The location may be slightly off the beaten path, but the experience will be quite memorable. Cru Café is nestled in a classic 18th-century Charleston single-style home on Pinckney Street. Since it opened in 2002, the restaurant has consistently ranked high among locals and tourists alike. Le Cordon Bleu graduate Chef John Zucker leads the team at Cru Café. He is known for his gourmet twist on comfort food. He trained under celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck at Spago in Las Vegas and became sous chef for the opening of Canoe, which was nominated as best new restaurant of the year by the James Beard Foundation. Zucker served as a consultant for McCrady’s, 39 Rue de Jean and Fish, all located in downtown Charleston.
Cru Café features something for everyone from its famous four-cheese macaroni to the tasty Thai Seafood Risotto. They have delicious salads, such as the Chinese chicken salad, if you’re in the mood for a lighter affair. If you like fresh air with your meal, grab a seat on their quaint porch. The wine list is varied and rich. Leave room for a dessert that will rival any of your favorite sweet treats.
