Craft Bar - What's the deal?

Bond Girl | Jan 24, 2003 10:47 PM

Couldn't get a reservation at Craft, so went to the Craft Bar instead. Don't understand the hype. The fried oysters were the best part of the meal, even then it was okay. The arugula salad was nothing to write home about and certainly not worth $10. The fish stew was plain awful. The squid was over cooked, the fish pieces was dry and clams were rubbery. Top it all off, the thing was so salty that you need a whole bottle of water just to wash it down. The dessert looked good, but I wish it tasted half as good as it looked. The apple fritters were too hard on the inside, and was swimming in melted ice cream when it reached my table. Was the place always this bad?
