We walked in at about 6:30 and were seated right away. I started off with a ginger martini. Nice. I knew I wanted the grilled octopus appetizer. I was served a nicely charred piece of tentacle, garnished with watermelon radish slices. The octopus had a firm but pleasant texture and there was A LOT. I had to leave a few bites. This app, with a salad would have made a reasonable meal, but I was seduced by the dayboat scallops served with a squash puree, a beautiful and delicious main course.
There was an off-menu pasta dish featuring white truffles. We ordered a half order of that to share between our courses. This was the standout dish of the evening. Tagliatelle so perfectly cooked and silky, with parmesan, a soft-cooked duck egg on top, and lots of truffle shavings. We tossed it all together and the result was an amazing truffly sauce on the pasta. God, it was good!
I liked everything about Craftbar. The service was efficient and pleasant. Our server recommended a wine (by the glass) that worked nicely with what we ordered.
It would be possible to have a reasonably priced meal here with apps and a soup or salad. They offer warm pressed sandwiches and a couple of interesting pate plates too. We went overboard, but enjoyed every bite! There's an interesting cheese selection too. I'd love to go again.
