Urban Kitchen: Memorial’s New Neighborhood Restaurant



Finding a great restaurant that is both casual and chic is far from an easy task. However, this is exactly what Barry and Dinorah Barnes set out to do, and when their search proved fruitless, they decided to create their own.

As a result, Urban Kitchen opened its doors. Located at 14008 Memorial Drive at the corner of Memorial and Kirkwood, just blocks away from the Energy Corridor, Urban Kitchen offers an eclectic menu that combines the delight of comfort food with a trendy version of contemporary American cuisine.

Whether it’s a business lunch or a social night out, Urban Kitchen provides the perfect ambience for every occasion with a welcoming interior and a peaceful terrace. And whether craving an American classic or something a little more adventurous, patrons will find the perfect meal served by a friendly staff. With an outdoor smoker greeting diners and the ever-changing “Catch of the Day,” diners should never expect the same specials twice.

The owners of Urban Kitchen set out with a mission. They wanted to establish a neighborhood restaurant that would both charm and surprise local residents. However, it is easy to see how word of mouth will soon attract diners from across the city.

Next time you’re on the lookout for a unique meal, just remember that Urban Kitchen is right around the corner. For more information, call 281-531-7550 or visit www.urbankitchenhouston.com.
