I am totally enjoying my discovery of all the surprisingly great restaurants in Potsdam. My husband dashed into First Crush to escape the heat, noise and crowds while a street festival was underway. It was a relief to find air conditioning. I learned this sweltering weekend that it is not uncommon to find establishments in this part of the North Country (as I heard it referred to by locals) without air conditioning.
Anyhow, my visit to First Crush was very refreshing. The waitress was delightful, the food was delicious and the vibe was fun and lively. My husband ordered the Urban Cowboy panini (prime rib, cheddar, bacon and smoked BBQ sauce), and I had a kind of flat bread pizza with corn and black bean salsa topped with cheese. Our food was fabulous, as were our drinks (Malbec for me, Arnold Palmers for my husband). Well-nourished, relaxed and cooled off, we were refueled and ready to return to the heat and crowds of a busy Potsdam weekend.
