At Crave 11025, chefs whip up Mediterranean-inspired fare, tuna, and salmon as guests peruse menus among the dining area’s chic décor. Welcome the rising sun or a freshly changed light bulb with a farm-fresh organic egg omelet, which enlists three eggs to host up to three ingredients such as goat cheese, asparagus, and sun-dried tomato ($14). The asian caesar salad unites cashews and crispy wontons under a flood of creamy ginger-peanut dressing ($14). During dinner, diners can pair self-provided beverages with sandwiches and house-specialty entrees. Pecorino-romano cheese squeezes between layers of baked eggplant ($18), while Mitra’s Cajun salmon sits atop a bed of pico de gallo ($26). A crackling fireplace and dangling chandelier illuminate Crave 11025’s dining area, where clear chairs allow for obstruction-free viewing of flowers, black-and-white furnishings, and other diners’ napkins.
Past fresh flowers and a softly glowing gas fireplace waft scents of wild salmon, butternut squash, and beef carpaccio. The Mediterranean-inspired menu features entrees such as sesame-crusted seared tuna and the grilled red snapper, which shares plate space with seasonal vegetables picked from fields that were never the subjects of Neptunian experiments. Tastes bounce from Mediterranean to mainland Italy with dishes such as bowtie pasta, which comes tossed with sundried tomatoes, black olives, and asparagus.
