High Finance Restaurant & Tavern Restaurant Review

: Located at the top of the 10,000-foot Sandia Peak, High Finance offers a spectacular panorama of the city lights, the Rio Grande, and the dozens of ancient volcanic plugs that stretch away on the horizon to the west. Look the other direction and you'll swear you can see east all the way to Texas. Just don't bother looking at the ho-hum American menu, which has been updated only halfheartedly to reflect the restaurant’s thirty years in business---though the prices on such 1980s standards as spinach-artichoke dip, penne with chicken and sun-dried tomatoes, and grilled salmon with lemon and dill have spiked. Instead, slake your thirst at the bar until you get your fill of the view---after all, you’re paying for it, given the price tag for all the usual California wines and, oddly, big-ticket Cognacs. Then head back down the Sandia Peak Tramway for a better meal at a lower altitude. (Except for a chairlift, it’s the only way to reach the restaurant---but even if it weren’t, the tram’s the way to go for the view.)
