Urban Pl8, the paleo and gluten-free restaurant that closed on the Westside last year, is opening a Krog Street Market stall November 17. Located across from Yalla, it will offer prepared sandwiches, salads, and sides, a daily hot special, and paleo meal plans.

Owner Betsy Pitts will serve as chef, making grab-and-go items like grilled chicken salad and gluten-free chicken pesto pita pockets, and sides like pimento cheese, jalapeno cole slaw, and fingerling potato salad. There will be one hot special prepared to order daily, often a favorite menu item from the Westside location (chicken tagine, stir fries, or a nut burger). On weekends, Urban Pl8 will open early, serving fresh paleo hash and blueberry almond meal griddle cakes.

“The idea is to get people local, paleo, gluten-free, sustainable food at a moment’s notice,” Pitts says, explaining that patrons can order online and request delivery to their car when they arrive at Krog.

There will also be a paleo meal plan that includes lunch and dinner for three or five days with everything pre-portioned and vacuum sealed. These meals can be cooked at home in boiling water. Another option is the Mom’s Meal for four, which includes 16 ounces of protein (grilled chicken, hanger steak, or grilled salmon, for example) with two sides, such as sweet potatoes, asparagus, mushrooms, and broccoli. A second location in Collier Hills is also in the works.
