Description: Tucked away on the corner of Market Street and Elm Street in Postdam, New York, First Crush Wine Bar and Bistro is the best kept secret in the North Country. Blending casual dining with delicious food, First Crush is the place to catch up with friends, meet with a client, or maybe even start a new romance. First Crush provides an intimate, yet casual setting. Our goal is to provide each of our guests with warm, friendly hospitality. Whether you are there for just a cup of freshly ground and brewed coffee with a scratch baked scone, or one of our famously delicious Adirondack salads for lunch, a glass of wine with a few Tapas for dinner or a full dinner entree; we welcome you!!

Stopped here for lunch. Ordered the Crab-L-T from the menu. Food was good. Service was also prompt and professional.

Coming from an area with a plethora of food choices, my family was struggling to find a great place to eat. I have to say, First Crush is really great food, period. The food is fresh, the service is spectacular, and the atmosphere is fun. It can get a bit loud, as mentioned in other reviews, but nothing compared to some larger city restaurants. We eat here frequently, and plan to continue to do so.

This is one of the two restaurants in the area (the other is 1844 House) that we frequent. We would go out more, but there aren't many choices if you want nice food in the Canton-Potsdam area. We've been going here for many years now--since it opened nearly 10 years ago! Good choices for eating lightly or having a multi-course meal with dessert. Staff are always friendly and professional. We always leave smiling.

This restaurant serves excellent food for lunch and dinner, well prepared and served. Wait staff are helpful and efficient. The space is small however, and the hard surfaces make it a rather noisy space, making conversation difficult at times...

Always a great meal for lunch or dinner at First Crush. I try to go at least once a week. The salads are the best and the desserts are yummy.
