Daily Menu Additions & Butcher’s Cuts

Guests of Urban Farmer can never complain about a boring menu! Not only does our menu change seasonally to feature fresh, local products but we also feature daily menu additions and butcher’s cuts. The menu additions and butcher’s cuts allow the kitchen to utilize the whole animal to result in less waste. It also allows for our chefs to showcase their creativity on a daily basis! If you stopped in over during the Christmas week, you may have seen a PB&J Duck on the menu additions card; which was inspired by the classic childhood peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! This seared duck features fermented chestnut pesto (the “peanut butter”), drunken cherry gastrique (the “jelly”), finished with a sage crumble (the “bread”), and garnished with micro greens. Be sure to check the daily card each time you stop in for lunch or dinner to see what creative dishes our chefs have developed!

The Flying Stag

 

Although we’ve been barrel-aging cocktails for some time now, our bartenders have really started to understand the nuances of the craft this year. They’ve developed partnerships with many local distillers to create delightful twists on classic cocktails that mellow and ripen with the right amount of aging. One such collaboration is with the gin experts over at House Spirits. They provided us with a barrel and some of their award winning Aviation Gin, which Tyler combined with Hennessy and Cocchi Americano. It was in the barrel for twenty-one days before we tapped it. The result is an earthy, slightly sweet but entirely quaffable beverage that only improves as it breathes. We’ll definitely be making this one again!

 

National Fried Chicken Day at Urban Farmer

Urban Farmer Chicken & Waffles

Over the past weekend, in our post BBQ, beer and illegal fireworks haze we celebrated another American holiday: National Fried Chicken Day. Though it may have less patriotic roots, July 6th is a date well celebrated in the waning phases of Independence Day. In exalting a dish that was brought by immigrants and perfected by the South, we are continuing to honor the similarities that make us uniquely American. Here at the Farm, we were delighted to serve variations on the classic fried chicken all day.

For brunch we used buttermilk batter to create a benedict that that provided a nice salty crunch to counteract the tangy béarnaise.

For lunch and dinner Chef de Cuisine, Chris Starkus, played with the idea of chicken and waffles by utilizing fresh, local blueberries and a homemade truffle honey.
