Modern Market is a farm fresh eatery that started in Boulder, CO. They now have 29 locations around the United States, and their second Austin location is opening TODAY! Woop!
I got to try a sneak preview last night as the restaurant tried their “practice dinner” on some guests. Nate and I went VERY hungry (he had just driven up from a work trip in Houston, and I was coming from a long day of running around town and teaching violin lessons.) We drove over to Westlake to the new location to give it a try!
The idea behind Modern Market is to use simple, whole ingredients, make things from scratch, and provide healthy food that’s also TASTY! Their menu is diverse, so anyone can find something to eat. Whether you’re vegan, paleo, gluten-free, or not on any special diet, you’ll find something delicious.
Before I say anything else, I need to mention that corn and bacon pizza pictured up there. Friends, I don’t say this lightly: it was one of the best pizzas I’ve ever tasted. I’m not usually a fan of pizzas without red sauce, but this one had a creme fraiche that was one of the most flavorful and satisfying pizza toppings I’ve eaten. The crust was perfectly thick and chewy.
Modern Market goes on my list of “quick, healthy eats in Austin.” It’s the perfect little place to meet up with a friend for a lunch date. I didn’t sample any of their breakfast items, but I’ll be back soon to try those!
