MorSo Restaurant Review

: Food truck operator and advocate Matt Maroni (Gaztro-Wagon) has found a static home for this small plates restau-lounge in the former Terragusto space, teaming up with Fritz Pastry's Nate Meads for sweets. The menu is categorized by raw, veg, shellfish, fish, offal and game. You won’t be sorry if you begin with the carpaccio-style antelope tonnato, hit with the bitterness of dandelion greens. Meanwhile, light, seasonally minded heirloom tomato salad with eggplant and mozzarella is a good follow-up to the crusty bread with truffle-honey butter that graces tables. Flavors and textures are balanced throughout, from the wild boar belly with white beans, sweet dates and briny olive purée to finales like beignets with huckleberry ice cream. Cocktails are a highlight, too, with the Nightshade---a Mezcal blueberry, sage, triple sec and lime sipper---leading the charge. The stylish black and white space has both hangout and date-worthy appeal, while catering to the brunch crowd by day.
