Crave downtown?

I heard crave was going downtown to the old Palamino location. Does anyone know when they are opening?

  1. The last I saw they were due to open this month, though they'd better hurry if they're going to meet that deadline. I've no plans to eat there, so I haven't really paid attention to updates.

      I'll second the "no plans to eat there!" Overpriced for the average food that churns out of that chain. Don't even bother with the sushi unless you are: a. starving, or b. a newbie to raw and don't know any better.

        Ditto. Tried it 3 or 4 times, different items, and never again. I truly don't know how they stay open, unless they're riding some trend that I'm unaware of...

          The same way any place like that stays open. They're trendy. I wouldn't be surprised if they're less-so in a year or two, and are forced to either up the food quality or lower the prices.

      2. Good looking, BAD food. Cold fries, cold rice and strange flavors in both entree's. Good place to get a drink ?

          1. To answer your question, I won't discuss my feelings about Crave, according to their Facebook page May 19 and rooftop June 5.

              Am I missing something? What does ibew292's post mean? Do I have to have Facebook to get it? I feel lost.

                They say they are opening May 19 on their Facebook page. That's what it means. I answered the question that was asked instead of commenting on Crave, like others.
