A revamped menu from Urbana's new chef, Ethan McKee, will debut at the Kimpton restaurant tomorrow. The scoop: it's healthier (for the most part), Mediterranean-influenced and focused on small plates. There are new vegetable-centric dishes, like crispy squash blossoms, as well as homemade pastas like lobster ravioli and sustainable sourced seafood such as pan-roasted monkfish. Carnivores can try lamb chops with cumin yogurt or roasted duck breast with cherry gastrique, as well as some larger sharable plates such as a big lamb shank for $36.
On the less healthy side of the equation: brunch now has doughnuts, in the form of Italian bomboloni, among other additions. There are seven different types of Bloody Marys for $6 each during brunch hours. The restaurant's affordable happy hour remains in place.
