Tom's Urban Gets a Remodel: More Restaurant, Less Diner -- and Shorter Hours

When Tom's Urban 24 opened on Halloween night 2012, it lit up the corner of Larimer and 15th streets that had gone dark when the Samba Room closed. Last week that space went dark again -- but only temporarily -- so that owner Tom Ryan could introduce some changes. When the brown paper covering the dining room windows was taken down Monday morning, the restaurant was again open for business -- but as Tom's Urban, with the "24" dropped from the name and the open-all-night concept sliced in half. The space has also gotten a bit of a cosmetic update, and the menu has been revamped, too. We sat down with Ryan at the bar before the doors opened to talk about the changes in design, food and drink.
