Chef Brian Malarkey reviews Duckaroni at Urban Solace
$$ | Breakfast/Brunch, | Modern, | American
North Park
1 Review
"Chef Matt Gordon is the king of neighborhood restaurants, and he’s lucky I haven’t plagiarized and made his duckaroni yet! Served with enticing, aromatic scents of garlic and scallions, laced with blue cheese, and loaded with duck confit, this indulgent pasta always has me flying back to North Park for more."
Chef Chad White reviews Pulled chicken & buttermilk dumplings at Urban Solace

"Truth be told, I'm only allowed to eat this with chef Katherine Humphus, but it's okay because I think she breaks the rule too, as the same applies to her. It reminds me of my grandma's chicken and dumplings. It's insane."
Chef Hanis Cavin reviews Braised Paso grass-fed beef cheeks at Urban Solace

"Chef Matt takes comfort food to a new level, and this dish satisfies like no other. I think a lot of the magic starts with how he sources his meat and the fact that he takes the time to prepare it correctly."
