– Scottsdale Dining at Modern Market –
Scottsdale is the newest home to the Modern Market chain of fast-casual restaurants.
Located in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale, across from the Fashion Square Mall, Modern Market is a fun, contemporary space punctuated with bright pops of yellow and other colors. There is ample seating outside and a couple of outdoor areas to enjoy an al fresco meal.
Modern Market is all about delivering fresh, locally-sourced food. You will not find any fried or heavily-processed foods. Instead, most of the items are made from scratch and can satisfy many different diet types and restrictions. But, Modern Market does not scrimp on taste.
Upon entering, you go to the counter to place your order. Once that is done, grab your order “buzzer” and select your table. When it is ready, simply walk back up to the counter to collect your food.
What was interesting was the receipt. For each item you order, you will see the calorie, fat, carbohydrate and protein measurements. On the back, you can read more about Modern Market’s mission, menu and goals.
To start, we ordered a half-portion of the flatbread which came with a dusting of lemon and herbs and Grana Padano cheese. It was delicious.
One of us had the Basil Chicken toasted sandwich on ciabatta. The ciabatta was perfectly toasted and chewy and it came with perfectly cooked chicken, tasty tomatoes, onions, provolone and a basil aioli. There was a large number of side options available and we went with the ginger maple roasted veggies.
The other one had the Fresno Mint Salad. It was fabulous. There were tons of fresh vegetables set off with a hint of torn mint and the heat of the Fresno chilies. We also opted to add chicken and there was a generous, freshly cooked portion served with the salad.
Modern Market was a quick and easy way to get a really tasty and healthy (with flavor!) meal. This is a restaurant we plan to visit many times.
