Central Asian
Supremely Asian American. Eastern cooking technique.

Taking inspiration from the night markets of Asia and his Korean-American childhood, Chef Edward Kim pairs eastern cooking techniques with Chicago ingredients to create umami-laden flavors, juxtaposing tastes and textures for a wildly exciting menu. A festive and lively dining scene is anchored by a well-lauded bar program and an open pantry, inviting our guests further into the kitchen experience. Like a nightly Asian Thanksgiving, expect Feast-Style dining, rolling up your sleeves, passing plates with your neighbors, getting sauce on your face - if you’re having a good time you’re doing it right.

    Mott St is our go to for celebrating and we always bring friends here. My partner and I are working our way through their whole menu but we always always get the burger. We’ve had maybe 1/3 of the menu and have loved everything.

    Mott Street is a long time favorite! The food overall is still very good (mushrooms in miso butter are heaven!), but the portion sizes in relation to the price are a bit idsappointing, especially over time. I'm sympathetic to the difficulties of running a restaurant in this inflation environment, but the portions do feel like relatively little food for the price. Of note re: the food: As noted above, miso mushrooms are divine. Could use more mushrooms. The brussel sprouts, which used to be excellent, have little flavor/seasoning. Only redeemed by the extra miso butter from the mushrooms. The king crab fried rice was tasty! Would have appreciated more crab, the rice slightly less ala dente. The lychee martini was essentially a glass of cheap vodka and a lychee from a can. Certainly not worth $16. The chocolate buncdt cake dessert was dry & anemic. The kumquats are a nice touch, and this dish has potential. The kalbi beef is delicious but only a few pieces of beef while the plate is overwhelmed by large slices of onion. This seems odd from both an aesthetic and taste standpoint. The onions are not additive to the dish and seem like a way to take up space on a large plate with a small portion of beef. I love Mott Street and am rooting for them, but this slide in quality/value is noteworthy.

    The burger was messy but absolutely worth it ! It was absolutely delicious. One of the best burgers I’ve had (first was from lockdown but it’s closed now) Bloody Mary was good too but I think over priced for the small glass we received

    The food: astounding We shared the infamous brunch burger and the amazing kalbi steak and eggs I cannot recommend these enough However we came in at 1:30 for a reservation and felt extremely rushed, as if we had to get our order in that second. I understand the kitchen closes at 2, but there was a reservation time at 1:45 as well. A little more patience and grace from our waiter would have brought this experience to a 10/10

    Haven’t been here in years and was very excited to come back. Food was very good and served was very nice. However it was an extremely rushed experience and basically felt like a fast food experience. We ordered 4-5 items and got everything and paid our check within 45 minutes. My husband didn’t even get a chance to order a second beer. Our total time there was 1 hour. That doesn’t feel like a dinner experience out, especially for $130.

    Burger is sooooo good but they only sell it at the bar past 7pm. Wings were 7/10, fried rice (not the crab friend rice but the regular one) was disappointing 4/10. Great vibes and great service, bartenders were awesome

    Service was friendly and professional. However, we found the food vastly overrated. The fire chicken ruined the whole experience. It is so ridiculously spicy it is uneatable and prevents you from tasting anything afterward. The mussel soup was quite tasteless and the mussels so overcooked they shrinked to almost nothing. Very disappointed overall.

    Food was good - The Brussel sprouts, imperial roll, skirt steak Kalbi, and garlic shrimp and noodles were quite good. The papaya salad was a bit disappointing. The service was excellent. I was expecting a bit of a different atmosphere from and Asian fusion restaurant - this was more of a bustling diner feel. That's not necessarily a negative for everyone, just not what I am usually looking for when dining out.

    We had heard about Mott St for years. Can't believe we waited so long! Known for their burgers, which were outstanding, the various other dishes we ordered were even better. Though we had some leftovers, we actually ordered other dishes to take home. We will be back soon!

    Incredible brunch choice! The food was outstanding- we loved the kalbi steak and eggs and the Kbbq Jackfruit Skillet. Our service was a little slow, which was completely understandable given how crowded the restaurant was on a Sunday. Can’t wait to come back here when it’s warm enough to sit on the patio!

    Incredible food, on the pricier side but the portions are big and it feels so worth it. It's a very small restaurant, love the decor and vibe but you will be pretty elbow to elbow with people on a busy night (which every one seems to be). Service was a bit slow, and I would have loved some new plates between shareable dishes, but it was very efficient and friendly. Again, I do think the close quarters negatively affects the wait staff too, but that's not their fault! The food is truly the best part about Mott St; it's incredible, and I want to keep coming back so I can try every single thing on the menu.
