On my last trip to Omaha, I had dinner at Modern Love, Isa Chandra Moskowitz's new restaurant. It was my second visit, and I ordered way too much food for one person.
First, the Modern Niçoise Salad with charred green beans, olives, chickpea salad + deviled potatoes. So much more than a salad, this is extremely filling and satisfying on its own. And the potatoes are out of this world good.
Then, the Chili and Cinnamon Rolls, lentil and bean chili with roasted squash with a cinnamon roll and coconut sour cream on top. Insanely delicious and beautiful. Everything I've ordered at Modern Love has looked amazing...presentation is clearly just as important as flavor. And also great as breakfast the next morning.
I couldn't leave without dessert, but I was so full, so I ordered my pie to go. Since I couldn't take the a la mode to go, they served it to me before I left in this adorable ice cream dish.
And the pièce de résistance ...a selfie with Isa herself.
