Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon to Crave. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get $30 worth of new American cuisine and drinks for dinner, served daily from 4 p.m. to close.
- For $10, you get $20 worth of new American cuisine and drinks for lunch, served daily from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Fresh ingredients from local suppliers flourish at Crave, where passionate chefs creatively combine Mediterranean and Asian influences to forge a distinctive American cuisine. During dinner hours, starters such as citrus-marinated shrimp and scallop ceviche ($12.95) prime tongues for complex entrees such as the crab-crusted filet mignon, served with lobster cream and Yukon Gold mashed potatoes ($32.95). Like scary utensils at the dentist's office, Crave's sushi rolls ($12.95–$17.95) seem to be magnetically attracted to wide-open mouths, with the tempura-fried sumo roll wrestling appetites with spicy salmon, mango, cilantro, asparagus, and sweet sauce ($13.95). Alternatively, flaky mahi-mahi sharing a pool with tropical fruit salsa, white rice, and coconut-curry sauce ($14.95) lends lunch a Polynesian flair without entangling diners in semi-sentient lei.
Crave's sommelier carefully chooses wines from around the world to complement the eclectic cookery, and the restaurant's low-lit ambience and chic décor create an intimate backdrop for shadow-puppet Civil War reenactments.
