Advice: Make and advance reservation
I dined here recently with some friends and had a wonderful meal. Cru specializes in serving small plates and more than 35 wines by the glass along with a changing prix-fixed menu. This is place for foodies, the dishes that we had were their Syrah-braised Beef Short Rib ($18) with macaroni and cheese, Miso-marinated Sablefish ($13) with creamed cauliflower and sautéed greens. To finish off the meal I ordered the Grand Cru Chocolate Truffle ($8) with peanut butter marscarpone mouse to share.
Cru is a modern yet relaxed intimate space, artful and somewhat romantic.The prix-fixe menu ($42) is the way to go here, featuring 3 courses and then you can pair each item with a different wine from their extensive list.
