Although I live in the heart of Dallas (Oak Cliff represent!) I work in Coppell.
Yes, my commute is horrific thank you for asking.
On my drive home through Irving, I pass the cutest restaurant called Modern Market. After driving by it about a 100 times, last Friday, in an effort to wait for the traffic to die down, I decided to grab an early dinner there with my fiancé. Let me tell you, this place was so darn precious.
Lined with pops of yellow, greenery and marble, it was an instagram foodie's dream.
The menu is filled with entrees containing simple ingredients purchased from farmers, ranchers and suppliers. Happy and healthy food is their motto, but in my opinion, taste was not sacrificed in the least. Everything is made from scratch, even the dressings and pizza dough!
You order from the front counter and are given a buzzer for when your food is ready. The menu is vast, ranging from pizza to sandwiches to colorful fresh salads. Since it was our first time there, we ordered several things to share. I know I need to go back because I had "Did Not Buyers Remorse" when I saw the mac and cheese at another table. I was kicking myself for not ordering it.
Oh, and did I mention their wine on tap (YAS🙌TO WINE ON TAP!) was only $2!!!
TWO DOLL HAIRS! YES, PLEASE!
I had a glass of vino while my fiancé had a Deep Ellum IPA while we waited for our buzzer to be called!
When our meal was ready, I had to make a couple of trips to the counter.
WE ORDERED A LOT!
HOT HONEY PIZZA
Creminelli salami piccante | goat cheese | arugula | organic red sauce | mikes hot honey

Seeing as pizza is my boyfriend, the hot honey pizza was hands down my favorite. It had a little kick to it but nothing over powering. I found myself going back for slice after slice it was so good.
