At Burritos Alinstante, owner Mary Ellen Chavez upholds her mother's culinary legacy with a menu of meaty, New Mexico–style burritos. Chefs grill certified Angus beef and succulent carne adovada before loading them into locally made tortillas. Chefs also peel and slice their own potatoes, and whip up refried beans from scratch every day. Customers can also build their own burritos, choosing from more than a dozen fixings including northern New Mexico–style chicharrones, hand-trimmed steak, and a series of smaller and smaller Russian nesting burritos.
An outdoor heated mineral pool beckons guests at the Garden Gate Day Spa, but its appeal lies in more than just its smooth surface. As visitors slip beneath the surface, underwater music floats gently into the eardrums. Similarly soothing details pop up throughout the spa: a rain shower and dry saunas stand ready in the women's changing room, an aromatherapy room engages the olfactory system, and luxurious spa packages encourages all-day visits.
Pizza 9 is the brainchild of Hasan A. Aslami and Behrad Etemadi?aka Hass and Rod. The pair opened the first Pizza 9 in 2008, and then the combination of Rod's business know-how and Hass's more than 20 years of experience with Chicago-style pizzas helped to scatter franchise locations like pepperonis throughout New Mexico.
Chicago-style deep-dish and thin-crust pizzas emerge from each Pizza 9?s ovens with traditional and gluten-free bases, as well as with the aromas of ingredients such as pepperoni, artichokes, and green chilies. Signature calzones disguise warm centers of bacon, eggplant, and spicy giardiniera, and hearty nests of pasta hide beneath plump meatballs and ladles of shiny marinara.

Within the open kitchen of StreetFood Asia, his award-winning restaurant, he reimagines the satisfying delicacies found in the roving carts and street-side stalls of six countries—China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, and Vietnam. True to the food's up-close-and-personal history, diners get a full view of every wok flip and sizzling flame, watching as the culinary team plates everything from wontons, fried shrimp, and kimchi to noodle-filled entrees such as pho, tom yum soup, and Bangkok street mee siam.

Every day, the chefs at Lucia create a special vegetarian entree using local, regional ingredients. It’s their way of offering a healthful alternative to the heavier steak and seafood dishes on the main menu. It’s also an example of how the restaurant emphasizes environmentally friendly practices; in addition to using local and regional grown foods whenever possible, they serve purified water to reduce the use of plastic bottles and the mess of bringing your own handfuls of water from home. They also donate all unused food to the Roadrunner Food Bank or compost it into fertilizer for local gardening projects.
Lucia’s menus are updated each season with internationally-inspired dishes such as hazelnut dusted chilean bass with truffle mashed potatoes, pistachio crusted tofu steak, and grilled Atlantic salmon. The restaurant, which was crowned Best Downtown Restaurant 2012 by Weekly Alibi, also has a full bar, where you can order hand-mixed cocktails and 14 wines by the glass. Feel free to enjoy your meals and libations in the plush dining room or take them out to the pet-friendly outdoor patio.
