All the seafood at Modern Ocean is delivered to this kitchen daily “by the best suppliers and only the absolute freshest, exceptional quality fish and shellfish are to be selected.”

Modern Ocean uses line-caught, trap caught, or sustainably farmed seafood from Canada.

The menu here features eats like a chilled shellfish and raw bar, caviar, soups, salads, and of course, surf and turf.

Modern Ocean serves up lunch and dinner along with an awesome wine list and dessert selection.

This spot opens today, be sure to stop by and get in on the goods when that seafood craving hits.
