The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

“Noth­ing you don’t need” is the clever dou­ble-neg­a­tive slo­gan at Mod­ern Gen­eral, the new mar­ket-café on Don Cubero Al­ley. It’s brought to us by Erin Wade, owner of Vinai­grette. The shop sells house­hold goods, gar­den­ing tools, and other sun­dries, and tucked at the back of the light-filled room is a kitchen prof­fer­ing smooth­ies, juices, tea, cof­fee, sand­wiches, sweet treats, and good things in bowls. While I’m not sure $20 gar­den spades and $11 jars of flake sea salt are things all of us need, there’s not much that comes out of the kitchen that you wouldn’t want. Rec­om­mended: av­o­cado toast, “pho-sole” break­fast soup, brothy greens with an egg, strata, kale and quinoa salad, and rasp­berry and apri­cot ko­laches.
