Modmarket is Boulder's newest green restaurant
I stopped in yesterday during a test run and found a minimalist space sprouting wheat grass along the back wall, a full house of servers, salad tossers and flatbread assemblers, and Boulder's greenest patrons ogling over the heaps of weeds that comprise a small salad. Chef and managing partner Anthony Pigliacampo explained that Troy Guard, owner and exec chef of TAG, consulted on the menu. "All of the really great stuff on the menu is Troy's doing; the rest is mine," he joked.
Like the space, it's an unfussy menu devoted to salads with names like "Cobbish," "Mongolian" and "Fajita" and flatbreads, all of which are made on whole grain dough and cooked in a stone hearth oven. But my favorite thing about Modmarket isn't the salads or flatbreads, but the sodas, all of which are Boylan's or the market's own sparkling waters. I'll drink to that.
