The restaurant brand uses sustainably sourced seafood and meats, as well as offers gluten-free, plant-based and low-carb options to accommodate a range of lifestyles and dietary preferences.

Its menu is free of GMOs [genetically modified produce], antibiotics and hormones.

Urban Plates operates 19 locations in San Diego, Orange County, the greater Los Angeles area and Northern California.

In August 2023, Urban Plates secured $27m from investment funds managed by Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital to support its expansion plans.

The finances will also be used by the company to refinance its current debt.

Nadhir commented on the investment: “Our menu and our concept are right for the time. Wherever you are on your journey to eat better, we will meet you there.

“We believe that everyone deserves to eat this good. We are very pleased to work with Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital as we continue to expand the brand footprint and position ourselves for continued future success.”
