Looking for a fresh and earth-friendly lunch while on Burlingame Ave? Urban Bistro has you covered. This outpost of the San Francisco Soup Company offers dishes made with organic locally sourced ingredients to tempt diners aged two to two hundred. The dining area is clean and modern, but the open-air patio is where it’s really at, with a cool “living wall” of ferns that at one end. The core of their menu is their soups, which are delicious, fresh, and frequently unique, but the rest of the menu is fleshed out with yummy modern American cuisine that will make your mouth water. Comfort foodies should try the Mac-and-Cheese with bacon and chicken or the turkey meatloaf sandwich, while veggie lovers will drool over their fresh salads. If you’re having trouble making up your mind, try one of their “Make-a-meal” options and pick out your own entrée, soup, salad and side. Soup standouts include the lobster bisque with puff pastry and the divine chicken tikka masala stew, which both kids and adults will go wild for. But what we at Red Tricycle really love are the fresh and healthy options on the kids’ menu. The chicken skewers are organic, the Mac-and-cheese and pizza are homemade with local cheeses, and every kid’s item comes with a side of fresh carrots. Combined with their great “grown-up food,” who could ask for anything more?
