Food & Review • Denver 10


Cru House Salad: mixed greens, gorgonzola & lemon vinaigrette

Fried Brie: honey and black peppercorns

Pear & Gorgonzola Pizza: comice pears, caramelized onions, honey, parmesan & basil

Recently I had the privilege to have a girls wine night with a good friend. We decided to go to a new local wine bar called Cru' A Wine Bar. The bar was warm, inviting, and pleasantly casual. The wine was wonderful and the food even better! I enjoyed the Sexy Red Flight, a collection of three different wines to sample, and my friend Kim enjoyed the Magnificent Merlots. What a fun way to sample a bunch of wines without being tied down to only one huge glass of wine.

Kim and I then picked a few dishes to share off their Sharing Menu. We indulged in the Cru' House Salad, the Fried Brie, and the Pear and Gorgonzola Pizza. All three were divine. My favorite was the pizza, the pears and caramelized onions were the perfection and the gorgonzola gave it that perfect savory kick, YUM! I can't wait to go back and sample some more exotic wines accompanied by simply delicious food.




  1. Sounds like a fun and yummy night out! Wish I could drink wine...the sulfates give me a terrible headache! :) Kathy

  2. You've got to be kidding me.... heaven on earth. The fried brie almost made me scream. Lol!
