In the United States, there are so many foods with high calories such as burgers, stakes and cupcakes which induce you. While they definitely taste great, currently more and more people care about their health and tend to avoid those kind of junk foods.

Hence today, for those people prefer healthy foods, I recommend Urban Plates, which serves high quality and body friendly foods.

Even people who are on diet can enjoy their meals without being to much sensitive.

Recommended Menus

Firstly, Braised Beef & Mushrooms is something you should check. It is a bit like soup and has very tender beef inside. The red wine sauce makes it very rich and the mushrooms and vegges have thick flavor as well.

From the plate menu, grilled grass fed steak is recommended. The steak is served medium rare and very fresh. For the side you may choose 2, I recommend you to choose Brussels sprouts for one of them. It comes with bacon and onions and everyone loves it.

Turkey meatloaf is popular as well. The open kitchen and cafeteria style help you to view all menus, so take your time and find your favorite one.

Beverages and Desserts

Before you pay, do not miss checking beverages and desserts.

As beverages, there are local craft beers, wines and organic sodas. And what I recommend is Kombucha on tap. Which is great choice to be paired with healthy meals and cleans your body from inside.

About the dessert, pastry chefs prepare more than 20 kinds of desserts everyday and their signature dessert, mango tart, is a must to check.

The flavor of fresh mango is beautiful and the rum cream is so rich as well.

Other than that, they have a lot of lovely cakes and gluten-free cookies to try.
