Pioneering Italians were not only the first to put tomatoes in cuisine, they were also the first people to take photographs of themselves pretending to hold up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Delight in their inventiveness with today's Groupon to Moji Italian Bistro in the ByWard Market. Choose between the following options:
- For $12, you get $25 worth of lunch fare.
- For $25, you get $50 worth of dinner fare.
Moji Italian Bistro extracts premium flavours from seasonal ingredients to colour upscale and traditional Italian recipes. Lunch and supper transform into multicoursed extravaganzas with primi such as butter-roasted black-tiger-shrimp crostini atop a puff-pastry vol au vent ($15 lunch, $16 dinner). Noodles made from 100 per cent durum semolina rotate round fork axes in Moji's extensive anthology, which includes a penne pesto tossed with herb-grilled chicken, broccoli florets, and goat cheese ($10 lunch, $17 dinner) and a cylindrical perfectionist band of manicotti ($10 lunch, $16 dinner). After a Chicago-style 8-ounce filet mignon ($38 dinner only) or Nova Scotia sea scallops dressed in a lychee cream sauce ($28 dinner only), satisfied stomachs communicate their thanks with the sudden emission of operatic arias and loving background purrs.
Exposed-brick walls and mahogany trim enhance Moji's upscale atmosphere like a gilded statue of Robin Leach's sound waves. Relax in high-backed chairs or cuddle in a cushy booth, which supplies privacy for covert conversations concerning cheese-shop heists. Candlelit dinner hours and the modern lighting fixtures make Moji a favourite date-night spot.
