We visited Urban Table during KC Restaurant Week, a weeklong restaurant exhibition where restaurants offer a prix fixe menu with part of the proceeds going to various charities in KC. Urban Table offered one of the more extensive prix fixe menus, so we chose to visit them.
I loved the rustic burlap and metal décor.
The restaurant was extremely dark, but I tried to get the best pictures I could.
For our shared starter, we picked the trio of spreads with toasted bread, herb goat cheese, hummus and arugula pesto. The goat cheese and hummus were delicious, but the pesto had that arugula bitterness.
For the soup/salad choice, we both chose the potato soup. I would describe it as almost a bacon soup but it was superb.
I chose the chicken and dumplings for my entrée
and the husband went with the hanger steak and mashed potatoes.
he enjoyed his main course, but I found the chicken a little flavorless and dry. The mushroom gnocchi was delicious, which surprised this mushroom hater.
We ended with the bourbon bread pudding. I practically liked the caramel off the plate.
It wasn’t the best local place we tried, but it was definitely good enough to try again.
