Hooray for Thai food: CrushCraft Thai opens today in the Quadrangle at 11 a.m. Originally slated to open its doors last Monday, the new fast-casual concept pushed things back a week after realizing their original point-of-sales system was, er, a P.O.S.
CrushCraft is a joint venture from Thai natives Jack Nuchkasem, a former hospitality exec, and chef Paul Singhapong, who used to run the kitchen at Cru Wine Bar and also worked at long-lost Crescent Court hot spot Beau Nash. Besides a menu that includes both takeout staples like pad Thai and green papaya salad, there will also be a rotating selection of more cheffy dishes and a bar serving up Southeast Asian beers, sake and soju.
Perhaps best of all, CrushCraft will be open till 3 a.m. Thursday through Saturday; that's pretty exciting news for the rather stagnant Quadrangle, which is home to long-time tenants like Dream Cafe and Momo's but hasn't seen much fresh action since the BBC (British Beverage Company) opened back in October 2012.
