M’tucci’s Moderno Expands

M’tucci’s Moderno, located in the Unser Pavilion in Rio Rancho, has expanded into the suite next door. The 1,400 square-foot addition will serve as private event space as well as handle overflow dining during busy weekends. It can accommodate 85 people.

“It’s the perfect space for holiday parties, small weddings, office parties and really any special event,” said John Haas, one of the partners of M’tucci’s Restaurants.

Construction begins this week and is anticipated to be complete in November, in time for the busy holiday season. People can reserve the space now, by calling (505) 891-2432.

In addition to special events and dining, the team is planning other uses for the venue including wine & cocktail tastings, food & wine pairing dinners, and a Sunday Yoga & Brunch series. “The need for more dining space and a private room became apparent within a short time after opening.  We are very excited to have a space like this where the possibilities are limitless,” Haas added. “Stay tuned . . . “
