Easy on the eyes… and quick with a CRUcumber! The veteran CRU bar staff is bACK in action in their front bar and bACK! This year, they brought back cocktail director Matty McGarry in on the mix and welcomed new bartender Jess Goldfarb from Manhattan.


3. SAVORING THAT OYSTER SELECTION…

OYstaa
When it comes to these pearls… CRU has you covered. Continuing to have the most expansive osyter selection on island, our current obsession is their exclusive with local Simon Edwards and his “fifth bend” oysters (which double as the oysters used in Cisco Brewer’s “Oyster Stout” which CRU also pours on tap!)


4. ATTENDING THAT EPIC Rosé BRUNCH

Rosé… All… SUNday. (Especially during next weeks Nantucket Wine Festival!) So when you’re making your weekend plans for the 22nd, make sure put the CRU Rockin’ Rosé Brunch with Chateau D’Esclans Wines in the mix! Savor the full portfolio from Sacha Lichine and taste his new rosé… DJ Ryan Brown spinning all afternoon… this is one fab place to end the wine fest weekend with the view AND the party!
