The Moto Recipe

Conceived to transform the café racer zeitgeist to the appeal of the freewheeling Leucadian spirit. We take the too often mass manufactured sandwich and strip it of its commoditized parts. As deemed appropriate of our somewhat bohemian nature…we are driven to use premium local ingredients to create globally inspired, closed and open faced sandwiches of maximum flavor and minimalist design.

Stripped of the overt need for superfluous bells and whistles, we are fastidiously committed to source local ingredients from trusted community partners to create delicious sandwiches and prepared deli fare in a café culture environment unbounded by our free wheeling ideals and ambitions.

CULINARY PHILOSOPHY


Our sandwiches are not engineered with over powering condiments, cheap chemical additives, or assembled to be anything more overtly garish than the sum of its parts. If singular ingredients don’t shine on their own, they have no chance of performing any better when layered together. Tried and true classic measures are taken. Grilling, poaching, smoking, roasting are merely techniques to maximize flavors already present in the product itself. If the results outperform those made by others, it’s only because the raw components were carefully calibrated in the first place.

CULTURE


We work together to create experiences that fulfill our needs and those of our guests. We value the time allowed to be creative knowing that what we produce is best when made by hand and collaboratively with our team members and community. Our culture succeeds in building something bigger than itself when we never forget the simple pleasures that make up the recipe for our success.
