Expensive does not necessarily equal good.

Seems that NHB&G is getting good reviews for the most part. That breakfast sounds yummy!
