This November 25, 2019; Manhattan Beach will hold the grand opening of the 18th ever Urban Plates location. I first became a fan of Urban Plates when they opened up their Torrance branch earlier this year. Well known for their made-from-scratch meals using ethically-sourced ingredients; I fell in love this Fall with their food.
Similar to the opening of the Torrance location, Urban Plates Manhattan Beach held a a pre-grand opening celebration where they paired with a charitable institution supporting the local community. Urban Plates Manhattan Beach paired up once again Torrance-based nonprofit The Volunteer Center. It was an evening of good food all for a good cause!
I’ve loved Urban Plates ever since I tried their Torrance location. Favorite Urban Pltes dishes of mine include their Curry and Tofu Vegetable Braise, their Antioxident Salad and their Hummingbird Cake. The same great taste can be found at Manhattan Beach but there is even more as they also have added a new Plant Based Bowls menu. This includes vegan and gluten free delightful dishes! This menu is only at the Manhattan Beach location and not the Torrance one.
The new Plant Based Bowls menu is not the only new thing as Urban Plates Manhattan Beach restaurant is actually going be debuting something else very special this holiday season. They are going to be a launching a #GoodIsServed social media campaign. Urban Plates will be delivering 100 meals to local first responders on Thanksgiving Day and along with this the restaurant is telling their fans to also share their “do good moments” this holiday season. With every Instagram post that shows someone’s own “do good moment” (tagging @UrbanPlates and hashtagging #GoodIsServed), the restaurant team will also donate a meal to the The Volunteer Center. Urban Plates will donate up to 500 meals as part of this campaign.
Urban Plates continues to amaze me not only with their great food but with their great heart that goes with helping the local community. #GoodIsServed
