Look inside Khai Vu’s Mordeo Boutique Wine Bar

Everyone has a chance to watch the action as the chefs build the Spanish and Latin dishes with a Japanese influence at Khai Vu’s new Mordeo Boutique Wine Bar. Now the restaurant has its liquor license, unveiling a glass wine rack behind the bar holding bottles galore.

The chef behind Chinatown’s Vietnamese District One Kitchen & Bar and Downtown’s Le Pho has an open kitchen at the back of the small restaurant with 12 seats for watching the action. Diners can also sit at the bar in front of the kitchen with its charcuterie hanging and taps for beer. Sake and white and red sangria also make an appearance. Master sommelier Luis de Santos guides diners through the options.

Several more high-top tables line the floor-to-ceiling windows that wrap the front of the restaurant. Bonus, they face east, away from the sun for the restaurant’s 6 to 10:30 p.m. hours.

Mordeo, Latin for bite, features a menu of small bites, meat and cheese boards, ceviches, sharable dishes, salads, and desserts. Everything can be shared.

Modern lights, creamy buff high-top chairs, and a chic countertop on the bar need to be seen.

Take a look inside.
