Modern Brine, the raw oyster bar currently located inside Intermezzo, is expanding over the summer!⠀

The current plan is to move into the upstairs space in Baum Avenue Market next door to Intermezzo. This expansion is going to turn Modern Brine into a specialty raw bar and lounge. Think intimate, upscale, and approachable.

For food, Modern Brine will feature the Omakase Oyster-Focused Raw Bar as well as a full table service menu. To reflect the name Modern Brine, they will be incorporating fermentation into the menu, such as house-made misos, garums and lacto-fermented fruits and vegetables.

The table service menu will have crudo dishes, ceviche, and even a couple of cooked meat dishes. And, who could forget dessert?

The goal is to have the expansion ready and open in the Fall. Until then, check out a casual version of the table service at their current location inside Intermezzo. The temporary menu is a little more experimental and rotates frequently. Right now, you can try the octopus, salmon ceviche, sea urchin, Asian street tacos, and lemon vanilla custard.

Go try out the temporary menu and let us know what you think!
