Albuquerque Cheap EatsAlbuquerque restaurant and food deals for the week ahead to chow down on the cheap…

Albuquerque Restaurant Week runs from March 10 to March 17, with dinner menus for a flat rate  – mostly at $20 or $30 per person as far as I can see, although Church Street Cafe in Old Town is serving up a super-bargain dinner at $25 for two people, which includes a glass of wine too! Dinners are usually three courses with several options in each course, and some restaurants also offer lunch menus.  Participating restaurants include Artichoke Cafe, Scalo, Lucia at Hotel Andaluz, Zinc Wine Bar & Bistro, Gold Street Caffe, Landry’s Seafood, Sandiago’s Mexican Grill at the Tramway and High Finance at the very t-o-p of the Tramway, and both locations of Jinja Bar & Bistro.

Free Krispy Kreme Doughtnut on Sunday March 10, with no purchase necessary. It’s a Daylight Savings Time offer to celebrate the fact that the clocks SPRING forward on Saturday night. I guess a freebie is one compensation for losing an hour’s sleep! You get one free original glazed doughnut per person, at participating locations including all three Albuquerque Krispy Kreme stores according to the promo page.

50% Off Lucia lunch or dinner in Hotel Andaluz. Pay either $10 for $20 worth of lunch, or $30 for $60 worth of dinner for two people, or $60 for $120 worth for dinner for a party of 6 or more. All options include free valet parking. Limited quantities remain in the deal via Groupon, also for a very limited time, then use the voucher within 60 days.

Albuquerque Living Social has had some good deals lately, including the Sam’s Club discount I posted about this week (now over) and Albuquerque bargains on food, Starbucks, entertainment, car services, home services and vacation and hotel offers.
