CrushCraft Thai Coming to the Quadrangle in JanuaryBy Farah Fleurima
December 3, 2013
The Quadrangle is about to get an infusion of Southeast Asian flavor. A new concept called CrushCraft Thai Street Eats strives to bring quick, chef-driven food to the Uptown masses. The fast-casual eatery, slated for a mid-January opening, is the joint project of Jack Nuchkasem, who will serve as general manager, and Paul Singhapong, who’ll be executive chef. Singhapong helped open Cru Food and Wine Bar and also served as a chef at highly rated The French Room. He’s also rubbed elbows in the kitchen with celeb chefs Kent Rathbun and Dean Fearing.
CrushCraft’s menu will include three sections, one featuring Thai street food, one featuring Thai classics like papaya salad and a chef-crafted section with entrees that’ll push the cuisine's boundaries. With a bar menu full of sake and soju and an interior design that’ll aim for an earthy yet sophisticated flair, CrushCraft sounds like it’ll fit nicely in its Uptown surroundings.
