Effective today, the restaurant inside Urbana’s VFW #630 is closed. The kitchen was run by Chefs Zachary Bronson and Katrina Downes, who previously worked in the kitchen at Radio Maria. The chef duo competed in last October’s 7th Artisan Cup & Fork event with a pork tenderloin roulade with local vegetables and polenta.

Just a few weeks ago, Carl reviewed the food at the restaurant and called it “one of the best kept dining secrets in the area.” I am sad to see it close, too. The cheeseburger was awesome, and the restaurant was one of the most affordable lunches in town. Hopefully, we will see Chefs Bronson and Downs cooking something else delicious around C-U in the future.
