CRÜ Urban Lounge
Here at Exclusive_Eats our mission is to expose Atlanta young professionals to the Trendiest and Tastiest restaurants in the city! We are pleased to announce that our most recent discovery, CRÜ Urban Lounge, is a glamorous new addition to Atlanta’s culinary community. This Manhattan style bar is creatively lit and provides a sultry dining atmosphere. If you are looking for incredible Happy Hour deals, you definitely should stop by CRÜ Urban Lounge. The festive neighborhood lounge features a vast selection of eclectic beers, worldly wines and premier liquors! In addition CRÜ Urban Lounge has a menu full of delicious small plates that are perfect for sharing. CRÜ Urban Lounge is by far one of the best places for any young professional to wind down after a long day’s work. The best part about CRÜ Urban Lounge is definitely the food. The most popular item on the menu is the Iceberg Wedge Salad ($6.00). This dish is a large helping of iceberg lettuce, smothered in fresh diced tomatoes, chives, and crunchy bacon crumbles. The entire salad is then topped with CRÜ Urban Lounge’s mouth-watering blue cheese dressing. During my visit to CRÜ Urban Lounge, I was fortunate enough to try the menu’s Eggplant Bites ($6.00). These caramelized bits of heaven are circular disks of eggplant topped with roasted tomatoes, melted mozzarella cheese, and a delicious balsamic reduction sauce. If you are looking for a tasty appetizer I definitely suggest the Wedge Salad and Eggplant Bites. Another menu item at CRÜ Urban Lounge that I really enjoyed was the CRÜ BLT ($7.00). This unique and delicious sandwich features thick Texas toast, a garlic mayonnaise spread called aioli, several strips of premium bacon, crisp lettuce and two perfect slices of pickled green tomatoes! This sandwich is tangy and delicious! I highly recommend trying it when you visit CRÜ Urban Lounge. I really appreciated that the food at CRÜ Urban Lounge is tasty and affordable! The most expensive item on the menu is only $8.00 (¼ Burger with Spiced Tomato Jam)! This is perfect for all of us working people on a budget! If you can’t get to CRÜ Urban Lounge after work, you can always stop by for brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Brunch at CRÜ Urban Lounge features an amazing menu with dishes like French Toast with sweet ricotta & peaches ($8) and Open Face Biscuits ($9) that are topped with Andouille sausage, egg, cheese, sour cream and chive garnish. You can even step onto the wild side at CRÜ Urban Lounge during brunch and try a side of their Jalapeno Grits. Brunch drinks include the Bailey’s Caramel Macchiato ($10.00) and Bloody Mary’s with CRÜ Urban Lounge’s very own spicy Bloody Mary mix infused with oranges. All in all, this is an awesome, versatile bar that’s classy and affordable. @Exclusive_Eats deems CRÜ Urban Lounge a definite must try!
