Philadelphia, PA - Urban Farmer is a modern steakhouse serving local, sustainable ingredients in a luxurious setting. The restaurant immediately made a bold commitment to serving Philadelphia’s finest farm-fresh ingredients, and has forged relationships with local meat and produce purveyors that inform and influence their menu throughout the year.
In addition, they have whole-heartedly embraced the contemporary DIY movement, butchering farm-raised whole animals on site and crafting everything from house-cured pickles to handmade tallow candles on site. Few other restaurants have achieved such a high level of sustainability and resourcefulness, making Urban Farmer a standard bearer in contemporary luxury dining. They bake every dessert and bread from scratch, including their popular English muffins, and their bar program smartly complements the menu with local offerings, including an all-local list of draft beers and a variety of locally distilled spirits. This marriage of house-made and historic, salvaged and brand new, exemplifies the restaurant’s approach to honoring the tradition of fine dining in a way that feels fresh and contemporary.
