On Friday night Jeff and I went with a few friends to check out a new spot in town. Craft 260 is right down the street from us and it looked too cool to not check out.
Upon arrival our waiter greeted us and was super helpful answering all our questions and making recommendations. I really appreciate a waiter that knows the menu well and is able to offer recommendations.
My friend Allison and I shared the BEER BRUSSELS: BEER SOAKED BRUSSEL SPROUTS, ROASTED GARLIC, GOAT CHEESE, SMOKED TOMATO & BOURBON KETCHUP. Oh my gosh these were amazing! I loved the goat cheese on them. The ketchup wasn’t necessary in my opinion but it was good.
We also shared the FRESH HANDMADE BURRATA: FRESH CREAM MOZZARELLA, SMOKED TOMATO RELISH, HERB INFUSED EXTRA VIRGIN, KALAMATA OLIVE, GRILLED ROASTED GARLIC BREAD. I loved the burrata and the kalamata olive spread. It was soo delicious. I thought the tomatoes were a tad too smokey and didn’t fit well with the dish, Allison agreed with me.
For my entree I went for the SALMON: CEDAR PLANK SALMON FILET, MUSTARD PANKO CRUST, ROASTED VEGETABLES, LEMON ROSEMARY QUINOA. I got it sans panko because the panko wasn’t gluten free. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the veggies that came with it were fantastic, I also enjoyed the quinoa but didn’t eat much of it because I was so focused on the fish and veggies.
Jeff got the GRILLED HANGER: 12-14 OZ MARINATED HANGAR STEAK, CRAFT FRIES, LEMON GARLIC GREEN BEANS. He liked his steak but wished it came with a demi glaze or a marinade on it. I tried a bite and agreed with him.
I highly recommend local people checking out Craft260 if not for food at least for one of their fantastic drinks!
Do you appreciate when waiters know the menu and know what they are talking about?
