THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cru Cafe & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: For a wine bar, this place has food with true creative sizzle. Not that it's into heavy-duty cooking---it's not that kind of place. However, the fresh oysters are of boutique caliber, like Kumamoto and Quilcene for example; the soups are tasty, house-made numbers; the salad Ni├žoise is au courant; and so on. The wine list is exceptional and covers most of the globe, with price levels that range from about $30 to up to $1,100. Don't panic, though. There are lots of wines by the glass, as well as flights with tastes of several wines.
