Urban Cookhouse Restaurant Review

: Partnered with the Homewood Chamber of Commerce, Urban Cookhouse set up a farmers market out front. Owners David and Andrea Snyder offer fresh flavors such as chipotle-braised pork, grilled chicken, smoked turkey, lime-marinated steak and wood-fired shrimp. These flavors come as plates but also can fill sandwiches, wraps and salads alongside locally grown vegetables. With its tangy dressing, broccoli salad is a star side. The kids’ menu includes a gooey grilled peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwich that adults like too. We suggest the BALT---that’s apple wood-smoked bacon, avocado, lettuce and tomato with aïoli. For dessert, get a half-baked cookie in a mini iron skillet topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup, or go for a basket of Millie Ray’s addictive orange rolls. They’re available for take-home, along with other local foods and dinners for four. Complement your meal with the house-made strawberry lemonade, but there’s a rotating list of organically grown wines and some local craft brews as well.
