Mo’s A Place for Steaks Restaurant Review: Few out-of-state steakhouses make a go of it in Houston, but Mo’s has done just that. Named for the Milwaukee owner’s mom, Mo’s has certainly made a mark in the old Tony’s spot on Post Oak Boulevard, partly because of the patio where the see-and-be-seen crowd hangs, but mostly because they offer good steer and professional service. The tableside meat presentation showcases stockyards of Chicago cuts ranging from the four-ounce Angus and Wagyu filets to the huge “cowboy cut” rib-eyes. Diners can order steaks with a variety of seasonings (blackened to au poivre) and side sauces, including a rather weak mole and a topnotch hollandaise. The creamed spinach can be uneven, but the roasted potatoes with bacon, onion and mushrooms are a savory hit. The Mo-cookie is actually a slab of cookie dough topped with vanilla ice cream and drizzled in chocolate. It’s cookie heaven on a plate.
