Urban Grille, Geneva, IL

Urban Grille Restaurant Review

: Bob and Jeanette DiPasquantonio, who live in the day trip-friendly town of Geneva, are clearly onto something with their ever-packed, casual-upscale burger joint that’s steps from the shopping district. Avocado- and butter-colored walls, flagstone accents and leather furnishings exude a swanky, sophisticated vibe. Start with the shrimp Alyx appetizer (or get it as an entrée); the crunchy breaded crustaceans reside in a pool of hauntingly good citrus cream sauce. Fried pickles with spicy ranch sauce are a good way to go, too, as long as you don’t mind paying about 75-cents a pop. Artisanal burgers --- choose from beef, turkey, organic veggie, salmon or chicken breast --- are topnotch on a chewy white roll with toppings like black bean and corn relish, imported Gruyère, roasted garlic, fried onion strings and a bourbon glaze. Creative sandwiches, salads and wood-grilled pizzas are generally solid, too.
