Swanky Vegan Comfort Food in Brooklyn, Through a Jewish Lens

Here’s renowned vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz on Modern Love, her new Williamsburg, Brooklyn, eatery:

“Chinese food, Indian food, Jewish food obviously. Our menu has some Russian influences, some French-Canadian influences, but it’s really all through the lens of a Brooklyn Jew,” she tells the Village Voice.

The resto’s website describes the cuisine as “swanky vegan comfort food.”

Modern Love’s first location opened in Omaha — that’s not a typo — in 2014.
