The dining style will be casual, meant to be enjoyed with many small plates leading to the robata grilled entrée experience of flavors. Complementing the dining experience will be an extensive drink menu featuring handmade cocktails, asian beers, and saké along with more traditional wines and spirits. And last, but not least, dessert at Modita will be an experience meant to delight the palate.
Leading the culinary team at Modita is Executive Chef Braedon Kellner who developed the menu working with the CRG Culinary Team led by Executive Chef Carl Chambers. The team takes the pantry of Asian ingredients and artfully combines them with fresh locally-sourced ingredients resulting in dishes that are unique and exploding with flavor.
