In this very special edition of SFG we’ve dedicated our pages to all things edible. Taking our coverage full circle, we’d like to take a moment to highlight a restaurant that is turning love of food into greater good.

CRAVE Restaurant, located in the luxurious Village of Merrick Park, is a sprawling venue with something for everyone. Amenities include 2 Chef’s Tables for signature experiences, a vast patio with couch seating, private party areas and a full sushi bar. Perfect for a cocktail after a long hard day, CRAVE is fresh and vibrant with a menu as diverse as America. Diners in the mood for light fare will delight in an assortment of choices such as sushi rolls, grilled ceviche or Mediterranean hummus. Comfort food fans will not be disappointed with satisfying dishes like spaghetti & meatballs or macaroni & cheese.

Diversity isn’t the only thing that sets this restaurant apart- CRAVE is committed to working with charities to make a difference in the community. CRAVE has helped many charities since opening just 8 months ago-  like United Way, Gables Community Foundations, Aspira Foundation and now Amigos for Kids. Offering a ‘CRAVE Cares’ menu that helps local non-profit organizations by donating a percentage of the sales from CRAVE cares menu items is just one of the ways CRAVE gives back. CRAVE’s Marketing Manager, Christina Ward, is known for helping local charities through her “High Heels and Handshakes” events benefitting local and global nonprofits. In August, CRAVE hosted its first HHH event and the impact of their combined philanthropic reputations proved successful- raising funds for Badges of Courage and collecting hundreds of shoes for Dress for Success. Next on the radar for contributions is Neat Stuff, then Breast Cancer research in October and Camillus House in November.

This culture of caring is obvious when interacting with anyone from CRAVE. Clifton Carmody, the General Manager, is a gracious host that makes everyone feel welcome and appreciated. Their Executive Chef, Josh Wahler, has created signature brunch items worthy of a try like bacon polenta and green basil pancakes with Korean Short Ribs. CRAVE also has a Hot Ladies Night every Wednesday night usually packed with Gables business women looking their best.

Bottom line-CRAVE will tug at your heart strings while tickling your belly.
