Urban Flats Flatbread & Wine Co., the Florida-based chain of restaurant-wine bars, is coming to The Gulch. Local restaurant veteran Henry Hillenmeyer is bringing the brand to the Icon, the $100 million, 22-story mixed-use project at the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Division. The restaurant is slated to open by the end of the year.
With a menu of whole-wheat gourmet flatbreads baked in a stone-hearth oven, Urban Flats will serve lunch and dinner and feature live music performances.
The 4-year-old Urban Flats company operates about a dozen stores, mostly in Florida. The menu lists appetizers, salads, sandwiches and small plates such as lamb lollipops, citrus-parmesan-crusted salmon and crab cakes. The signature flatbreads—a twist on the theme of pizzas—includes combinations such as turkey, pear and brie; fig and prosciutto; and steak and Portobello.
