Bonnie & Nathan Shea

Owners

​After opening the wildly successful Urban Crust in 2009, Bonnie and Nathan got the itch to open another restaurant and purchased the original Plano Ice House. After redeveloping the building, they opened Urban Rio in 2012. Longtime residents of the area, the Sheas are advocates to downtown Plano. They are actively involved with area nonprofits, including service on boards of directors, events, sponsorships and in-kind support through their restaurants.
