Moto Celebrates 8th Anniversary With Discount, Fabulous Video

2012_2_6MotoDiscount.jpg It's been 8 years since Moto started serving its unique brand of mad scientist-inspired, eat-your-menu cuisine to high end diners on West Fulton Market. And the restaurant wants you to join them for the celebration. For two days only, the price of Moto's 16-course tasting will drop to its original, opening-day price: just $150. And hey, if you can't afford it, at least you can watch it.

The 16-course tasting normally costs $255, so it's a pretty hefty discount. The deal is being offered this Tuesday, Feb. 7 and Thursday, Feb. 9, and if you hurry, there may still be seats available. Call 312-491-0058 to reserve.

Let's say you're not rolling in it and can't drop $150 on such short notice. The folks at Moto have put together a video of an entire dinner, course by course. It's beautiful, intriguing, and will at least provide 10 minutes of food-based entertainment during your work day.
