Farm-to-table Friday

Hello fellow CRāVers!

Friday is finally here, and what better way to kick off your weekend than an exceptional meal at CRāVing Restaurant? We have a slew of brand new daily cravings that will surely satisfy everyone in your party.

Take, for example, our Fried Turkey Wings, smothered in turkey confit, fried until delightfully crispy, topped with fresh orange fennel and Plato Dale Farms herb pistou. It’s the perfect small plate to whet your appetite.

For dinner, may I suggest our Carbonara? The local farmers at T-Meadow farms have sent us the tenderest of pork cheeks, which the chefs here have cured into the salted and smokey guanciale. Chef then renders down the guanciale with a Groundworks Farm hen egg, and tops everything with freshly grated parmesan reggiano. All served over a bed of house made fettucine pasta.

Chef’s Daily Cravings

Any day of the week you can come in and try one of our fantastic staple dinner menu items, like our steak and banana pepper flatbread pizza, or our homemade handkerchief pasta with asparagus and fresh mushrooms, but what really sets CRaVing apart from the rest are our Daily Cravings! Each week Chef Adam gets fresh new ingredients from local farms, and develops a unique menu inspired by them.

Being truly farm to table, Chef will take entire turkeys, locally grown and antibiotic free, and use every delicious part. Come in and try our turkey “oysters”- only two per turkey, these scrumptious and tender dark meat pieces will melt in your mouth. Served with Plato Dale Farms bekena and topped with fresh turkey jus- it’s the perfect small plate to start off your dinner!

Keep checking the CRaVing website to learn more about the latest daily cravings.
