Crush is a favorite!! I had the blueberry salad which was maybe the best salad I have ever enjoyed! I also had the halibut that was equally delicious on a polenta bed! My husband had the beet salad (one of his favorites!!) along with the pork chop with frites. Delicious!!!! Andrea and Joe are a great team!! Their chef is quite a “find”!! Cannot recommend more highly! Our server, Gracie was the topping on our meal!! 💜
