The first course was a Peeky Toe Crab & Pea Salad. Although I would have preferred the crap to be warm in contrast to the cold salad, a tasty dish nonetheless thanks to the sweet peas. The second dish was the Wild Spinach & Chanterelle Cannelloni was definitely a favorite. The moment it hits the tongue and explosion of flavor rushes the palette. The chanterelles just added the perfect mix of earthiness to counter the cheese and spinach. The third course was Swordfish with Bordeaux Spinach
& Mousseron Mushrooms. The fish was perfectly cooked, and the mushrooms were always a nice welcome. What made this dish special was that so many things could have gone wrong, but didn’t. The fourth course was the Squab Ricotta & Stinging Nettle Tortellini and Bluefoot Mushrooms. Yes there’s a lot of mushrooms so far, but for a reason. The bluefoot was a perfect compliment to the nicely cooked squab that was sauced perfectly, giving off hints of liver without being gamy. The tortellini was cooked perfectly al dente and provided that bit of savory to such a meaty course. The fifth course was Ozark the Grass-Fed Sirloin French Lentils & Spring Vegetables, another favorite. The star of this dish surprisingly wasn’t the meat, but the tiny sized lentils that combined with ever element on the dish. There was also a long bean vegetable I couldn’t figure out but it was delicious. Also, let’s not forget the sirloin, perfectly medium rare and perfectly seasoned. Now the dessert! The Ricotta Crêpes with Strawberries & Rhubarb was extremely light and necessary after a few heavier, meatier dishes. The crepe was fluffy and the ricotta melded nicely with the strawberries and rhubarb, I just wished the crepe was a bit bigger. The Chocolate Financier Brooks Cherries & Vanilla Ice Cream was an absolute winner! What better way to end a meal than with something chocolate and vanilla? The mini cake was warm, moist, flavorful, everything you could have hoped for and the combination with the vanilla ice cream just could not be beat. Add some cherries and you can almost see yourself levitate off your seat. Overall, an amazing time! I’d come back just for the cannelloni to be honest. If you have the cash and wish to splurge, make the right choice and give Craft a crack to feed your appetite.
