Now that the New Year is upon us, you may be looking down that list of resolutions you made and wondering if you’ll be able to accomplish them all. At Moto-i in Minneapolis, we always look forward to the New Year and all that it can bring, and we hope that you’re as excited about the next 12 months as we are. At our Japanese restaurant, you can find delicious cuisine and amazing sake that’s brewed on-site, and you can enjoy some downtime between pursuing your resolutions, whether that’s going to the gym more or trying a new hobby.

Try New Things

For many people, the New Year is a great time to try new things. That might mean skydiving for some, while for others it means picking up the guitar for the first time. If one of your resolutions is to try new types of food, then Japanese cuisine is a great place to start. You can find something on our menu for every palate, and our staff will gladly recommend a dish based on your preferences. If you’ve never had sake, then come to our restaurant today and try some from the one of the finest sake breweries in the States.

Travel More

Last year may have been a busy one for you, but not in a good way. Work may have bogged you down, and you didn’t have as many free weekends as you would’ve liked. This resulted in less travel than you wanted, but that’s going to change this year. You’re planning to see more of the country, and you might even be planning to travel overseas. If you’re going to visit a particular country, then it can be good to sample their food and learn about their customs before you go. The Twin Cities has a great selection of world-class restaurants, and at Moto-i, we’d love to be your choice for traditional Japanese fare before you head to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Reconnect With Old Friends

Instead of trying new things or experiencing new cultures, your resolution this year might be to reconnect with old friends. You may have lost touch over the years, and besides a holiday card each year, you don’t hear much from your high school friends or college roommate. If you both live in the Minneapolis area, then why not invite them out for lunch or dinner? A public place like a mall or restaurant can be a great spot to reconnect, and neither of you will have to feel the pressure of cleaning up the house or getting everything ready for a visit. Who knows? The LynLake neighborhood might be the perfect halfway point for both of you!

As you look at your list of resolutions, it’s important to keep in mind that these are things that are supposed to make life more enjoyable, not burden you with more responsibility. No matter what your resolutions are this year, we hope that you’ll find the time to visit our Japanese restaurant some time in the next 12 months.

We look forward to serving you!
