Tucked in Albuquerque’s historic downtown EDO neighborhood, the Artichoke Cafe has developed a reputation for great food and a commitment to our community and city.  It is a sensibility that translates into a warm and robust menu and an extraordinary dining experience.

The Artichoke Café menu is the result of a collaboration between myself (Executive Chef Pat Keene) and chefs de cuisine Christina Martinez and Casey Bower.  My French and Italian culinary training and Christina and Casey's use of innovative ingredients and techniques fuse to offer guests a contemporary twist on classic dishes. We both agree that all great food starts with the freshest, finest, and, when possible, locally grown, ingredients.

Artichoke Café’s highly acclaimed wine and spirits program is the product of Beverage Director/Sommelier, Julian H. Martinez.  Terry and Pat both respect his depth of knowledge and passion for fine food, wine and spirits. The restaurant boasts a "Wine Spectator Award" winning wine list replete with impeccable offerings selected with purpose and intelligence. Deemed the "Best in Albuquerque", the fully sotcked bar offers perfectly executed signature and classic cocktail service
