THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Crave Restaurant Review

: Set in a small space within an arts center, Crave is too well-lit for romance but just right for a gossipy meal with a friend. This bistro delivers well on its brief menu’s promises. Breakfast features common egg dishes as well as unique takes on the morning meal, such as the Madame Crave prepared with egg, Gruyère, hot mustard and ham. Salads are palate-cleansing: try the watercress in a lemony vinaigrette, adorned with sweet almonds, smoky manchego, orange slices and frizzled shallots. For lunch we dip our spoons into pasta Fazool, penne served in a broth of fennel, white beans, bacon, escarole and thyme. Shiitake mac ‘n’ cheese is as sinful as it sounds. At dinner, we opt for duck confit, served with fig compote, greens and bread pudding. Or we dig into goat cheese gnocchi, a sweet-savory concoction with apple-sage sauce, toasted hazelnuts, prosciutto and peppers. It’s hard to ignore the mole-braised lamb shank, too. A short wine list bypasses the Northwest, focusing on Californian or European pours.
