If loving Cru is wrong…

Then I don’t want to be right. 

Yep, I’m talking about “Cru` a Wine Bar” at Watter’s Creek.

Cru in general is a great place if you’re into wine, but Watter’s Creek Cru is simply the best.

I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. If you are into wine, even to the slightest, you gotta check this place out. Cru` is the Disney World of the wine world – seriously!

Offering a menu of flights that encompasses whites, reds, desserts, bubbles – with food to match, I might add – this place is my home-away-from-home. It’s very cozy and perfect for a night of wine exploration.

I have never had a bad glass of wine there. The flight menus are changed out every week, switching it up and allowing you to try (for instance) the bubbly flight three weeks in a row and rarely have a repeat of a wine from the flight before.

And, talk about obscure varietals by the glass… If that floats your boat you will definitely dig this place, I mean, who doesn’t want a little Agiorgitiko now and then just to keep your palate fresh?

 
 
The food is amazing – always. Period. Further comment is not necessary.

The service is solicitous – yet not hovering, helpful – yet not know-it-all. Friendly and welcoming would be the catch-phrase for Cru`at Watter’s Creek. Mostly, IMHO, due to the general manager – Steve Orozco.

Steve is the in-house Sommelier and has been in the wine business all of his life – literally. Steve’s father, Victor,  is a MS and is well-known in various wine-producing regions of Europe. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree – or in this case, the grape didn’t fall far from the vine. If Steve is on-premise at Cru` Watter’s Creek, you’re in for a spectacular wine experience. Trust me.

So, if you have a free afternoon, or evening, stop by and prepare to be dazzled. I was.

 Find it ~ Try it ~ Love it!
Salud! KathyD
