Restaurant talk: Urban Acres six days a week, Smoke bacon

UA Chef David Rodriguez

First the libraries and rec centers. Now this. Urban Acres is open six days a week. The grocery and cafe hired a new chef, David Rodriguez, and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday-Sunday starting this week. Rodriguez’s revolving menu includes the “pig and fig” sandwich, homemade chorizo tacos, pastured chicken salad and organic pizza. The new hours are 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m Friday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-5 p.m.  Sunday.

Smoke wants you to bring home the thick-cut pork belly. The restaurant’s house-cured bacon is now available fore takeout at $10 a pound, offered ready-to-gift in butcher paper stamped with the Smoke logo. Call 214.393.4141 or stop in to order.
