Parent company Kaskaid Hospitality stirred many of today’s hot trends into Crave, including an exhibition kitchen with wood-fired pizza oven, sushi bar and glass-enclosed wine room. The extensive menu also hits several trend buttons, with flatbreads, sliders, sushi rolls and a roster of gluten-free choices. The bulk of business is done in the evening, when some locations boast a DJ or live music. Still, Crave makes an effort to be family-friendly, with units frequently built inside or next to shopping malls and flexible dine-in, takeout and offsite catering options.
