Pasture-raised local eggs with brown and green speckles. Homemade sausage. Baskets of colorful farm-to-store sweet peppers. Raisins on the vine. Urban Radish is every foodie's dream grocery store. Owner and passionate food enthusiast Keri Johnson envisioned it as an extension of her own pantry at home, with the added mission of bringing together the Arts District community. Johnson and daughter Mackenzie curate everything down to the most minute detail, including the pickled red onions on the delicious Dragon Chicken sandwich, which has become a neighborhood favorite. Tuesday is Oyster and Wine Night, while Wednesday night is for jazz and grilled meats. In the morning there is an omelette bar and world-class breakfast burritos, served by employees sourced from Homeboy Industries, yet another way that Urban Radish gives back to the community.
