Albuquerque suggestions needed

We'll be in Albuquerque next week for 2 nights, Sunday May 6 and Monday May 7. We're staying at the Andaluz and while we'll have a car, I HATE driving in strange places at night (and not being able to enjoy a glass of wine...), but my husband can't walk more than 5-10 minutes. So we'll need to rely on taxis if possible.

I've read mixed reviews of the hotel restaurant, Lucia, but none more recent than last year... any new comments?

We want to stick with local fare (Mexican or New Mexican), but for dinner prefer something with a restaurant atmosphere (not diner, coffee shop, or down-scale). I've been looking at recommendations, but it seems like places like Frontier or Los Equipales might be either too far or too casual. Any recommendations given those requirements?

Thanks in advance!!
