Albuquerque French Restaurant

A Cozy French Bistro Serving up Delicious  Fine Dining Dishes

interiorbis·tro [bis·troh; Fr.]
When strolling down the Seine, you stumble upon a charming bistro, the scent of fresh baguettes wafting out of the cozy kitchens and into the street. Patroned by writers, artisans and the simple folk that frequent the morning markets, Parisian bistros feature
seasonal menu items that reflect the freshest available ingredients. Café Jean Pierre, a new addition to Albuquerque’s fine dining scene, is akin to the finest bistros of Paris.

French Chef Jean Pierre Gozard

Chef Jean Pierre’s main attribute—other than his talent for concocting delicious dishes featuring rich sauces that enhance the delicate flavors of his ingredients—is his humility. In fact, he won’t even say he’s the “best chef,” though clearly, after launching five successful restaurants in Albuquerque, he has earned the right to that moniker. In addition to his exceptional culinary skill, Chef Jean Pierre tastes every entrée before it leaves his kitchen and personally mingles with his guests to ensure their meal is to their satisfaction.

Café Jean Pierre: A Hidden Treasure

Tucked away in the Northeast Heights, Café Jean Pierre is a delightful bistro that could easily be overlooked by passersby because of its humble outer appearance. However, when you enter Café Jean Pierre, you are transported to Paris where you partake of baguettes, pate and good wine served up without pretense in good company. This quaint locale presenting the freshest ingredients of the season with rich, flavorful sauces is one of the best places to eat in Albuquerque—complements of the best chef. At Café Jean Pierre, we serve generous portions of fresh seafood, produce and game and pair Chef Jean Pierre’s culinary creations with fine wines from France and California. Contact us today to reserve a table at one of the best places to eat in Albuquerque!

I have truly enjoyed dining at Café Jean Pierre. The food is wonderful and the service is exceptional. I’ve referred numerous friends—all of whom have thanked me and repeated how much they appreciate the fine dining here. They also have “spread the word” and referred their friends and relatives. Thank you sooo much for providing such a special dining experience! ~Tricia D.
We lived in the Loire Valley for two years and Belgium for two years. A frequent trip from Colorado would not be complete without tasting La vrai cuisine francaise at Café Jean Pierre. The Chef's desire to please is incredible. For a taste of France in New Mexico, this is the place. It's charming! ~Lorraine and Glenn B.
