It might be hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a little over a week away, and that before we know it, 2020 will be over. This year has been one that many will remember for quite some time, and as you make your holiday plans for the winter, you might be thinking about what you want to do to celebrate the last two months of 2020.

At moto-i in Minneapolis, we would love it if you would make our Japanese restaurant part of your holiday plans, whether that means stopping by for lunch before you leave town, or bringing guests here for dinner when they come to visit you this holiday season. You can even order takeout or delivery and enjoy our delicious Japanese food at home!

Staying Home

This year has been challenging in many ways, and perhaps you’re planning on staying home and enjoying the holidays by yourself this year. You’re not going to do much other than relax, watch some of your favorite holiday movies, and enjoy good food and drink. If you decide that you want something from our menu, you can order online and pick up your food in as little as 20 minutes. You can even order a bottle of our house-brewed sake or a cocktail kit and save yourself a trip to the liquor store!

If you live with a roommate, or you’re married with kids, and everyone is staying home for the holidays, we can make sure you don’t have to cook every single night. We’re open for in-person dining, and you can make a reservation for your entire group.

Family Coming to Visit

If you have family coming to visit you in Minneapolis this holiday season, you might be trying to think of things you can do while they’re in town. Shopping and eating are always two very popular holiday traditions, but you’ll have to check to see which stores and restaurants are open before you hit the town. The last thing you want is to make plans to go to a certain place, only to find it isn’t open. At moto-i, we’re open and dedicated to creating a safe and healthy environment for you and your family this holiday season, and we’ll be here to serve you when you come for lunch or dinner.

Keep in mind that no matter where you go in the city this winter, whether it’s moto-i or the Mall of America, face masks will be required. This can be important to tell family members who are visiting from out of state and who may not be used to wearing a mask in public. You can buy masks to give to your family so that everyone is covered, no matter where you go.

A Friendly Holiday

Perhaps you have friends who are staying in the city for the holidays this year, and you want to get together to celebrate the season. Everyone feels safe gathering for a night out or for dinner on the weekends, and while the weather may not cooperate, you can still have a great time with friends you haven’t seen in some time. You can also each order delivery or takeout from your favorite restaurants (including moto-i) and have a video call with all of your friends. You can send each other gifts and watch as each person opens their presents!

Give the Gift of Japanese Cuisine

If you know someone who absolutely loves Japanese food, and you’re not sure what to get them for a gift this year, why not purchase a moto-i gift card? You can buy gift cards in any amount online, add a personal message, and we’ll send the gift right to their email. You can even schedule the gift delivery to arrive on a specific date! The recipient can use the gift card whenever they want, and they’ll think of you every time they’re enjoying a bowl of classic ramen or our Japanese fried chicken.

Visit Us This Holiday Season

No matter what your plans are for this year’s holiday season, we hope that you’ll visit our Japanese restaurant for amazing food and delicious drinks. We’d love to see you before the year is over, and we’ll gladly help you celebrate the holidays however you see fit.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
