If you like travelling – ...and I don't just mean to this slightly out-of-the-way locale. That's all relative. What I mean is, if you like to be transported to another world than MOTO is just the place to go. I discovered it by accidental intension while cycling down broadway late last summer. The interior design and sensibility brought to mind a futuristic apocolypic French film set, which is what the motorcycle repair owners apparently intended. One of these owners, clad in a Ramones t-shirt, sat down with me for five minutes and discussed his motives.
The menu, by contrast is less elaborate, but no less enticing. The roasted chicken with rosemary mash pototoes are perfect on a cold weekend after Thanksgiving. The final touch was the live music, offered nightly.
The discovery of Jems like MOTO are what make New York such a wonderful city to live in.
southside sweetness – Moto is fantastic, the space is warm and inviting and meticulously detailed. Live music every night I think (jazz, bluegrass) and good service. Generally a very welcoming attmosphere. The food is great (artichoke) and prices reasonable. Just what the southside ordered...
Goto Moto! – This place is fantastic!! It was recommeded to us by the bartender down the street at Boogaloo. Great food, great service, and a great, though tiny, space. Been twice with friends and they were equally impressed. Simple menu, interesting decor and deliciously prepared lite fare make this place an excellent find.
Good eats-great location – Tucked under the JMZ at the Hewes Stop this little triangular french bistro (Okalahoma meets Berlin?) is really great. Service was pretty good too (save for one of the waitresses who seemed a little stuck-up for no reason and more interested in her nails/hair/telephone than her clients). It's cozy and intricately decorated a la left bank 1920's. Everything we had was superb.
A fine-tuned cafe fashioned by a pair of motorcycle renovators. – Hidden beneath the tracks of the elevated J and M trains, this tiny triangular restaurant is the gold standard in faux-vintage chic with distressed everything, antique bric-a-brac and even a subterranean bathroom with a chain to flush the toilet. Heavily barred windows enclose a comfort zone for artsy locals who crave a taste of the trendier end of town in this low-rent sector. Sample the beer and wine list, but don't miss the food including inexpensive panini and homey American fare like rich mac and cheese and rotisserie pork ribs.
good, simple and hearty food for a good value. can't beat the atmosphere: oklahoma city meets berlin. highly recommended!
Head out of manhattan to Moto – I took 8 friends out to Moto a few weeks back--all from Manhattan. At first it took some convincing to get them to venture out to Brooklyn. Since that night, all have returned with their friends. This place is great and has atmosphere not found anywhere else. Attention was paid to every detail when making this place. The best part is that it's at the foot of the subway stairs one stop into Brooklyn. It's closer that a lot of bars I go to in Manhattan. Have Fun.
