Every aspect of Urban Farmer Philadelphia is thoughtfully tailored to the people who live, work and visit this Northeast city — from the look and feel of the restaurant to the locally-sourced offerings served. Just as Urban Farmer achieved in both Portland and Cleveland, the specific local personality is the driving force behind all creative and culinary details, giving it a style unique to Philadelphia. Urban Farmer’s menu emphasizes sustainable local ingredients, and authentic, straightforward preparations. Our rustic pantry is stocked with house-made, preserved and pickled local produce which offers a homespun counterpoint to the refined ambiance. Our chefs build personal relationships with local farms, ranches and fisheries, bringing a taste of their dedication to the table and reaffirming the direct connection between land and plate. Beverage offerings reflect the variety of Pennsylvania beer selections, cocktails made with local craft spirits and an extensive wine program highlighting regional vineyards. Situated in the heart of Philadelphia, Urban Farmer Philadelphia is the third evolution of the modern farm-to-table concept introduced by Sage Restaurant Group Urban Farmer is committed to sustaining the region we live and eat in.
