Crisp Wine Bar & Eatery

CRISP offers the perfect atmosphere for an after-work drink coupled with a solid wine and craft beer menu and friendly, attentive staff. Unfortunately, the food is inconsistent and confusing. Italian fare is reminiscent of overly seasoned Olive Garden items, while the pizza is too complicated to be appreciated for its crispy, stone-deck-fired crust. Steer clear of the creamy pasta dishes and overwrought pizza, and you'll probably find yourself enjoying a relaxing meal in the chic, modern space nestled in the Heights. Check out the daily specials, which knock a few bucks off the wine or beer during certain hours for an incredibly reasonable night out.
