AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The Artichoke Café has been Albuquerque's date-night favorite since 1989 (and old-timers remember its earlier incarnation even before that). The subdued, softly-lit restaurant keeps up with food trends without seeming faddish, and the menu is always a seasonal mix of Mediterranean-ish dishes, with the occasional more exotic flavor: five-spice roasted duck, for instance, alongside homemade pumpkin ravioli. It’s a good idea to make reservations a couple of nights ahead here, and let them know if you have something special to celebrate. Next door, the same owners run the excellent Farina Pizzeria, which does crisp-crust, creatively topped pies in a more casual, industrial space.
