We are debuting our new dinner menu concept focusing on Italian comfort foods on Tuesday, August 1—just in time for our 6th anniversary. The fresco, rustic fare will pay homage to tradition through simple, nourishing Italian-inspired recipes.
The culinary team has spent months working towards flavorful Italian classics while thoughtfully constructing this new dinner menu. Vice President of Culinary, George Atsangbe, said most of our focus has been on preparing the Italian dishes in their simplest form. “Our new mantra is all about serving fresh, Italian-influenced comfort foods at dinner,” said Chef Atsangbe.
And simple, rustic Italian food is what guests can expect when perusing the menu. A new “Pasta” menu section is comprised entirely of pasta, gnocchi, and risotto, including entrées like Short Rib Ragu Gnocchi, house-made Pappardelle with smoked bacon, cream, and tomatoes, and Cacio e Pepe spaghetti with toasted pepper, basil, and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese all adorn this section.
Moving from the pasta section to the “Secondi” section, we will dish up fresco creations like the Shrimp Oreganata which is baked shrimp with toasted peppers, basil, fresh herbs, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and bucatini.
Diners will also be pleased to find new Italian items alongside some of their Urban Table appetizer favorites in the “Antipasti” section. The popular Artichoke Fritters and Deviled Eggs will remain on the menu, while more new offerings will accompany them such as Chicken or Classic Meatballs, and a Formaggi + Salumi board filled with selections of cured meats and cheeses. The “Bruschetta” section will also remain on the menu but have some new offerings added.
“I am very excited to roll out this new Italian-influenced dinner menu because, to me, Italian food has always been a very familiar and comforting type of cuisine,” said Alan Gaylin, Founder & CEO of Bread & Butter Concepts.
Urban Table will be closed for dinner both Sunday, July 30 and Monday, July 31 after 4pm for staff new menu training.
