Less than a year after it opened to substantial acclaim at Corinth Square, Urban Table’s management has unveiled a series of changes aimed at making the restaurant more welcoming to families with children.
Starting last month, Urban Table began offering a children’s menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It also brought in booster seats and high chairs — kid-friendly fixtures that were absent when the restaurant debuted in August 2011.
General Manager Jeff Petersen said the move comes in response to feedback they’ve heard from patrons over the course of several months.
“We’ve just listened to what people from the neighborhood have been saying,” he said. “We heard that families with kids wanted to come here more, and wanted to make sure we were reaching out to everyone in the market.”
Petersen said he thinks one of the strengths of the concept is that it has appeal to a wide swath of demographic groups.
“When you come in here in the evening, you see people of all ages and all situations in the dining room,” he said. “That was always the intent. We just felt that making these moves would make it more welcoming to families.”
