Craven

OPENED79 DAYS AGO

A new restaurant, bar and lounge in Midtown and is set to offer the neighborhood’s newest chic offering – Craven. It’s not always easy to find good places to eat in Midtown that aren’t tourist-traps but, Craven is a breath of fresh air in an otherwise bland landscape.

The Spot:

Avid-Instagrammers can get excited over their newest snap worthy spot here. The eclectic decor is adorned with vibrant botanical fabrics and Christian Lacroix palm and cactus fabric lounge chairs. Havana comes to mind when you step inside the spot which also has an equally inviting outdoor seating area. Lush greenery and tropical accents fill the remaining space and the high ceilings and large windows create a light and airy space – perfect for that all-important selfie.

 

The Food:

The menu is helmed by Executive Chef Scott Andriani and focuses around his own take on all-American favorites and popular comfort foods. The menu is divided into Craveables, Shareables, and Unforgettables.  Items include Buffalo cauliflower, wagyu beef brisket tartare and Philly cheesesteak grilled cheese. There’s also a variety of tacos like the pork shoulder Al Pastor and tuna tartare. And Unforgettables include items like a Southern fried chicken sandwich, backyard BBQ spare ribs and and steak frites.

In A Nutshell:

Craven comes from restaurateur Jeff Lam, who made a name for himself with Chinese Tuxedo, an upscale Chinatown restaurant which opened towards the end of last year and Ric Addison’s Hospitality Group whose spots include the AVA Rooftop Lounge at Dream Hotel.  The 3,000-square-foot space seats 133 people. There is also a 1,300-square-foot garden that seats 80 people.
