How I love love love love Cafe Moto..... It's perfectly positioned under the ghostly rattle and clack of the J/M subway line at the Hewes St. stop (the second stop into Brooklyn). Next time you're holidaying in New York City, keep this place in mind for a perfectly cozy dinner.
I have a serious obsession with their Swiss Alpine Mac and Cheese with Caramelized Onions and Applesauce. Plus it's the only place in Brooklyn where I've seen Sticky Toffee Pudding on the menu.....mmmmmmm
They have great music as well. One night, they had a jazz trio huddled in the corner and a gentleman was playing an antique saxophone, it was perfection.
Here's what NY Mag had to say:
A check-cashing storefront under the rumbling JMZ in Bushwick becomes an artists' cafe in South Williamsburg, and so goes another New York metamorphosis. It's possible you'd even mistake Moto's surreal interior, at once both familiar and unsettling, for the backdrop of a Kafka novel: The sepia tones of this apothecary-like setting are sharpened by flashes of futuristic metal (the bar's taps are refitted bike parts, hence the name). But not all is doomed: Marble-topped tables, crusty panini, hushed patrons, and $6 tap beers like chocolate-y Corsendonk, dense Guinness, and spunky Stella reveal a more palatable intellectual side. — Carla Spartos
