Urban Plates Restaurant Review

: This San Diego area-based, grown-up cafeteria concept brings its farm-to-table offerings up the coast to Orange County. Guests can select from contemporary lunch and dinner items that emphasize seasonality and purveyor relationships. Expect hand-carved sandwiches and health-conscious salads, and more substantial fare such as braised beef and mushrooms in red wine sauce or barbecued turkey meatloaf.
