Time Out says

The ingredients aren't the only fresh thing about Mótto. This quirky restaurant on Madrid Street has a bracingly open-ended take on dining: there is no fixed menu, and which country's cuisine you'll be eating depends on which of a rotating band of chefs is in the kitchen that day. In the past we’ve been served up Sri Lankan, Ethiopian and French (though the lunch menu is centred on Lebanese fare). This freeform approach extends to the pricing: namely, there isn't any, and you pay what you think is fair. That the restaurant is still in business bodes well. Call ahead if you're apprehensive about which contents your tastebuds will be sent to. In fact, call ahead even if you're not: booking is a must.
