When people expect certain things out of you it can be fun to throw them a curveball, unless it's your grandmother, in which case you know she's too old to catch up to your heater. Tossing a curveball at your mouth: MörSo.
Chef'd by the Gaztro-Wagon's Matt Maroni, who's spent the last year-plus championing Chi's burgeoning food truck movement, MörSo caters to the man who's too big of a truck himself to eat standing up, going brick & mortar in the former Pastaterra space and splitting things between a more refined, open-kitchen dining room (w/ covered patio) downstairs, and, above it, a snackier cocktail lounge with a deer head lodge-ily mounted over its fireplace. The shareable downstairs victuals are divided into six categories (raw, veg, fish, shellfish, offal, game) and include creations like wild boar belly w/ white beans, dates, and olive puree; brioche-sided duck liver parfait; and a crispy oyster & crab cake combo with bacon, chard, and scallop sauce, as apparently their own liquor wasn't enough to bring them out of their shell. From tempura pork belly nuggets w/ brie fondue, to Manchego & chorizo frites dipped in tomato remoulade, the bites upstairs are designed to pair with cocktails from an alum of The Southern, e.g., a sake concoction flavored w/ cucumber, white pepper, mint 'n lemon dubbed the Dragon's Milk, which when served virgin is preceded by "Dungeons &...".
They're also doling out a weekend brunch with dishes like duck sausage & quail breast Biscuits 'n Gravy, and bevvies that're all-you-can-drink on Sundays -- just don't have so much that you start hurling sliders.
