C’est La Vie
A year of positive reviews wasn’t enough to keep Mode de Vie from a sudden and untimely closure this week. Opened in late summer of 2018, the establishment at 120 Regency pkwy was lauded for it’s delicately balanced menu, exceptional execution of each dish, and the warmth of both the service and atmosphere. While everyone who crossed the threshold seemed pleased with what they found, the numbers weren’t enough to keep the establishment viable. In a Facebook message posted on Monday, the owners assured customers that while the establishment is immediately and permanently closed, gift cards can be redeemed at the establishment’s sister-restaurant Herbe Sainte

Farewell to Well Seasoned
Well Seasoned, a most appropriately named food truck, has developed a loyal cast of stalkers… er… Food Truck Enthusiasts. These fans were devastated by Monday’s announcement that the owners would soon be wrapping up business. Lunch on November 7th will be the final service for the team, known not only for the thoughtfulness of each dish, but of each interaction. Patrons let up on the heat when the owners stated the impending birth of a child as the reason for the shift in focus. Truly, congratulations from The Reader. You will be missed by many!
