Formerly known as Mo's Restaurant, Motto (the result of Mohammad Fayad teaming up with Tony Sfeir) opened this week to feed its first trickle of guests a delicious Sri Lankan meal of spicy chicken curry, a mild green bean and potato curry, carrot and parsley salad and rice.Drinks, including beer and wine, are cheaper than most bars (LL5,000 and LL6,000 respectively) and mineral water, provided in abundance in colored glass jugs laid on each table, is free.But perhaps the best bit is the food they plan to serve, some Thai, some Ethiopian, some Lebanese, some Spanish – a bit of everything, in essence. This week's chef was Sri Lankan, and Sfeir is in charge of bringing in a host of other chefs from migrant communities in Lebanon whose food cultures are normally completely ignored.
