The Modern Cafe's legendary pot roast

The beloved Northeast pot roast and comfort food kitchen broke the news to the Star Tribune last Friday that longtime owners Jim and Patty Grell would be selling to an unknown entity.

Grell's comments to Rick Nelson were nebulous in terms of what would happen to the concept: "Grell wasn't revealing the new ownership's plans for the restaurant," leaving it to interpretation whether straightforward breakfast, pot roast, and meatloaf would still be on the menu.

However, their website currently reads: "Thank you. This is the end."

Whatever happens, the Grells' final day at the helm will be March 14t, so there is still a little time to get your meat.
