Shipman's favorite Albuquerque seafood restaurants
After years in California, I'm very spoiled when it comes to
fresh seafood. Still, I always crave it, and there are some
places to go for good fish and seafood in Albuquerque.
- Just opened in early December 2010:
Desert Fish, on
the south side of Central between Carlisle and Washington.
Based on one visit, this looks quite promising.
I was quite happy with the New England-style clam chowder
and a seafood salad with
scallops, shrimp, and Dungeness crab on high-quality mesclun
greens. They have a separate menu just for oysters, a full
bar and live music.
- Pappadeaux's***, on the I-25 frontage road just south of
Jefferson. Very popular, expect a long seating delay,
especially at peak hours. Portions huge, prices a bit high but
not a bad value if you're hungry. Good assortment of fish,
- Pelican's**, 9800 Montgomery. The atmosphere is better
than the food. Not all that bad, just dominated by the other choices.
