After almost nine months the Urbanite Bistro calls it quits. Always sad to see an indie restaurant go. Today I recieved an email from chef Frank Imabarlina saying that tonight, Saturday May 8 is the last night the Urbanite will be open. "I have been working tirelessly for the past week trying to do whatever I could to keep the Urbanite operating, right down to last night and this afternoon trying to alter this outcome," writes Barlina.
Shame. I liked how the restaurant took a chance on downtown and stocked great craft brews. Hopefully we'll see the Urbanite team again soon.
