If the popularity of last Saturday's pop-up dinner inside chef Cullen Campbell's soon-to-open new Crudo location still leaves doubts as to his new restaurant's appeal, Campbell has created additional excitement with the recent hiring of the bar's owner, Micah Olson.
"He's whipping up some killer cocktails," Campbell tells me.
Campbell tells me he'll continue to do pre-opening pop-ups inside the new Crudo, at 3603 East Indian School Road (Indian School Road and 36th Street and formerly the Back Street Wine Salon), in the days ahead. To make reservations for a Crudo pop-up or for the completed Crudo, call 480-353-8867 or email email@example.com.
