‘Tiny Bites’ of News From Morso

FALL EVENT AND HOLIDAY PARTY RESERVATIONS

With the fall season of events upon us and holiday parties just around the corner, it is not too early to make your reservations at Morso. In fact, looking ahead to December, prime dates for parties in our private dining alcove are already being booked.

We can cater parties both large and small for day or evening in our semi-private and private dining areas as well as in the full restaurant and on our Garden Terrace. Our lounge/private dining alcove seats 18; our semi-private dining area seats 30; the Garden Terrace seats 40 and the entire restaurant can seat 122.  To discuss your plans, contact Ezma at the restaurant.

While you are thinking about your December plans, don’t forget about events in the more immediate future. Morso will offer special pre-sundown menu selections for Yom Kippur on September 13, and on September 16, Chef Pino will launch our fall program of cooking demonstrations.
