We enjoyed our lunch food was well done and service was good. We will be back. One can tell the chef was professionally trained.

Craft Urban sources from local producers and our menu is a seasonal menu making weekly & monthly tweaks. Mimicking our food menu - our libations are just as colorful, unique and palatable. For dessert, we have our very own pound cake served with berries and cream and don't forget about our chocolate mousse, both equally delicious. We also accommodate vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.
