When Cru first opened a number of years ago, it was truly cutting edge and one of the top restaurants in the whole area. As chefs and owners changed, it went on a downward spiral. I haven't been back in at least 2 years, especially as there didn't seem to be much positive feedback by the local "hounds."
The wife and I were in the area so we decided to stop in. We weren't in the mood for a full dinner and decided to order from their tapas list. Everything was terrific starting with a wonderful smoked salmon dip and continuing with truffled short ribs with roast cauliflower, cornbread, and truffle butter, veal sweetbreads with red onion marmalade and veal jus, grilled romaine salad with smoked bacon, garlic, and parmesan dressing, and sashimi tuna taco with crispy pork belly, red onion, and cilantro.
The regular dinner menu also looked good. It appears that Cru is back on top of it's game.
