If you frequent parties and events in the Lowcountry, chances are you’ve had a taste of Cru Catering (four-cheese macaroni ring any bells?). From fancy fundraisers to weddings to South of Broad soirees, locals have learned they can count on Cru for solid catering. But to really enjoy their offerings, head to Cru Café, just off of the Market. The restaurant is located in a cozy historic home on Pinckney Street, with tables spread out on the front porch and two rooms inside. As you walk up the porch steps and in the front door, it feels intimate yet welcoming, like you’re dining at a friend’s house. Chef John Zucker puts a gourmet twist on comfort food with offerings like buttermilk fried oyster salad with apple-smoked bacon and honey sherry dressing, chicken paillard, and Thai seafood risotto with coconut milk, soy, sriracha, and carnaroli rice. Go for lunch if you’re on a budget — salads and sandwiches are priced around $10. —Erica Jackson Curran Dish (Winter 2014)
