Modo Mio Closed?

Tried to go to their website and no luck! Does anyone know what's going on?

      Exactly. call for reservations and ask about menu, why down do not know but has been for a long while.

        Thanks. Just made a reservation for a friend's bday dinner. And was told that a menu could be emailed to me. Will let you know if/when I receive it. In the meantime, anything in particular I should look for (not wild about organ meats)? Also, how does Monsu compare? That could be a backup choice.

          Monsu last time there MHO not as good, Peter was still cooking as the new chef just got there so expect to have improved as l have been in Europe for some months now. If on the menu, his swordfish and duck are lovely at Modo Mio. AFAIAC l could eat the bread with nothing else.

            Modo Mio is much better IMO. Why do you need a backup if you got the res already?

              My friend is very picky about menus. So since it's his bday, want to make sure we select a place he'll be happy with.

              we went there with 4 couples and tried to order as big a variety from each course as possible in order to get a taste of everything. Everything was fantastic. The lasagna with a fried egg over it was great. The rabbit stuffed ravioli was also great as was the braised short ribs of beef. They change their menu each season so my advice is to just go and get whatever floats your boat since the chef is very talented and whatever he puts on the menu he will be able to deliver on and you will love it! I have been there 3 times and each time there wasn't a dish that was short of sensational (and we live near Washington, DC)
