Urban Eatery offers a warm & comfortable dining experience overlooking the beautiful Lake Calhoun. Urban Eatery's menu is approachable with ingredients that are " Fresh & Local". We've taken traditional favorites & added a twist, like Smoked Duck Nachos, Local Greens Salad. Our Lamb Burgers are AMAZING. <br /><br />January 2014 Open Table Diner' Choice Award<br /><br /><br><br><br />FREE VALET EVERY NIGHT @ 5 PM.<br /><br><br><br />HAPPY HOUR <br /><br><br><br />SUN-THURS 4:30-6:30 PM, LATE NIGHT 9:30-CLOSE<br /><br>FRI-SAT 4:30-6:30 PM, LATE NIGHT 10:30-CLOSE

CRAVE delivers on one simple thing: Fresh and innovative cuisine along with an impeccable wine selection brought to life in a chic, casual, and vibrant atmosphere. The menu evokes the tastes of the new American palate – featuring wood-oven pizzas, roasted meats, sushi, pastas and salads that are seasonally re-mastered utilizing the freshest ingredients. A grand sushi bar extends the dining experience appealing to both traditional sushi lovers and adventurous epicureans alike.

There’s really only one place for authentic Chinese and Thai–and that’s Big Bowl. It all begins with the highest quality ingredients–naturally raised chicken and beef, heirloom pork, sustainable seafood and produce grown locally. Because Big Bowl believes that the best food is made from scratch, you can taste big, bold layers of flavors in every dish, from the curries right down to the dipping sauces.<br /><br />Everyone raves about the pad Thai, our spicy dishes that are truly hot, and our create-your-own stir-fry–and for good reason. Every element adds up to big taste and takes our food to another level, be it a fresh squeeze of lime, fragrant herbs or the seared Thai chilies.<br /><br />Big Bowl is so big on authentic flavors that even the ginger ale is made with fresh ginger root–from scratch, of course.
