CLAYTON — The new restaurant called Urban Harvest at 8331 N. Main St. in the Randolph Plaza will open to the public on Monday, Nov. 5, according to chef-owner Matthew DeAngulo.
DeAngulo, who previously was the founding chef at Olive restaurant in Dayton, said Urban Harvest Restaurant & Catering will open with 10 to 12 employees, “and we’ll be adding more soon.” Hours, at least to start, will be Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., closed Sunday.
“We will be having Saturday brunch later, starting around the holidays, and we will be opening at 7 or 7:30 a.m. for donuts and danishes from Bill Evans bakery and other assorted treats and baked goods from local suppliers, such as yogurt smoothies from Star Dancer Creamery and Boston Stokers coffee, after we get up and rolling,” DeAngulo said.
Urban Harvest’s menu will focus on Midwestern casual food, with a strong emphasis on local sourcing of ingredients, DeAngulo said. Renovations began in the spring on the space that formerly housed the former Uptown Delicatessen, and construction delays postponed Urban Harvest’s opening.
DeAngulo was and formerly worked at several other Dayton-area restaurants, including Olivia’s, Neil’s Heritage House, Zola’s, Cafe Boulevard, and Benham’s.
Urban Harvest’s catering services will include box-lunch deliveries. Paige Decker will serve as catering sales manager; she held a similar position at Olivia’s, DeAngulo said.
