Tucked away in an unexpectedly urban neighborhood of Williamsburg, Moto is the ultimate find! This Euro-fusion restaurant combines the air of old world charm with contemporary culture. It is dimly lit and perfect for a romantic meal or a special occasion. Space is limited and the demand is high so you should definitely arrive early and expect to wait for at least 30 minutes during prime dining hour as they do not take reservations.

The menu is small in choice, however, in no way lacks flavor or originality. There are several tapas style plates and appetizers and a more limited selection for entrees. The most impressive appetizer we tried was the Warm Lentils with Fig and Walnut Crouton and Queso Fresco

For desert, we ordered the renowned Warm Date Cake with Toffee Sauce. As someone who tends to prefer savory to sweet flavors, I was blown away by this foodgasmic desert. It is a MUST.

I highly recommend Moto, and if you dine on on Friday or Saturday evening, there is a high likelihood that you can enjoy a live jazz quartet during dinner. This was an added bonus. Moto is by no means a cheap meal so save your money because when you go there you will want to go ALL out. Bon Appetit!
