I have been very excited about Cru coming back. We started with the Chef's board charcuterie with the soppresatta, robiola with peach jam, and the smoked whitefish. As soon as they brought this dish out, I knew I shouldn't eat as much as I did but it was so good. I had a really hard time deciding what to order. Going in I was sure I would order the Tuna Nicoise salad, I had this at the previous Cru and it is the only salad (possibly ever) that I would crave. I don't usually order a salad for the main course! But - I changed my mind on what to order when I heard about the creamed corn with the salmon.
I think this is a great addition to the neighborhood. Not only was the food great but the wine selection and cocktails were fun and interesting. The space itself was simple but had some really charming pieces like the tiled ceilings and chandeliers.
Even though the salmon was great, I have a list of dishes I couldn't decide between tonight so I will be back to find my favorite. Also - the Pimm's cup drink was amazing. I highly recommmend it.
We had a preview of the fried zucchini and morel mushrooms so if you get a chance to try those, I would check them out.
