Highly anticipating the opening of Crudo Grand Opening (Hopefully) Aug 1st!. Can’t wait to indulge in Pascal’s creations, described as locally sourced Mediterranean style Sushi? Don’t know how else to describe it, because that doesn’t really capture what he’s doing. The food is just amazing looking.. If the flavors even approach the stunning presentations, it will be truly spectacular fare. I have stopped by to look at the restaurant several times now and have been lucky enough to meet Pascal on a couple of occasions (seems he’s always there) and have him give me a tour. The spaces inside and out look clean, sleek, and cool (like his creations).
Check out the latest [SDUT article on Pascal and his new concept, Crudo] (http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2016/jul/13/crudo-restaurant-pascal-lorange-preview/). It has some good pics and information on his newest concept.
And check out Crudo’s Facebook page. for latest updates.
Crudo is about the passion of traditional cuisine from the Mediterranean coast with Japanese-inspired infusions. Crudo prides itself with authentic yet delightful ingredients with simple presentations.
Spice for Life
One of Crudo’s highlights is the trio dipping sauce selection served with several of our dishes such as sushi rolls and crudos. Chef Pascal Lorange replaced the traditional Asian served ginger, wasabi and soy sauce with the elegant, yet refined homemade trio:
• Kumquat ginger with cilantro and olive oil
• Five-spice harissa sauce
• Aged balsamic vinegar with soy sauce and spices
While being sophisticated in creation and originality, Chef Pascal Lorange presents the majority of his dishes as gluten-free, with the exception of a few desserts. The menu also features a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan options.
