Urban Tavern Restaurant Review

: URBAN TAVERN IS CURRENTLY UNDER RENOVATION AND HAS RELOCATED TEMPORARILY TO THE 46TH FLOOR OF HILTON SAN FRANCISCO UNION SQUARE. This San Francisco approach to a gastropub is just off bustling Union Square anchoring the Hilton hotel with a street-side location. Décor combines concrete floors and a low marble bar with an extensive use of raw wood, a rough-hewn communal table and an anchor sculpture of a horse. Gastropub offerings run to classics such as fish ‘n’ chips and a potpie made with fish instead of chicken. Cheddar-Serrano biscuits with just the right kick are small bites that appear on both the dinner and lounge menus. While the aforementioned gastropub ethos is prevalent, the star dish among mains is the butter-rich mushroom risotto. Desserts are slightly more tempting in description than execution, with “PB Cup” with sea salt brittle and caramel gelato coming off less decadent in delivery. Try the "beeramisu" for a spongy take on the traditional sweet, this time topped with gingersnaps and candied ginger. Five hours of validated parking make a good complement for Union Square shopping.
