Construction is still underway at Urban Putt, the indoor miniature golf course and restaurant set to open in the Mission on May 5. To whet your palate, we've got a first peek at some of the many plates and bites to expect on the menu. In the kitchen, Dane Boryta (former chef-owner of Bottle Cap) is cooking up comforting staples like ribs, pizza, fried chicken, burgers and poutine. Before you hit all 14 holes, take a look at some of the snacks and meals that will be on offer when this groundbreaking spot opens up. 1096 S. Van Ness Ave.; 723-4500

    If you've come to throw down some serious carbs and meat, you can certainly do that at Urban Putt. Deep-dish pizzas on the opening menu include The Links (smoked pork sausage, boudin blanc, pepperoni, cremini mushrooms) and The Caddy Shack (applewood-smoked bacon, jalapeño, broccoli, leeks, ricotta).

    Bibs would be a good idea for the juicy-looking UP Burger, which is dressed with melted onions, tomato pesto and sharp cheddar.

    As you can tell, there are many opportunities to splurge on the Urban Putt menu, but you can also choose from lighter dishes like this spinach and arugula salad with sweet potato.

    The Canadian favorite of poutine (fries with cheese curds and gravy) gets amped up with duck confit.

    Another healthy dish: braised artichokes with mushrooms, English peas, quinoa salad and spiced carrot purée.

    The menu dips into Southern territory with dishes like shrimp and grits, jambalaya and these ribs and beans, served with a mustard barbecue sauce and kale.

    Little fried snacks like olives, chicken thighs, mini corn dogs, pretzels and chicken-and-waffle skewers are there for smaller appetites.

    Or you can skip to dessert and go for an ice cream sundae with hot fudge, mixed nuts and strawberries.
