A Restaurant Review - Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

You guys. Ohhhh my goodness. I'm dying over my dinner from Crave last night. You want to know how good it was? So good that I, Brittany "Dessert-Obsessed-As-in-I-Have-to-Have-it-Every-Night" Dahn, passed up dessert in turn for finishing off my leftovers later at night.

That never. ever. ever. happens. Taylor Swift style. So let me tell you about it.

Crave Grilled Cheese2

A friend and I (Hi, Kaitlyn!) were supposed to grab sushi before our painting class. I looked up a place that was supposed to be in the same shopping center as the art studio, but after driving around for a few minutes, we didn't see it and didn't have much time to keep looking. Crave was right there and since I've read such good things about it from Christina, I was excited to give it a try.

I had to make a quick choice, which can be really difficult for me when I haven't planned ahead and researched the menu. (I had already narrowed down the sushi rolls I wanted, but obviously that was no help now).

I was torn between the Cobb Salad and the Spinach and Tomato Grilled Cheese. Our waitress said both were very good, but said the grilled cheese in particular was really amazing. From my picture above, you already know which I picked. I figured you can get a good salad at a lot of places, but it's not everywhere you see a grilled cheese on the menu made with goat cheese (!!!!!), provolone, spinach and tomato. If I see goat cheese listed in the menu description, I can't get my mind off of it.

The sandwich was everything I hoped it would be and more. And then there were the sweet potato chips - which are really thick-cut round crinkle fries. I could not stop eating those, they were seriously addicting. 

This morning I did the longest run that I've done in probably two years. I'm attributing that accomplishment to my meal last night. It must have magically powers.

Needless to say, I can't wait to go back to Crave. I would love to have this sandwich again, but there are many other things I'm looking forward to trying too. They even have weekend brunch including pancakes, which are apparently the "biggest pancakes you will ever see" according to the menu. Count me in.

Oh yeah, and after I tweeted to Executive Chef Landen Ganstrom about my fabulous meal, he said:

Chef Landen, you've got yourself a deal!
