Craft Bar

For some reason we haven’t been back to Craft Bar in a very long time. What a mistake on our part. We like eating in the Craft Bar rather than their more formal restaurant Craft as we can order from the Bar menu and Craft menu. Our first big surprise was to see Gustavo one of our favorite front of the house staff who we have known for years dating back to Spago. He was terrific! The rest of the front of the house team – Matt, Keith and Jeff were also very helpful, courteous and absolutely gracious.

    Perusing the archives has been a source of great enjoyment for quite some time now, so it’s great to see updates every so often. Keep up the great work!

    Hi Lizzie, In mid-June I’ll go to France and seeing your blog inspired me to write about the food and take photos. I will send you a list of places and restaurants visited upon my return (July 14th).
