City Pages' Description

Urban Eatery is a new concept from Kaskaid Hospitality, the team behind the Crave chain as well as the newly opened Sopranos, that softens its sports bar vibe--a large, square bar with multiple overhead televisions anchors the main room--with weathered wood on the walls, antique-style light fixtures, and a spacious patio. Chef Jim Kyndberg, chef-owner of the former foodie destination Bayport Cookery, designed Urban Eatery's menu to focus on bar food with an international bent. The emphasis is on quality ingredients, including naturally raised meats from regional farms, and on updating classic foods with a chef's flourish. So instead of the ubiquitous, American mini-burger, Urban Eatery serves an Asian-style slider, in which a chewy, sweet bun folds over a spicy patty made with Fischer Farms pork, with several types of house-made pickle. Actually, Urban Eatery offers six styles of burgers, and the lamb-based one is a standout: a spicy, succulent patty is crisscrossed with grill marks and slathered in pico de gallo and goat cheese, whose funkiness enhances the rich, gamey flavor of the meat. But if you plan on hitting the Calhoun Beach Club gym later, you may want to go with the beat, mozzarella, and arugula salad.

    I recently discovered this jem! The food was outstanding! They have the best cheese curds, even better than the state fair, which is saying a lot!I had the grilled steak urban, and the steak was cooked perfectly! The service was very attentive, but not overwhelming. Free valet is always a bonus!
