Concierge.com's insider take:
An ideal rest stop on the Palermo shopping circuit (right next to cult shoe designer Mishka), Mott manages to be both slick and welcoming. The contemporary space has two levels: comfortable lounge chairs and sidewalk seating below, a dining loft above, and a gorgeous two-story bar uniting it all. Chef María Lancio's kitchen turns out an ambitious, market-inspired international dinner menu that changes regularly and moves from baby-goat ravioli to mussels in curried broth to spice-crusted steak. But a light lunch may be your best bet: The salads and small plates are creative and fresh, a welcome respite from all that heavy parrilla. Order a glass of white wine and the salmon salad and settle back to enjoy the foot traffic outside, or stop by for a predinner cocktail from the intimidatingly long drink menu.
Open Sundays through Thursdays 9 am to 12:30 am, Fridays and Saturdays 9 am to 1:30 am.
