The Logan, the fancy, new hotel replacing what used to be The Four Seasons, officially opens its doors this Wednesday, December 16, and soon after, its restaurant, Urban Farmer, will open to the public. This will be Sage Restaurant Group's third rendering of its farm-driven steakhouse concept — its predecessors are in Portland, Oregon and Cleveland, Ohio. And while Portland's 9-story atrium dining room is worlds away from its Cleveland's farmhouse counterpart, Philly's version will be its own. The menu, while similar to the ones in other cities, is "at least 60% different", according to Urban Farmer's culinary director Matt Christianson. Rightfully so, considering the restaurant's commitment to working with as many local farms as they possibly can.
And despite its fancy new digs, Urban Farmer might stand as Philly's most affordable steakhouse, with dry-aged steaks maxing out at $75 for 7X Wagyu from Colorado, and dipping as low as $34 for a Creekstone Prime, Kansas, corn-ﬁnished flat iron. With a pretty intensive dry-aging program, house-made charcuterie (you'll find hanging in lockers in the dining room), and an old-school rolling cheese cart — made new-school using a mix of local PA cheeses and imported varieties — Urban Farmer looks to not just be a special occasion restaurant like its precursor, The Fountain.
