13th is an artist destination in North East Minneapolis. You can shop the galleries, see a show, have a meal and a drink on the charming 13th Ave.
The Modern Café is located in a charming nook of Northeast Minneapolis, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Known in the 1940s as Rabatin's Northeast Café, neighborhood guy Jim Grell turned it "modern" in 1994.
Over the years, the Modern Café evolved from blue-collar diner to hip, art-scene café with refined, classic American dishes. The Modern is a retro space with a sense of humor.
Today, under the watchful eye of Chef Phillip Becht, the Modern offers seasonal menus inspired by local, sustainable, and organic ingredients. Quality wines are always on hand at the Modern where the half-price wine craze began (Tuesday nights only).
The owners of the Modern believe in sustainable, living wages, commitment to long-term employment and reinvesting in the Northeast community.
