Hi,

My husband and I will be on our way to the Lightning Fields in mid-October, and will have one evening in Albuquerque on our way there. We would like to see a bit of the city as neither of us have ever been there and have a great New Mexico meal. I have yet to choose the hotel where we'll stay and would like to pick one relatively convenient to the restaurant we choose or close to a breakfast place before our drive to Quemado (that's the kind of girl I am). Is it possible to have a great meal in Old Town?

Looking at older posts, the recommended places are Mary & Tito's, Cecilia's, el Modelo and El Pinto. Someone mentioned Monica's El Portal in Old Town but I couldn't find any other rec. Barela's seems to be a favorite, so we might want to do that for breakfast before heading out. As it seems that everything is relatively close, i wouldn't mind driving somewhere to have the right meal. Could you pitch in re your favorite places, and what to order there?

thanks!
