Anyone who finds themselves craving Thai food after leaving the bars this weekend will probably need to hit up Lower Greenville's late-night standby Nandina, because the Quadrangle's new fast-casual, late-night spot CrushCraft Thai won't be opening today as previously planned.
Owner Jack Nuchkasem, who's running the show at CrushCraft alongside chef Paul Singhapong, issued a statement explaining the delay:
On behalf of the entire team at CrushCraft, we regret to announce that our opening has been pushed back about two weeks. During our mock service, we realized that the current point of sale system would not be acceptable for our fast casual format. We want our guests to have the best possible experience when dining at CrushCraft, so we feel it important to implement a new system. Thank you to our friends & family for the support during this pre-opening process. To our future customers : we apologize for the delay & look forward to serving you. Thank you in advance for your understanding & patience. Please stay tuned as we work out the kinks and prepare for a successful opening.When CrushCraft does finally open its doors, expect a menu that combines classic Thai takeout fare alongside more chef-driven dishes, plus a full bar pouring sake, soju, and Southeast Asian beers as well as local brews; the restaurant plans to be open until 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
