What do you get when you combine a vintage-style clapboard cottage with urban chic décor, an absolutely delicious dining experience and out-of-this-world friendly service? Urban eat. drink.
A neighborhood newbie, Urban is a welcome addition to our growing foodie scene. And from what we saw during our quick lunch date, it’s no surprise this place is packing folks in for breakfast, lunch, dinner and all hours in between.
From the moment you step foot inside the gorgeously renovated bungalow, you know you’re in for a treat. Bright warmth floods the dining room with light as exposed wood and metal accents lend a trendy, industrial feel to the space. Modern light fixtures appropriately adorned with the unique glow of filament bulbs add to the contemporary feel while infusing a somewhat casual vibe into the design.
But what about the food? It’s just as inspired.
The lunch menu was quaint, but filled with something to suit just about any fancy. After looking over our options for a few minutes and whetting our whistles with a couple of Stubborn-brand craft sodas (they’ve got a cool selection of everything from lemon-berry acai to root beer), we dived right in.
I had the Turkey Club and, my date, a Sam Bass Chopped Salad. Both were temptingly tasty.
The toasted sourdough combined with the classic trio of turkey, thick-sliced bacon and avocado launched my taste buds into aioli overdrive. And wow, the Sam Bass Salad really did taste as delicious as it looked. The balsamic-marinated tomatoes paired with rows of fresh chopped arugula, couscous and grilled corn had us wondering if there was a secret garden out back.
Overall, the ambiance combined with the exceptional culinary experience makes Urban eat. drink. a must-try next time you’re looking for a delicious brunch, lunch or dinner. And while we didn’t have a chance to sip anything from the impressive looking bar, there’s always tomorrow. Happy hour, anyone?
