Tapas Y Vino / Albuquerque, NM

Located in the historic Hotel Andaluz. Built in 1939 by New Mexico native Conrad Hilton making it the 4th Hilton Hotel. Tapas Y Vino’s chef James Campbell Caruso has been nominated 8 times for the prestigious James Beard Award for “Best Chef of the Southwest” and has been acclaimed by the New York Times, the Food Network, Travel & Leisure and Esquire. Great tapas and small plates and if your not in the mood for food, the hotel is awesome stay. For Albuquerque, highly recommended.
side note: the Bruschetta de la boca in insane good.
