It's a restaurant, it's a bar, it's a cellar door, and it's serving all the food and booze you desire

Cru's bifold windows open wide onto James Street, revealing Cru's partying crew partaking in Jason Walker's menu and drinks from a very fine list. Walker turns out a cracking duck liver parfait, set in a teardrop ramekin and sealed with set butter. It's oh-so silken on the palette, and comes with toasted sourdough, cornichons and house-pickled grapes. Cru's local and international cheese list will keep fromage fans smiling too. Wander behind the bar space to Cru's retail cellar where experts are on hand to assist with selecting fine wine and spirits, craft beer and Champagnes that line the shelves from floor to dizzying top-shelf heights.
