Modis Remains One of Breck’s Best

Happy hour at this Main Street restaurant more than satisfies.

Modis-signModis-signModis-sign025Since it opened, Modis in Breckenridge has been place that  serves several functions: local hangout with a great bar with two daily happy hours, a smoker in place for house-smoked specialties, fine-dining restaurant upstairs and in the warm months, a dynamite deck for eating, imbibing and hanging out. I hadn’t been there for several years — not since Justin and Teryn Guadagnoli bought it in the fall of 2013.

The bar is better than ever, with a robust wine list, a big selection of craft beers, innovative cocktails and a continuation of the vibrant menu selections for which it was always known. Four of us were strolling Main Street when the “happy hour” sign caught my eye. We went in for drinks and ended up making dinner from the excellent happy hour food selection.

The soup of the day -- thick and filling -- though I didn't order it and can't recall the flavor.
