Under the guidance of executive chef and partner Javier Perez, the food will be made from scratch, using fresh, highest-quality ingredients…A selection of shareable plates includes items such as Wagyu beef carpaccio, gluten-free calamari fritto misto, and veal beef pork mozzarella polpette. Pizza and flatbreads are made to order in a wood-fired oven. Crudo Italian will offer a varied selection of wines from boutique wineries, chosen to provide a complementary role to chef Javier’s menu.
