About Urban Heights

Unique Multi Level Indoor and Outdoor Party Space

At the peak of so many restaurant openings in 2015, we are hard-pressed to find any with a dedication to Philippine and Southeast Asian cultures, but it's time to take notice of one in Bethesda, Maryland. The cuisine may not be indicated at first in the name,Urban Heights, but that was not the intention. It is, however, reflected in the cuisine and its "heightened" sense of quality in the superior ingredients and authentic techniques that will separate it from all others replicating an ethnically rich palette. The fact is, Cliff Wharton will be the executive chef and he established himself as a pan-Asian culinary genius at Washington's late-great TenPenh, the restaurant that set the standard for creative variations on eastern themes.

In developing the extensive list of small plates that dominate the menu, Wharton draws on his own Filipino heritage, his finely tuned instinct for the flavors of other Asian cultures, and his delight in mixing it up for the sake of a great bite. Your first view off the lift is the Tuna Bar, an eyeful of highest quality tuna resting on a bed of ice, awaiting orders for dedicated tuna delicacies from ahi poke to tuna tartare. Intriguing spins range from the Chicken Adobo Sliders to the Xo Honey Glazed Shrimp with Wasabi Grits to the Pork Belly Bites with Gochujan [Korean chili paste]. A Korean Bulgogi-style Steak Salad with Chili-Lime Dressing presents a flavorful riff on a hearty favorite, and at dinner, Wharton will be reprising his signature Red Curry Shrimp with Pineapple and Jasmine Rice. In the kitchen, he'll man multiple woks; come summer, he'll channel his native Philippines, hosting pig roasts on the top deck in an open pit.

Urban Heights tells us that the restaurant has the loftiest expectations to please all with seating that spans from the second to third floors, and that it is centrally located in the densely populated downtown Bethesda. This will be al fresco at its best with outdoor tables for dining on the second floor and the expansive third floor top deck, which allows you to sip quenching beers way into the night along with "Island Cocktails" - handcrafted concoctions with aromatic essence and elegant presentations, which evoke the Far East even before your lips touch the rim with innovative spins and an intensely craft approach.

For an outing that combines hi-altitude excitement with the flavors of Asia, put your passport away - just hit the UP button and soar to Urban Heights.
