our story

Welcome to crudo nudo. A restaurant like no other in the area. We lead with simple, delicious food – raw fish, pasta and tapas – made from the highest-quality ingredients. We feature crafted cocktails, handpicked wines from Spain and professional service in comfortable surroundings. We have fun and play music in the kitchen, both of which spill out into the room. A room, by the way, that is minimally adorned so the stars of the meal are the food on your plate and your partners at the table. So stop in, we’ll give you plenty to savor.

Eric has been inspired by some of the region’s top chefs, but he has definitely instilled his own mojo into crudo nudo. With influences a little bit Spanish, a little bit Asian, and not an ounce of pretention, Eric nods to tradition but adds his unique personal touch.

crudo vs nudo

In Spanish, crudo means raw – we extend the meaning to reflect our style and love of expertly prepared raw fish, artfully and minimally dressed with salt, spice and citrus. As for nudo, well, it’s a homemade word with a wink, inspired by our divine homemade noodles and pastas. Only the finest ingredients make the cut, and delicious things happen when crudo meets nudo. 

cocktails

A drink is a drink until you order one here.

crudo nudo’s crafted cocktails are as adventurous as the wizardry of their preparation. We’re partial to gin, but we’ll mix your favorites, too. Cheers!
