Omaha, Neb. – To accommodate more fans of its swanky vegan comfort food, locally-owned Modern Love is moving to Midtown Crossing.
“The new location will offer everyone what they've been wanting: more seats. We can't wait to have enough space and parking to feed everyone,” says Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Modern Love chef and owner.
Moskowitz says the name Modern Love is “all about our food – classic comfort foods, made with love and a modern twist. We use the freshest ingredients, sourced as locally as possible, to create the foods our customers crave. It's a vegan restaurant, but it's a restaurant for everyone.”
Modern Love will be located at 3157 Farnam Street, in the space formerly occupied by Chicago Dawg House. Chicago Dawg house owner Kelly Keegan says he wanted to focus on building Omaha’s burgeoning food truck scene.
Moskowitz and GM/Partner James Walmsley are thrilled to be moving in and anticipate a mid-summer opening.
“We love the central location, the walkability and we love our corner space – two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows looking right out onto the greenery. The setting is so spacious and relaxing,” Moskowitz says.
The Modern Love announcement completes a trifecta of new openings (Café Costa) and forthcoming arrivals (Culprit Café) in Midtown Crossing.
“Modern Love is another unique addition to our expanding food scene here in midtown and a beautiful complement to our Farnam Street retail offerings,” says Molly Skold, Midtown Crossing’s Vice President of Marketing and Communications.
Modern Love’s original location on south 50th Street will be closing.
