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

Our Dinner on Sunday 7/15 was a superb culinary event. The hospitality, attention to detail and service was exceptional. We look forward to our next dinner at Seasons Rotisserie & Grill.

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.

About the restaurant
Welcome to M'tucci's! A locally owned business that loves making dishes from scratch using high quality products. We make our own sourdough bread, pasta, mozzarella cheese and more! Located in Historic Nob Hill, we have an incredible view of route 66 and a beautiful patio. We also work hard to have an amazing beverage program including hand crafted cocktails, 14 beers on draft and a large wine selection. We tend to go on a wait during high traffic hours so reservations are highly recommended. If you have any seating preferences please note them in your reservation as we have a beautiful bar along with two dining areas and a chefs bar for seating.

Parties over eight are subject to a 20% gratuity. Outside desserts are allowed, but we have a $15 outside dessert fee. We do have one complimentary dessert from our menu for celebrations!

VERY enjoyable place to eat. The servers are prompt and friendly. Everyone working there seems happy. Food is delicious, (only exception was my gnocchi, which were a bit tough and chewy). There are several vegetarian entrees but I’d like to see some vegan options. The ambience is fun and lively. Not too loud but also not too sedate. It feels like everyone around you is having a good time, eating, laughing and conversing.

Everything we tried was excellent. Margaritas, chips, SALSA, pork adovado, and table-side GUAC were all top notch.

Such a wonderful place to celebrate a birthday. Although we had 11 people in our party, the team didnt skip a beat at all. We got to indulge in all of our favorite cuts, hot sides, amazing Brazilian lemonades, and delicious desserts. The team made it extra special for this birthday celebration. FDCABQ once again delivered an experience tailored to my party just like they were fitting us for suits. Well done, Team Fogo!!!
