Urban Plates opened Monday in Sunnyvale, California, marking its third Bay Area location, joining locations in Pleasant Hill and Dublin. With eyes on further expanding its Northern California footprint, a fourth outpost is planned at Santana Row in 2023.
“The response to our Bay Area restaurants has been overwhelming and the opening of Sunnyvale will kick start further expansion in the region,” Joe O’Donnell, president of Urban Plates, said in a company press release. “Everyone deserves to eat this good, and we can’t wait to share our food and grow our local Urban Plates family.”
Located at 300 W. McKinley Ave, the restaurant is situated in the city’s Cityline development, a bustling 4.5-acre mixed-use project in the heart of Silicon Valley, just steps from Caltrain and historic Murphy Avenue. With industrial chic interiors and a sleek, modern aesthetic aligned with Cityline, the 5,070-square-foot restaurant seats 135 with both indoor and outdoor dining options. An open concept kitchen and ordering area offers guests a front row seat to watch their meals being prepared.
“This location was several years in the making, and we’ve planted the seeds for nurturing a strong connection with the Sunnyvale and greater Silicon Valley community,” Lee Walters, general manager of Urban Plates Sunnyvale, said in the release.
