What is Urban Swank? Urban Swank is a food blog dedicated to bringing a wealth of information and a different perspective on both food and drinks to their fellow foodies. Urban Swank will cover popular cities in Texas, Louisiana, and Georgia, but will focus mainly on the Houston, Texas food scene. The Urban Swank Blog will include honest, 100% unbiased restaurant reviews, upcoming foodie events, recipes from local favorites, the best of across the nation, new restaurants, interviews with featured chefs, a listing of Houston happy hour and brunch spots, restaurant specials, and much more.
Who is Urban Swank? Easily described as the merging of two perspectives, Urban Swank brings you the world of food from two interesting and unique view points. This enables Urban Swank to cover all possible angles of the culinary experience. Urban Swank has been afforded the opportunity to dine in some of the best and worst kitchens, taste the food of top chefs and not so top chefs, and partake in some of the best cocktails made by renowned mixologists around the world.
As the face of Urban Swank we have Shanna "Urban Girl" Jones and Felice “Swanky Girl” Sloan. A true urbanite, Shanna's passions are centered on the urban lifestyle, trendsetting, and being ahead of the "know". Although she is not professionally versed in the in's and out's of the kitchen, she sure knows food. In summary, she is a true foodie by heart, a subject matter expert by experience, and an urbanite by choice. If you look up the word “swanky”, Felice’s picture would be right next to it! She loves all things stylish, posh, and that are completely SWANK. Many consider her a maven in many areas and her love of food, and passion for all things food, tops the list.
Besides loving food they also have a passion for traveling. So, they have combined the two. They have both had the opportunity to do a significant amount of traveling for pleasure and in their professional lives, so finding a great meal on the road (and let's not forget a yummy cocktail) is always at the top of their list.
Why Urban Swank? At Urban Swank, it is not just about the food. It’s the ambiance, the service, the appetizers, the drinks, the socializing, the experience, and everything in between. In addition, Urban Swank can separate good food from great food and we understand that great food must be able to stand alone. They are not professionally trained nor have we received national accolades afforded to top chefs and other food critics. Simply put, they are two girls who love great food, great drinks, and great experiences. Through this blog Urban Swank will give you a snapshot into their lives as they embark on a wonderful food filled journey. Join the Urban Swank Girls as they bring the fun to food.
