Crave Dessert Bar is coming (next week!)

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Yes Charlotte, the day you've all been waiting for: Crave Dessert Bar is opening next Tuesday. Finally, a spot in Uptown where you can just grab a glass of wine and some dessert and chill.


Located next to CANS at 500 W. 5th St., Crave promises to be the place you go to after dinner to satisfy your sweet tooth. It'll be the lounge you visit for a signature martini or a glass of that dessert wine that's so hard to find in restaurants.


Food selections range from cheese to cupcakes, your classic cheesecakes, smores, layered cakes. The wine and cheese selections will be "female-friendly" and they'll have already pre-selected wines to be paired with menu items.


According to general manager Scott Vines (pictured left with assistant general manager Sean Taffe), they'll be employing many students from Johnson and Wales University. "This should really be a conduit for Charlotte to have some window into what’s going on in modern dining as well as when it comes to confection and baking on a world class level because of the Johnson and Wales students, obviously using some of their skills and newest techniques on our desserts here. It’s a real good opportunity to stay on the cutting edge here."
