As the name suggests, Mooo…. (located inside the Four-Star XV Beacon hotel) is well known for its meat. From $36 filets to $100 rare cuts, there’s something to please all palates on the Mooo…. menu — and that’s without including the seafood and other great dishes. While you’re here, don’t miss the following:
1. Oysters. Priced at $6 each, they are a fantastic start to a good meal. These plump, fresh treasures are typically sweet with a bit of a buttery taste, and they go great with Mooo’s oyster accompaniments: horseradish, cocktail sauce and raspberry vinaigrette.
2. À la carte steaks. Mooo’s steaks are served à la carte, which means you pay for your meat and then choose your sides, priced separately. Each piece of meat is served with roasted garlic and bone marrow butter. Our favorite is the 8-ounce filet mignon for $36 — the perfect size at one of the best prices in the city. For big spenders, the 6-ounce Australian Kobe sirloin is a juicy choice for $100.
3. Mooo…. mac and cheese. Some things are decadent — and then there’s Mooo’s mac and cheese, which goes far beyond decadence. It comes in a small baking dish with bubbling hot cheese. The dish is so rich that it could take two people to finish it. The regular mac and cheese is $12, but for an additional treat, you can add lobster to it for an extra $6.
4. Truffled Parmesan fries. There’s no side quite like fries — but season the fried goodies with Parmesan and truffle oil, and you’ve got a side dish that’s dream-worthy. The fries are a perfect side to just about anything on the menu, but one of our favorite things at Mooo…. is a plate of oysters and side of truffled fries. It’s a good-sized meal to share with friends at the bar.
5. Soft-shell crab (if available). When soft-shell crabs are in-season (during the early summer months), chef David Hutton does miraculous things with the crustaceans. If soft-shell crab is the special of the night, we recommend you put down the menu and simply order the crab. If you’re craving meat, try the Kobe beef dumplings or Kobe sliders as an appetizer, then have seafood for dinner.
