Tapas, like mass chain emails and nuclear trade secrets, are best when shared with loved ones. Pass the love around with today's Groupon: for $11, you get $25 worth of tapas, drinks, and more at Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar.
Mojo's menu of small plates offers up traditional tapas favorites with contemporary twists. Chef Eric Erhard's signature mojo kebabs marry meaty fauna and equally robust flora, such as the pork and pineapple kebab with a binding cinnamon-rum glaze ($6.95), or the swordfish kebab with squash salsa ($8.50). Tapas such as maple-smoked trout and horseradish salad ($7.95) highlight the eatery's trend of comingling the sweet with the savory. Woodchuck cider–steamed Canadian mussels with smoked bacon and fennel ($7.95) hark back to a time when burly Canucks could relax in a beer bath after a long day of groundhog hunting. Non-Piscean options include lamb sliders, which glide down esophageal chutes on a delicious apricot mustard mojo ($7), and a wild mushroom and goat cheese flatbread pizza, topped with arugula and truffle oil ($9.95). Sides such as grits come plain ($2.95), or "sexy" ($4.50) for diners looking to take their relationship with a hot smoked salmon club with bacon ($8.95) to the next level.
Located in the historic South Grand district, Mojo offers a wine list of more than 60 selections, as well as signature cocktails such as the haiku, a poetic ode to Tanqueray, Chambord, lime, mint, and the ephemeral beauty of youth ($7.50). Though menu service lasts until 11 p.m. and the bar stays open until 1:30 p.m., Mojo only serves dinner (4 p.m., Monday through Saturday), metamorphosing ladies who lunch into dining dames come sundown.
This Groupon is not valid on holidays.

- In short, the new restaurant has taken the best aspects of the location and added and upgraded. And Erhard has taken some of the best elements of his restaurant background and combined them into an enticing menu. – Joe Bonwich, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar
A veteran of the restaurant industry for 25 years, chef and owner Eric Erhard has brought the globe’s expansive palate to his very first kitchen at Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar, where he cooks what he describes in a video interview as “contemporary eclectic cuisine.” Sauce magazine warned its readers that Mojo “may just put a spell on you,” noting its hard-cider-steamed mussels as a don’t-miss dish. With similar praise, Alive magazine marked as an editor’s pick the basil, lemon, and white rum that intoxicate Mojo’s signature mojito, which might be enjoyed along South Grand Boulevard on the sidewalk patio, regarded as Alive’s “best place to perch.” Both publications praised the lamb slider that Erhard dollops with apricot mustard patiently shucked from a Fig Newton. The diverse food menu and drink selections mixed with housemade simple syrups fuel a lively, modern atmosphere under ornate ceiling tiles or over them on a rooftop patio.
