Urban Plates Restaurant Review

: Urban Plates is a champion in the new movement of fast-casual, affordable fare that celebrates local farms and creativity. In this bustling eatery, folks line up for superfood hand-tossed salads, hand-carved entrées and savory sides. Remarkably, this chef-crafted cuisine is priced at $10 or less. Dishes range from wild ono and barbecue turkey meatloaf to portobello and pesto pizzettes and braised beef in red wine sauce. Vegetarian curries, carrot and ginger soup, and kale salads appeal to non-meat eaters, while tempting sides include mac ‘n’ cheese, roasted Brussels sprouts with turkey bacon, and sesame broccolini, to name but a few. Natural sodas, agave lemonade, organic tea and coffees, along with local beers and wine, command the drinks list. Homemade desserts change daily, with sweet seductresses like banana cream pie, mango tarts and vanilla bean cheesecake.
