Modern’s menu “offers diners creative ways to enjoy their meals, including five to seven-course tasting menus, available wine pairings and custom dining options,” according to the release.

The contemporary American menu puts heavy emphasis on fresh seafood and regionally grown, seasonal produce, including items like wild Scottish salmon to traditional butter-poached Maine lobster to sous vide pork belly.

Modern is still hiring servers, soux chef and line cooks with fine dining experience, according to the restaurant’s website. Interested parties should email resumes to info@modernbuckhead.com
