Mo's Restaurant Review

: It's easy to like Mo's, which offers solid food without taking itself too seriously. The juicy, half-pound burgers are standouts, and the kitchen’s repertoire includes wild renditions like the Foggy Bottom (with peanut butter and sour plum jam) and Frank's fantasy (with sour cream and caviar). We favor one layered with blue cheese and caramelized onions, but a stripped-down old-school version shows off the quality Angus beef. Generously plated salads are offered, such as a Yucatan-inspired chicken Caesar. Elevating the cuisine above burger joint fare are items like a delicately tempura-battered sole served with light, house-made tartar sauce. Owners Jay Sadofsky and Bruce Hecker updated the woodsy eatery---the building once housed the first-ever IHOP---with contemporary lighting and warm copper accents. Lining the walls above cozy booths is the work of photojournalist Leigh Wiener, including vintage shots of everybody from Sandy Koufax to Igor Stravinsky to Jack Warner. Casual and friendly but with a surprisingly strong celebrity following (its nickname is "the Warner Bros. Commissary”), Mo's keeps its loyal clientele coming back for more.
