Crust in Downtown Chandler Is Now Open
The third Valley location of Crust, a locally owned mini-chain of Italian restaurant, is now open in downtown Chandler. Located at 10 North San Marcos Plaza, the restaurant can be found on the southeast corner of the Crowne Plaza San Marcos hotel.
Like the other Crust restaurants in Scottsdale and Phoenix, Crust Chandler serves a menu of New York-inspired Italian food. That means you can look for pizzas, appetizers, salads, pastas, and other entrees. All of Crust's pizza can be ordered as either individual pizzas, 20-inch round pies with thin crust, or Sicilian-style.
The restaurant all offers daily lunch specials such as two slices of pizza and a drink for $5.95 or lunch entrees like penne a la vodka and chicken marsala. During happy hour, Crust also serves $3 beer, $5 wines by the glass, and $6 cocktails.
Crust's newest location also is located above the soon-to-open basement bar called The Ostrich. The speakeasy-style bar is being headed up by well-known local mixologist Brandon Casey, who told us earlier this year he plans to create a menu of "super-simple classic cocktails" and offer tableside Old Fashioned service.
On Saturday, September 26, Crust in Chandler will celebrate its grand opening from 3 to 8 p.m. with drink specials and free garlic knots with any purchase. Attendees can also enter to win free pizza for a year.
