Omnivore - It's not a weenie
We visited the much anticipated Craft last weekend and had a mainly good meal.
We visited the much anticipated Craft last weekend and had a mainly good meal. Personally, I didn't find it as worthy of the rapture with which others have described it.
I do like the decor, a riff on the Arts and Crafts Movement. But the food was definitely a mixed bag.
My favorite dish by far was a starter of Wagyu beef tongue with slices of pickled jalapeno and basil leaves (right). My least favorite was a special of monkfish wrapped in bacon (above). A certain editor told me that a certain acquaintance of hers tried the same dish and said it tasted like ... a hotdog. That's a perfect description of both the taste and texture of the dish.
Craftbar, the less pricey downstairs area of the restaurant space, is scheduled to open for lunch next week.
Look for my next edition of Grazing for a full first look.
