When someone's getting all up in your grill, the best thing to say is "You better step off! The surface temperature of grills can approach 288 degrees Celsius—you shouldn't be standing on that thing!" Today's deal demonstrates a high regard for safety by leaving the grilling to the professionals: for $10, you get $20 worth of grill fare at Crave Grill, located on Ottawa Street.
Fresh is the golden rule at Crave, where never-frozen meats, seafood, and vegetables unite under a menu of nouveau Mediterranean and Cajun-inspired breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Fast breakers gobble up omelets ($8–$9), house-made pancakes ($6–$7), and Belgian waffles ($7). Dinner-farers, on the other hand, can celebrate the end of a long day's work in the wig factory with a hearty 10-ounce New York strip loin steak charbroiled or blackened in the Cajun style ($21). Within the cozy confines of Crave Grill's modern, rustic quarters, subliminally grilled chevaps whisper secret spices into a sausagey mix of ground beef, veal, and pork ($16), while sweet teeth and sommeliers sample five flavours of dessert crepe ($4.95), followed by a tipple off the extensive wine list.
According to the Windsor Ontario News, owner Milan Miokovic opened Crave Grill to correct the faults he found in other restaurants: crowded seating and inferior ingredients. The eatery's menu marries traditional cuisine—strip steaks and 8-ounce burgers—with exploratory international fare, such as creamy Italian pastas and tender wiener schnitzel. An extensive wine list brimming with sundry varietals from Canada and the world over complements entrees or serves as a reminder of grapes' mortality.
