In last week's Dish
recipe issue, we included a recipe from Urban Steam
, the Cubano Hidalgo
Owner Kelly Bubach happened to be updating his menu as I was in shooting pics, and he'd also just received a slim supply of Urban Bourbon, a whiskey made special for the coffee shop by Distillery 291
. (It's stupid good.)
Below, he describes what's new:
Daytime — We've added our Big Kahuna (1/2 lb) and Royale with Cheese (1/4lb) burgers, along with a spicy black bean & quinoa burger, to our daytime menu. Featuring Black Forest's Corner Post Meats pasture-raised beef and Old School Bakery Ciabbata and Focaccia breads respectively. We've had these on our night menu for some time and moved them to daytime due to the positive response (and demand) from our customers. We've also brought back the Opie Gone Wild waffle, our Belgian-based waffle smothered in peanut butter, strawberry jam and bananas, topped with our house French vanilla whip, dark chocolate and caramel sauces.
Night time — We've added some fun savory waffles, The Greek, The Balboa and the Hipster Holdout, to our after-5pm menu, utilizing our basil pesto buttermilk waffle and fresh toppings such as feta, kalamata olives, spinach, arugula, sundried tomatoes, etc, to bring a little taste of the Mediterranean to our waffle lineup.We also offer some little nibbles for our night crowd and to complement our beer and cocktail offering: A Greek olive medley; nut bowls with smoked almonds, cashews and pistachios; A nibbler plate with toasted baguette slices to dip in house made hummus, oil and balsamic with capers and our fig jam, with a small bowl of Greek olives to nom on and a chunk of Greek feta cheese. A new item is Caprese kabobs - skewered cherry tomatoes and fresh mozzarella, drizzled with virgin olive oil and our sweet balsamic reduction.
Plus we now offer craft beers on tap and have some fun new cocktails to showcase our whiskey and bitters collection.
The Cubano Hidalgo is one of the newest espresso drink additions.

Forget the shit-show, this bourbon is fantastic.
