I think it can be accepted as a given at this point that I love Cru. I think it is also a given that any time you talk something up too much and build up people's expectations of a place they are bound to be let down, no matter how great the actual experience. With that said, I had dinner at Cru this week, again Robert Bohr and Shea Galante put their heads together and created a menu and wine pairings for 6 of us, and a good time was had by all.
The fish was fantastic, the pheasant was perfect but the best part was the asparagus with the veal. Sweet and fresh and unlike any other I had. It is a very special thing when your neighborhood joint trades in the exceptional.
