Favorite place to eat in Albuquerque. Live in Ruidoso and always choose to eat at Seasons 52 when in Albuquerque. Love the Lobster Bisque, shrimp flatbread and the sea bass is so delicious.

I had the lobster tails, my wife had the coconut shrimp they were perfectly done, the only "complaint" was with the salad, seemed different from others we've had, not as tasty and short on the dressing but otherwise a great dinning experience.

About the restaurant
Our mission is to open a few restaurants that take care of our guests in every way-treating them like guests in our home, making sure that they feel embraced by the joy with which we extend our hospitality, and making sure that they become entranced by our restaurant. We understand the value of 'regulars' returning weekly and in many cases more frequently. We hope that all of our guests will feel that they belong to a private club, to which we welcome them again and again. M'tucci's Moderno located in Rio Rancho is a sister of our first restaurant, M'tucci's Italian, which is located at Coors and Montano on Albuquerque's West Side. At Moderno, we continue to offer a moderately priced, Italian menu built on a foundation of both traditional and contemporary recipes. The menu, together with the bar (full liquor license) menu, is offered in a contemporary building with black steel elements, high ceilings, and a big garage door that opens to the Sandia Mountains. Inside the steel, we have inserted a more traditional looking wood clad restaurant featuring traditional lighting and Edison bulbs, as well as other playful elements. Our congenial bar and mezzanine offer alternative spaces within which to enjoy M'tucci's food and beverage. Moderno's bar program features our unique shrubs as well as a new collection of original cocktails to complement our food and wine. Our mezzanine can also be reserved for private groups. M'tucci's Moderno is located just west of Presbyterian's Rust Medical Center. At the end of 2016, Jeff Spiegel, Katie Gardner, and John Haas, founders of M'tucci's Restaurants, welcomed five new partners to their ownership team: Austin Leard, Sherri Rivenburgh, Cory Gray, Shawn Cronin and Chris O'Sickey. This ensures that M'tucci's Restaurants are here for the long haul.

We have been to Indigo Crow a few times, but it has been years since we last visited. Went there for a date night. Reservation was for 5:45 on a Wednesday, and it was quite busy. The bar tender poured us drinks while we waited for our table, which was quite nice. Once seated, the server (Dustin) was prompt and attentive, and returned several times to check in and give drink refills. We had the filet and ribeye. Both were absolutely outstanding. Everything about this experience was better that I remembered from prior visits. The menu is not large, but provides enough variety to suit most tastes. Typical fine dining menu. Extremely pleased with this experience, and we will plan on having another date night there again!

About the restaurant

Zinc is a lively three level bistro in Historic Nob Hill. Featuring an open, urban ambiance, Zinc offers casual fine dining on the main level and the loft mezzanine. For those looking for an exciting show, the exhibition bar offers seats right along the open kitchen. The menu focuses on high quality - yet affordable - American bistro fare and utilizes seasonal ingredients, many of which are sourced from local farmers. The Cellar Bar offers the same extensive wine list and premium cocktails as the upstairs, but in a more intimate lounge atmosphere with a lighter menu. Visit www.zincabq.com for menus, pictures, and upcoming events!

My wife, I, and another couple had an early dinner prior to attending a concert. My wife and I had dined at Zinc several times before, and had high expectations that were indeed met. My wife and I started with a glass of wine and our friends had a couple of their specialty cocktails that they thought were excellent. Two of us had their halibut topped with a nicely seasoned tomato-olive relish and included kale gnocchi. One of our party felt that the gnocchi was a bit on the dry side but otherwise tasted good. The other two had spanokopita, which our party said was the best they ever had. Following the entrees, each couple split a salad that, while good, was not exceptional. We split a bottle of Frogs Leap Sauvignon Blanc that went well with both entrees. Each couple split a couple of desserts, which everyone enjoyed. Service was very good, especially as we had a time constraint owing to our concert.

Prairie Star Restaurant and Wine Bar at Santa Ana Golf Club has offered an unforgettable dining experience since 1986. Housed in a renovated 100 year-old adobe ranch house, the warmth and intimacy of Prairie Star is intoxicating. You may absorb the NM Territorial atmosphere of handmade adobe walls, kiva fireplaces and full viga and latilla ceilings while enjoying awe-inspiring and sweeping views of the golf course and the Sandia Mountains.

Our culinary team masterfully creates stunning Contemporary New American cuisine with global influences and Executive Chef Myles Lucero changes our menu seasonally to reflect the time and freshest ingredients at hand. Each dish is carefully crafted from the finest ingredients, locally sourced when possible, and organic, sustainable and fair trade items preferred.

About the restaurant
Upscale Patio Bar and Restaurant Overlooking Old Town Albuquerque

Seasons Grill in the heart of the Sawmill District in Old Town is a local favorite and a visitor's destination! The concept is driven by one core idea: take the best fresh and seasonal ingredients and prepare them in a casually elegant environment. The open kitchen's wood-burning rotisserie & grill creates an opportunity for signature dishes such as Kobe Ribeye Filet, Grilled Jumbo Sea Scallops and a daily fresh fish to be more than a meal, but an experience.

We have a great Happy Hour Wednesday thru Friday on the Rooftop, including food and drink specials. Dine on the second story balcony or inside with open breezes!

Seasons has an extensive award-winning wine list, a full bar and several private dining options for up to 100 people. For more information please visit us at seasonsabq.com or call 505-766-5100
