Suggestions for Craft?

I'm going on a business dinner tomorrow night at Craft. Any recommendations of what to order? Thanks!

  1. The ice cream and sorbet sampler :) seriously hehe

    The braised beef short rib is good if they don't overcook it. Diver scallops are good.
    Their first courses are typically pretty good although some are small for the price.


    1. haven't been - but i heard the mushrooms were delicious!

      1. Pork belly
        Duck tongue
        Duck egg
        Foie gras

        None of the desserts we tried were all that memorable, esp. the donuts which were laughably sweet.

        1. The mushrooms are fantastic, as is the gnocchi, for sides. I have also enjoyed the diver scallops, short ribs, the pork belly, and the quail (listed as an appetizer, but actually larger than some entrees). The fois gras appetizer also was pretty decadent.

          The ice creams are good, as is the sauteed peaches (not sure if it is seasonal) and the caramel chocolate torte.

          Everything is served family style so you can order a bunch of things and try them all. If one or two are just okay, you should have enough very good dishes to offset those.

          1. I went last Monday. Everything we had was great. However, the standouts were as follows: (i) Carpaccio with Crispy Oysters; (ii) Roasted octopus; (iii) Venison; (iv) Leek and Duck Confit Risotto.
