Within the shiny new West Ave development in River Oaks, Cru’ will likely be a favorite place to see and be seen. From floor to ceiling one is surrounded by a wall of wine bottles that is sure to make you smile. If you’re new to the fine art of vinification or a seasoned sommelier you will feel right at home. With the offering of thirty or more wines by the glass and over three hundred bottles to choose from, Cru’ takes their interest in wine to a new level. Experience the menu of wine flights By Lisa June they offer and you will be on your way to a world of wine empowered with taste and knowledge without the attitude. Oh yes and let’s not forgot the delicious menu . My favorite is the pear and Gorgonzola pizza. Matt will be most helpful in choosing a perfect pairing with your choice.
