Weaving together the exotic flavors of the Caribbean with the comfort foodiness of traditional Italian dishes, Crudo's chef Rene Hernandez stuns taste buds with a three-course dose of quality fusion fare. Dining duos can inaugurate meals with garlic-steamed mussels posillipo or the festín de empanadas—beef, chicken, and cheese ensconced inside flaky turnovers. Whetted appetites can then peruse the entree menu, selecting succulent forkfuls of salmon picatta or paella valenciana—a combination of chicken, chorizo, shrimp, and seafood served over a hearty bed of saffron rice. Sugary bites conclude three-course meals, sating sweet teeth with flan, crème brûlée, or fried-banana cheesecake. Diners can be seated inside the lively bar, which offers guests a chance for late-night socializing, or snag a secluded table on the outdoor garden to infuse comestible consumption with an enchanting, starlit glow.
Under the glow of blue and purple neon lights, Crudo's Caribbean-Italian fusion fare makes its way to diners from the hands of chef Rene Hernandez, settling down alongside cocktails, beer, and wine from the sleek marble bar. Piled-high plates rest calmly atop the white tablecloths that cloak the dining area's wooden tables, and high ceilings provide plenty of head room for building tall towers of salmon piccata, penne alla vodka, grilled skirt steak, and Cuban-style shredded beef. During warmer months, diners nosh beneath hanging lanterns and bright red canopies in an open-air outdoor seating area. The island cuisine also fuels trips to nearby hotspots that include Macy's on 34th Street, Manhattan Center, and Madison Square Garden.
