As part of their overall mission to give the neighborhood and their customers what they want, the team at Urban Village is excited to release four new menus – brunch, lunch, kids and gluten free – all now available at the Northern Liberties brewery.
The menu launches align with the entire concept of straight from the tank craft brews, and reflect Urban Village’s commitment to serving fresh, seasonally rotating and deliciously unique fare. A new weekly specials section on the menu, which will always highlight a pizza, a sandwich and a small plate, is devoted specifically to this idea and expected to give executive chef, Christopher Davis, room to flex his creative culinary muscles while offering customers what they love.
Brunch at Urban Village
Urban Village has garnered enormous popularity for its naturally fermented, slow-proofing pizza dough, and the new brunch menu naturally incorporates brunch-focused pizzas like the ‘Val’, topped with eggs, Canadian bacon, tomato and hollandaise ($14) and the ‘Raven,’ with eggs, green onion and house kimchi ($13) join eight of the classic red and white offerings all available during brunch hours.
Urban Village further extends their dough mastery to include toasted homemade everything bagels for its salmon lox plate ($13) with cream cheese, pickled egg, caper and onion.
Comfort food fav, cream chip beef, is upgraded with house made pastrami while customizable brunch sandwiches round out the savory brunch additions.
French toasted brioche with whipped ricotta and blackberry preserves will satisfy audiences with a sweet tooth (all $12).
Additionally, two inventive new brunch cocktails grace the menu: a bloody mary made with fresh horseradish and aquavit ($10) and a beermosa made from any of Urban Village’s 12 tank to tap to table beers and freshly squeezed OJ (price varies).
Brunch will be served Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
