Elaine’s is the smartest place for dining in town. From the décor to the ambiance to the cuisine. It can be quiet early, or have a nice buzz later on. The menu is crisp, clear and the flavors cover the gamut from outright mouth-watering to the sublime. Chef Gorski presents great flavors, colors and textures that some would consider taking risks, but which we think is just giving the Albuquerque palette a chance to move to the next level. The wines are intelligently selected, and the intimate bar at the back beckons if you just want a nice glass and an appetizer (though the chances are that you will want to stay for more after one or two bites). We have dined at Elaine’s twice and each time come away totally satisfied. It has been described as a place for special occasions, but we disagree. It is a smart place, the smart place, to dine anytime, all the time. We can’t wait to go back, and won’t.
