Hello New Mexico Hounds and thank you for all the collected wisdom. I'm coming to Albuquerque for business and, unfortunately, will probably be eating catered hotel food most of the time :-(. That said, I will be free the night I arrive, starting about 8 or 8:30. I'll be alone and would, of course, like to eat the best New Mexican (i.e. can't get it elsewhere) food that I can get my mouth around for my only real dinner.
I'm staying downtown (I guess: 3rd and Tijeras) with no car, but am happy to cab (or walk) a reasonable distance.
Here are some ideas I've picked up on the board and thanks to Gil. Are any of these places NOT likely to be comfortable for someone eating alone? Which should I choose? Other suggestions?
o Mary & Tito's Cafe
o Los Cuates (which one? or are they really twins?)
o El Charritos
Plus, I'll probably try to make a late night break to Frontier, just for the ambience (and the food, too, of course).
