I have reservations for Craft due to the great reviews I've read here but there is a vegetarian in my party and I was looking for some feedback on whether or not this might be a problem. If so, any alternative suggestions?

      You should be fine -- call ahead and confirm.

        used to work there....the vegetables are all impeccably prepared and almost all vegetarian. Your friend will have a great time and a delicious meal. I recommend the field mushrooms.

            While my original post was months ago, we finally made it to Craft the other night and the food, as promised, was delicious. I'm not sure how such simple preparations were so delicious.

            We had the bacon, oysters, shortribs, halibut, softshell crabs, jersaleum artichokes, butterball potatoes, carrots, mushrooms (I don't recall which). We also finished with the donuts which were spectacular.

            Service was great. I loved the cocktail program, too.

            My only complaint was while there are a lot of vegetables on the menu, they were not very accommodating in suggesting a way for the vegetarian in my party to put together a meal.

            Overall, though, very good meal - I wish I knew how they made simple things taste so good!!

              So I need another recommendation. As previously posted, we all loved Craft. We looking for another place, again fit for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. We prefer to order off a menu (not prix-fix) and as for pricing, similar to Craft will do. Any thoughts?

                It might be more helpful to post a new thread.
