Featuring a unique combination of French bistro classics and Italian-influenced pasta dishes, Modavie hits all the right notes. It’s a place where the atmosphere is loud but convivial, and everyone seems to be in a good mood. The service is attentive without being overbearing—you’ll leave feeling well taken care of. There is live jazz every evening in the upstairs lounge (no cover), making this a comfortable place for singles as well as couples and groups. On the menu, steak frites are always excellent, and an entire section of the menu is dedicated to lamb. The lamb mille-feuilles features succulent braised lamb shank and mushrooms tucked between layers of flaky puff pastry—so delicious you may just want to order it again for dessert.
