Like attaching a fake mustache to a Halloween mask or cleverly changing your name from Obi-Wan Kenobi to Ben Kenobi, adding a new ingredient to something familiar can render it delightfully unrecognizable. Enjoy inventive eats with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of contemporary cuisine at Mojos on 86th in Johnston. When redeemed Monday–Thursday, this deal also includes two complimentary glasses of wine.
Mojos on 86th gives time-tested classics a contemporary twist, serving up a menu of locally sourced, seasonally shifting dishes. A generous lunch spread sports selections such as Wirth Farms lamb sliders ($10), laden with roasted shiitake mushrooms, roma tomatoes, and herb aioli, snackily sided with sweet-potato fries. A pre-dinner starter of rock-shrimp ceviche makes a compelling case for heatless cookery ($12), and innovative entrees tout the tastiness of flame-kissed, neighborhood-grown ingredients. Flavorful options include Iowa-raised pork medallions, served with savory chorizo-raisin bread pudding and ample lip-smacking flavors ($21). Vegetarians can seek beyond the salad horizon with crispy caramelized-onion and wild-mushroom polenta cakes with tomato and basil ragout ($19). The dessert menu offers continually shifting flavors, ensuring flighty sweet teeth are kept on their toes.
Crafted cuisine is strikingly set off in Mojos on 86th's casual-chic dining room, tastefully trimmed with polished wooden floors and soothing, neutral hues. An extensive selection of local and imported wines, beers, and scotches ensure palates of all persuasions are adequately watered, and the seasonal cocktail and martini menu garbs fashion-conscious tumblers in the latest libation trends.
