Crush Restaurant Review

: Cool chairs and tables made from wine barrels and a roaring fire help create the modern style of this upbeat wine lounge. A community table calls for early and late night happy hours, when guests nibble on ahi, grilled artichokes and brick-oven meatballs served in roasted tomato sauce and basil pesto. Chef Matt Geremia favors Italian specialties like Crush Bolognese, a six hour rag├╣ over pappardelle; and chicken or eggplant Parmigiana. Pan-fried sole comes with kale slaw; whole fish of the day, based on daily fresh catch, is oak-grilled. Brick oven pizzas include fennel sausage or wild mushroom. The extensive wine list sports an interesting assortment of California and Italian choices. Live music on weekends and an outdoor fire pit add to the charm. Dogs are welcome on the patio.
