“Me N Mo offers a high-quality and affordable dining option for all the young families that live in Society Hill, Queen Village, Bella Vista and Pennsport,” said owner Giancarlo Frusone. “With so many great restaurants close-by, our hope was to add to the culinary scene by bringing a well-done and tightly focused new restaurant to South Street.”

Giancarlo, along with his brother Chef Sandro Frusone, will combine decades of international restaurant experience with new ideas offered by their family members - Milan (Giancarlo's wife), Giana (Giancarlo's daughter) and Ercole (Sandro's son who moved from Italy just this week).

The fusion of old and new worlds will be apparent in the style and vibe of the restaurant, as well as in the food and drink offerings. “Our other restaurants paid tribute to my mom and her family’s cooking. Me N Mo continues that legacy but looks forward as we teach our family’s next generation. It will also be a learning experience for me and my brother too. We’ve had a lesson about ‘The Facebook’ and a young family already took a selfie with us at the pasta-making station. We’re all excited to embark on this new culinary adventure together.”

Milan personally oversaw the design aspects of Me N Mo and created the original custom murals inside the dining room.  The decor fuses together rustic, vintage and modern elements. The warm and inviting vibe features unexpected uses of old-time household equipment (vintage sewing machine, meat grinders, kitchen strainers), re-purposed woods, a diversity of textures, neutral colors and a modern soundtrack.

Don't miss the pasta-making station in the back where you can spy chef hand-making the pasta while you sip your wine.
