THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Crostini Restaurant Review

: Despite its original trendy menu, Crostini, housed in a cute little bungalow on the edge of Montrose, has major staying power. The innovative chef-owner dresses up fine Italian dishes with Southwestern and Thai accents and the results are not just surprisingly harmonious; they're as sophisticated, smart and comfortable as the character-filled dining room sparingly decorated with contemporary art. The adventuresome and inventive gambles generally pay off. We’ll eat anything with the addictive, versatile sweet-hot jalapeño sauce that has become this kitchen's signature. Other choices include seafood-packed ziti pomodoro; grilled polenta; lobster bisque; and a crab cake garnished with herbs and baby lettuces, then drizzled with potent tomatillo sauce. Pasta dishes are interesting, too. Guests flock to Crostini for brunch, when the French doors are flung open to the artsy patio and the bottomless mimosas are flowing.
