Modo Mio’s Print Mention

We’ve mentioned Girard Avenue’s Modo Mio on this blog before. Philadelphia magazine just visited the restaurant, was thrilled by the Fishtown-meets-NoLibs-meets-NoPhi ambiance (“there’s a mosque on one side, a tattoo parlor on the other, and a pizzeria-red awning out front”) and, most importantly, are stoked on the bread:


“That bread, baked daily on the premises, is the base for bruschetta topped with caper-flecked, balsamic-sweetened chicken liver spread or gorgonzola with balsamic syrup or pureed white beans with white anchovies. The seasonal grilled vegetable plate showcased slender young asparagus, fat portabellas and baby artichokes amid the summer squashes and bell peppers on my visits. Whole almonds are an intriguing addition to grilled octopus tossed with baby spinach leaves, minimally dressed with lemon juice and olive oil.”
