Urbana Snags a New Chef
Let’s hope. Bollinger takes over from chef Claudio Urciuoli, who was at the restaurant about six months. Opening chef Richard Brandenburg stayed on less than a year.
Bollinger will debut his new Mediterranean-focused menu in early October. It’ll include house-made charcuterie; mussels with chorizo, roasted peppers, and cream; roasted scallops with oxtail-and-lentil ragoût, and a burger gone Italian, wrapped in prosciutto and topped with fontina cheese.
