A Southern California-based hospitality collective where dining and design form the ultimate union to deliver restaurants and wine shops that inspire the palette and evoke the senses.

Urban Kitchen Group has been a leader in Southern California’s culinary landscape for the last twenty-seven years.  UKG operates 10 restaurants and cafes and a catering company.  Included is the highly acclaimed CUCINA urbana + enoteca, ARTIFACT + CRAFT CAFE at Mingei Museum, Urban Kitchen at Rady’s Shell, Gold Finch Modern Delicatessen, Morena Provisions and The Kitchen @MCASD.

Our talented chef teams are dedicated to creating inventive, seasonal dishes, while running an ambitious in-house program, including house made charcuterie and sausage, cheese, artisanal breads and pastas made from scratch.

Dynamic, diverse and fun, our CUCINA wine program features 200+ labels from around the world, with an emphasis on Italian and California varietals.  Our goal is to share value with our guests, and celebrate those behind the label: on the farms and in the wineries.
