MODA Urban Dining moves on

While the owners head back to their home in Bermuda, MODA's location makes room for a new restaurant



There's no place like home, that is if you really love your home like Matthew and Melissa Pridham do. The owners of downtown Halifax's MODA Urban Dining (1518 Dresden Row)—which opened its doors in 2010— originally met in Bermuda, the home they're closing the restaurant to return to.

"Halifax was never meant to be our longterm plan, we knew we always wanted to go home to family," says Melissa, adding that maybe now they'll have time for their honeymoon. "We've been going full speed for the past five years, so we hope to take a little bit of a break."

MODA will close its doors for good after serving up final meals on July 30, making room for the building's next tenant to renovate. Pridham says an upscale Asian restaurant is set to open in the location this fall.
