Looks like a very limited menu.

Any reason why they are changing?

They are no longer connected to Urban Flats. They changed the Urban Flats on Sand Lake into City Fire and will do the same to the one in the Villages.

IMHO.... not a pretty name for a restaurant. I would have used a spin off of Urban Flats by just calling it "The Flats", that's what we call it now. City Fire??? IMHO...

I guess you can't yell it's name if it's crowded.

Went to the Coldwater Creek Fashion show there and it was explained to us that according to customer surveys a more substantial menu was requested so they will keep about 10 flat bread meals and will be expanding the menu with 10 other entrees and would be changing the name to City Fire.

They will also have a Nantucket Bay fashion show on 7/11 and they are starting Bunco on Wednesday mornings at 9:30. Trying to bring in business since the snowbirds left.

Urban Flats is a chain. Right? http://www.urbanflats.net/


If so it's not just a menu tweak and a name change. The menu for city fire looks to be less extensive if you ask me. I guess they have a few more choices in 'larger' plates but the whole food list fits on one small page. Looks like it is geared more toward the drinking crowd. But nothing wrong with that, it's a great location for it.

Urban Flats LLC is going through bankruptcy. It would be hard to stay in business in TV under a new name without the chain purchasing power behind them.
