Consistently excellent, innovative fare

We ate here for the third time, and all three meals have been of similar quality. At the most recent visit we reserved a special 3-course Thursday dinner, which must be done in advance. All three courses were based on carrots, of all things - who would ever think of doing something like... read more

This place has been on my bucket list for years. I finally had an opportunity to go when I won a Super Bowl bet(go Patriots, even if you are cheaters). We went on a Thursday night and took advantage of the $25 Thursday night supper which happened to be a NE Clambake(appropriate since I'm from Boston). The meal started w... More

I had the price fix on Thursday: Melted triple crème brie and almonds over local lettuces Steak frites Crepes Suzette I can not say enough about how great this meal was. I applaud the fact that they use local seasonal foods. Every added sauce, dip and whipped cream was a burst of flavor in my mouth. My gosh - take... More

JJ101 is my favorite restaurant in Albuquerque. The food is consistently excellent, the staff is wonderful, and I've never had a bad dining experience here. Food is seasonal and the menu is always interesting. If you are lucky enough to be in town on Thursday see if you can get in on the $25 dinner, a deal that can't be... More

I have never been a big fan of the restaurants in Albuquerque. Living in Santa Fe can spoil you. We were at the airport in Albuquerque and decided to stop at Jennifer James for dinner. I was pleasantly surprised. The food and the service was terrific. It has a limited but satisfying menu. We sat at the community table and... More

Visited this restaurant solo during a business trip. The atmosphere was cozy, was greeted with a smile. The open kitchen was a nice touch. Food was well prepared. No negative things to say.

My husband and I have eaten at Jennifer James 101 about 4 times in the past few months. It is the place we go for a special dinner (like a birthday and anniversary) and for the Thursday night specials. The restaurant is small so a reservation is essential. The menu varies depending upon the season. The wine list is limited... More

I wish I could eat here all the time. The way she combines flavors always amazes me and I always come away remembering the meal. It is a great place to celebrate a special occasion also.

We've enjoyed several outstanding meals here over several years. We've never been disappointed. Our end of year meal on 12/27/14 was no exception. The foie gras and sweet potato soup appetizers, the painted hills rib eye, korean style pork belly, and shrimp mains were all fabulous. Along with the very well chosen and modestly priced wine list and hand-crafted yummy... More
