Urban Farmer is a family of restaurants with locations in Portland, Cleveland and Philadelphia, with its newest addition in Denver. Executive Chef Chris Starkus, inspired by America’s European ancestry, unites ingredients grown on-site with those harvested from closely regarded purveyors to offer rustic brunch, lunch, and dinner preparations with bold, straightforward flavors. The Urban Farmer backdrop is warm and elegant, yet quaint and rustic, visually telling the life-story of the hardworking, country farmer who marries the cosmopolitan art collector.
