The heavy-hitters behind Stir Crazy like to bring the “kitchen right out into the dining room” for an eating experience like no other. A pan-Asian concept with “bold and delicious” flavors, the chain also features 35 wines by the glass that go well with the Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. With 14 full-service units, the most recent opening in Wisconsin, the chain is ready to bring their unique style to Florida and Kansas. Special events, cooking demos and an interactive Web site help fuel the brand.
