Mini Review: Craft’s New Lunch Options

Anthony Zappola, the new chef de cuisine at Craft, has rolled out a few changes: Look for larger, home-style portions at lunch (more like dinner service) and new lunch menu items. The menu isn’t exactly the same from day to day, but the next time you stop by Craft, I suggest you order the pork shoulder. When I visited Craft to try the new items, Zappola said the dish was essentially pork confit with a kind of homemade molasses gastrique; the pork is topped with tomatoes (they’re so sweet it’s almost impossible to identify them) and couldn’t be better. It’s now on my last-supper list.

Also new to the menu: Skate wing (ours was upstaged by the pickled pressed radishes that topped the dish) and a zingy scallop-jalapeno-avocado appetizer (it isn’t listed as ceviche, but that’s essentially what it is), among a handful of others.

If you haven’t had Craft’s take on strawberry shortcake, it’s a doozy: think rose cream on shortbread cookies with a side of strawberry frozen yogurt and a nice sampling of berries.
