ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – It’s a pretty familiar sticker, and when people see it they know they are getting the best.

Albuquerque The Magazine has given the Duke City a voice on who or what is the best of the best around the city for over 10 years, and now the votes are in for this year’s picks.

The Best of the City addition is something the community and visitors can refer to year-round on where to go around the city.

Best of the City winners, Comedian Lauren Poole and Restaurant Owner Jimmy Daskalos and Chef Jose Maldonado, joined KRQE’s This Morning team to talk about their win. Watch above.

Poole is most commonly known for her “Things Burquenas say” videos.

El Patron was named the Best New Mexican Restaurant. Chef Maldonado showcased their menu.

From the best restaurant to the best museum, there’s something for everyone. New categories are hitting the pages this year also. Readers can find the new beer category and find out the best local IPA and even the best brewery atmosphere.

Over 250,000 votes came in this year to help with over 100 pages of the top five in all the categories.

The Best of the City issue hits stands on Wednesday, November 30th.
