Another week, another visit to South Grand. This week, I review Mojo Tapas Restaurant & Bar, which opened a few months ago in the old Erato Wine Bar/Parkside Lounge space at 3117 South Grand Boulevard. Follow me after the jump for a sneak preview of my review.

Owner and chef Eric Erhard has logged time at several area restaurants: Annie Gunn's, Harvest and Boogaloo. The influence of Boogaloo is apparent at Mojo. Here too there are Caribbean and Latin American influences, and here too the dishes are presented as small plates. All jokes about its name aside, the "Garlic Chile Shrimp & Sexy Gritz" are representative of Erhard's method: Tweak a familiar dish with bold flavors. Even garlic lovers might do a double take at the numerous penny-thick slices mixed into the sauce.
Visit the RFT restaurant page late tomorrow afternoon or check back here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
