Mo'Gridders's Pierces the Foodie Blogosophere

The otherwise Bronx-phobic foodie blogosphere has given a new (or really not so new) Bronx establishment some love.  Eater NY, the sister venture of Curbed NY, has done a write up about Mo'Gridder's new spot.

Mo'Gridder's is a BBQ place for serious BBQ heads.  Wings, ribs, burgers,
anything.  Mo's started as a lunch truck down in Hunt's Point.  And Mo's was at the Point way before the Daily News called it the BoogieDown's most improved hood, or before the Bank Note Building, or even before Majora Carter set up a consulting firm

Well, Mo'Gridder's has decided to start another, more conventional venture further north in the Bronx.  Right in the heart of BoogieDown foodie heaven: Belmont.  More particularly in the old Roberto's on 186th street across from Antonio's Trattoria (worth the trip itself for brick oven pizza, but that's fodder for another post). 

ErLu actually was able to sample some of the grub from Mo's at last weekend's Taste of the Bronx event.  There's no hype here;  Mo's is the truth.  The owner did tell us that Mo's doesn't yet have a liquor licence, so its BYOB for now, but that a licence is forthcoming.  

Mo's is open for business are here are the vitals:  632 E. 186th St., Belmont; 347-270-9850.
