Next Meetup

Lunch at the Shark Reef Cafe
This Shark Reef Cafe is at the City Aquarium but you don't have to pay for admittance. All the tables have great views of one of the large aquariums with large fish, turtles, Manta Rays, etc. You order at the counter and then later it is delivered to you at your table. After we finish our lunch, those interested can go on a 4 mile or less hike with me in the Bosque next to the Rio Grande just a few blocks from the Cafe. Others might want to tour the aquarium after paying for admittance. This cafe has been popular with other groups because of the great views of a large aquarium with much large aqua life. Since this is a relatively small group, please don't post on for this event unless you are pretty sure you will make it. If you post on and later find you can't make it, please be considerate or other member and post off ASAP. Meet inside the Cafe. I will put up a sign on a table.

What we're about

Those of us who live here know that New Mexico is known for the high quality of the food. Because we can get wonderful farm-fresh ingredients, and the state is a magnet for people from all over the country, we enjoy foods from around the world. With that in mind, this Meetup group focuses on high quality dining in all types of venues and price ranges. We go to hidden home-style gems, fine dining restaurants, and everything in between. The common denominator is the quality of the food.

Let's get together for food and conversation at a variety of restaurants in and around the Duke City. We will visit the newest restaurants and revisit old favorites. We meet at least once a month, usually on the first Thursday of the month. We will also offer BONUS EVENTS such as brunches, lunches, or field trips. Feel free to suggest events and volunteer as an event coordinator.

Here's the bottom line: In order to accommodate large groups, restaurants must hold tables and bring in additional staff. If you are NOT going to show up, you MUST let us know by noon of the day of the event. We will do our best to fill your slot with someone from the waiting list. If you are a NO SHOW, you will not be allowed to join us at another time. And if you show up without letting us know via the website, there's a chance you may not be seated.
