“Why Pay Less?”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Three of us recently had lunch at the new Cru Restaurant. It was not busy on a beautiful day. We were seated in the first room. The interior design is very nice and looks very expensive. The lunch prices were exorbitant -- the lobster roll at $28 ($10 higher than anywhere else) was sadly, not very good. It had some kind of off taste/herb in it. The softshell crab BLT was good, but it was a very small crab and not worth the $22 price. The sandwiches came with a large serving of fries. A glass of wine was $12-$14. Three sandwiches, two beers, one wine was over $100. Pretty place, great location, too bad it's over the top expensive and not great food. Wish it was still the Ropewalk.
