Mondo Restaurant Review

: Over a couple decades, chef Susan Spicer amassed a huge following at her French Quarter restaurant Bayona. Mondo, her Lakeview venture, is a casual family spot. As the area is increasingly a destination for eclectic dining, Spicer brings a cutting-edge mentality to her menu, evident in such dishes as the herbed goat cheese, prosciutto and peppadew pepper appetizer, and the skewered Thai shrimp with pork meatballs. Pizza is baked in a state-of-the-art wood-burning oven and topped with items like bacon, egg and ricotta, or traditional pepperoni paired with onion, garlic and jalapeños. The wine list could use some expansion, but the inclusion of a full-bodied Argentinean Malbec and a hard-to-find South African Chenin Blanc is welcome. Cinnamon beignets for dessert are irresistible, especially since they are finished with yogurt sauce, nuts and honey. Another standout is the peanut butter pie with dark chocolate ganache. The place is generally packed, but the sometimes long wait for tables is worth it. And if you thought nothing new could be done with deviled eggs, you just haven’t met Spicer’s version (hint: rémoulade aïoli). Try them with an ice-cold martini chaser.

We love Bayonas, so we were looking forward to going to Mondos. We went tonight. It was my birthday. I hope I don't ever have to go again. The food was mediocre, at best. The service was poor. We had to ask for water glasses to be refilled. My friends have had poor reviews of the restaurant, but I hoped it was just the woes of the first few days of opening a new place. We love eating out, but we won't be back here soon.
