Udi’s is the perfect addition to this neighborhood and as part of the Tattered Cover complex. Enter to a fabulous looking space with a huge focal bar that is stunning. The back with the bottle display, great lights and super woods set the scene in this area. Move into the dining room with great booths and walnut tables, awesome reclaimed maple on the walls, oak on the floor, big windows, shades of brown and green upholstery and on the walls, and a huge open kitchen here. Watch the chefs as they turn out some totally appealing, delicious, and exciting food with great thought put into every preparation. Little dishes bring teaziki, hummus, falafel, olives, eggplant babaganoush, and caponata. There are flatbreads for starters as well. The appetizers rock: mac and cheese, lamb kabob, blue crab, Israeli meatballs, and the best Greek salad ever. It is a must have and must go to have. The kale gratin, pear or beet salads are pretty dam great and the matzo ball soup is another not to miss item. For entrees the range of choices starts with mango chicken, Cobb or Peanut chicken salads, and then yummy sandwiches. French dip, salmon, burger, and falafel burger come on Udi’s breads, rolls, or gluten free. Jerusalem chicken with 21 spices is the best rendition of this bird ever, housemade pasta Bolognese, papardelle with mushrooms, and Lebanese rice and lentils please vegetarians as well as meat lovers. Chicken schnitzel, short ribs, lamb shank, and salmon each come with exciting accompaniments. And then the pizza which is a signature here in the special ovens. Too many to name, but you will find a favorite in minutes. There is a super cocktail and fresh juice menu, wines by half and full glass along with bottle, and beer to complement your meal. Desserts are decadent and range from a vegan carrot cake to New York cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake and challah coconut bread pudding.
