City Pages' Description

The pot roast at the Modern is the stuff of legend. The fries and breakfasts are tops, too. And the fact that you can get beer and wine? That's the sprinkles on top of the cherry on top of the whipped cream on top of the sundae. Is the Modern the absolute perfect definitive postmodern diner? Heck, yes, and stay out of our booth.

Tips from foursquare

  • Heavy Table on 03/07/10

    Pork cabbage pancakes are crisp, soulful and awesome - good buy at $9, too.

  • Heavy Table on 01/02/11

    The vegetarian Pumpkin Soup ($14) with mole, sopes, and wild mushrooms is unique and addictively savory.

    Try the Famous Modern Hash. The hash is a morning knockout: A duo of perfectly poached eggs on that holy pot roast, dressed with potatoes, peppers, and herbs.

    This my go-to neighborhood spot. Super wholesome stick to your ribs comfort food. Go with the pot roast or meet loaf if it's your first time. Everything is good though.

    The meatloaf is a slice of cozy bliss.
