New Menu: Modern Ocean
The next time you visit Modern Ocean with a group, indulge in the Grand Seafood Platter, which includes three Nova Scotia lobster tails, 12 East Coast oysters, 12 cocktail prawns, marinated PEI mussels, shrimp bruschetta, tuna tataki, fresh citrus and all the fixings. Not into sharing? Our favourite cold tapa was the Southwest Prawns featuring garlic prawns and creamy avocado on a delightfully crispy wonton tostada with a chili-lime vinaigrette. Also worth trying is the cheekily named Steak and Eggs featuring sister restaurant Modern Steak’s famous beef tartare (steak) served with BC’s Northern Divine organic Canadian caviar (eggs). Also, fear not, the sinfully delicious Warm Crab in a Jar is still available on the hot tapas list along with a truly remarkable Red Curry Chowder with monkfish, potato and cilantro in a savory red curry broth.
If you’re on a date, we recommend the Seafood Spaghetti for Two, which features many of the menu’s seafood offerings in one delicious dish including large tiger prawns, bay scallops, Humboldt squid, monkfish, garlic, white wine, Calabrian chili, tomato sugo and fresh basil. A Surf and Turf platter, caviar service and a suite of entrees round out the menu and the wine list is always thoughtful and well paired.
