Mirko Di Giacomantonio
The best food is what reminds me of my childhood, my homeland. In my restaurants I don't only care about offering high quality food, but also about the emotion and joy of being connected with a place and a community.
I have tried to adapt the traditions of Abruzzo and Italy to the local reality, providing an authentic cuisine.
Chef Mirko, a native of a small coastal town called Tortoreto, developed this concept; Tortoreto is located in the region of Abruzzi in Italy. Mirko has been surrounded by food his entire life. He learned to cook by watching his maternal grandmother named Rosa, or as he lovingly refers to as Noni, work tirelessly in the family kitchen. Mirko saw Noni prepare food every day for family and friends. He learned "how to" cook, but more importantly, Noni imparted to him the love that is embodied in freshly prepared food placed in the center of a table. Mirko sums it up best, "When people come to Urban I want them to feel like I felt when I went to my grandmother's house." Enjoy a delicious meal served up with love in an environment filled with enthusiasm, joy and passion.
