This casual restaurant has something for everyone. I had a delicious salad with wine, while others nearby had pizza, sandwiches, and treats for the kids.

Great neighborhood, informal health-food eatery. Great friendly service. Salads are generous, veggies are always fresh, and protein portions are of a good size and always tasty.

Urban Bistro was a great find! There were so many healthy options as well as gluten/dairy ones. The option of kale-slaw as a side was super too! The service was very quick and it was an all-around wonderful place to have a meal.
