MO Bar Restaurant Review

: Natural light streams in to illuminate the dark crimson and leafy green wood-finished interior of this all day restaurant and lounge. It’s the bling, however, that really shines, off local ladies who gravitate here bedecked in their branded finery. It’s especially evident during the afternoon tea that features seasonal innovations. Also a popular spot for power meals throughout the day among local business elite, breakfast is a cornucopious buffet of authentic dim sum, fresh fruits, homemade bread, and coffees from an in-house barista. The all-day lunch menu features creative comforts like butternut squash soup and mini Wagyu beef burgers. A significant shift towards catering to health-minded diners means the menu extends to calorie-conscious 'Light Delights,' which are rich in proteins and fiber and low in carbohydrates, like the crunchy organic beetroot and green French bean salad. 'Vitality' dishes incorporate carbohydrates low on the glycemic index, such as a whole-wheat wrap with organic egg and scallion omelet, crunchy cucumbers and a light peanut sauce. Heartier dishes can also be ordered day into night --- try the traditional Hainan chicken with ginger and lemon grass, an authentic Boston lobster roll on a toasted bun or USDA Prime flat-iron steak. DJs spin Wednesday to Sunday nights, when the calming, low-lit space morphs into a sexy dance hangout.
