It’s a Saturday morning and what shall we do? take a hike ? take a drive to nearby Mt.
Charleston and frolic in half melted snow and slush along with hundreds of our
new best friends ? We think not! The final decision was made and we headed
downtown to spend the day in many of its cool, chic venues infused by The Down Town
In just a few short minutes we were walking down Fremont
street and remembered quite a lot of buzz about MTO Café. We let our feet do
the walking and arrived at our destination right across the street from City
The restaurant, accented by bright orange hues is open, airy
and a flurry of energy in a laid back, California kind of way. MTO is the creation of owners Ben Sabouri and
Matt Moore of Shift Solutions, LLC.
These two entrepreneurs created Shift
Solutions two years ago and is a result of their love for the restaurant and hospitality industry. MTO is a venue where locals and visitors can mingle and
enjoy a unique breakfast or lunch.
culinary vision comes from Chef-Partner Johnny Church of RM Seafood and Rx
Boiler Room fame. Chef takes a fresh new
take on comfort food making “fast food” healthy and fresh.
Manager Rudy and our lovely knowledgeable server Ashely took
control as they guided us along our Saturday morning culinary adventure. Bloody
Marys were in order and MTO’s version with Sake started us off in the right
A very tasty bowl of brussels sprouts in tart cranberry balsamic reduction
is a very healthy way to start. The hen house wrap is a perfectly prepared
organic chicken with lettuce, roasted
tomatoes and avocado, as well as a creamy caesar dressing in a tomato-basil wrap is a delightfully palate pleasing deal at
