The Short Order

The Burro Al­ley Café seems to have ev­ery­thing go­ing for it: lo­ca­tion, a won­der­ful pa­tio, a cer­tain Franco-New Mex­ico feel, and a pas­try case full of tempt­ing treats. While one can have a won­der­ful break­fast or lunch here, din­ner tends to be dis­ap­point­ing. Ser­vice, snappy dur­ing the day, also takes a fall at night. The lounge is a good bet as long as one sticks to drinks. It of­fers an ar­ray of spe­cial­ized and gar­den-to-glass cock­tails ex­pertly crafted, though the

re­cent loss of their mixol­o­gist might change that. Rec­om­mended: pas­tries, quiche Lor­raine,

croque mon­sieur, and rack of lamb.
