Long time, no chat. I spent last week in New York City getting in the holiday spirit! I’ll be heading to Central and South America at the end of the week, so I needed some cooler temps + Christmas cheer in my system before I leave!
Since I will be gone many of the days leading up to Christmas, shopping for everyone on my ever-growing list has been stressing me out. Luckily, I had the opportunity to go to The Summit at Fritz Farm this week – in a matter of a couple of hours, I was loaded down with amazing gifts! What a relief, y’all.
What is The Summit at Fritz Farm?
The Summit at Fritz Farm is a $156 million mixed-use development at the crossroads of Nicholasville Road and Man O’ War Boulevard. From amazing dining, to shopping, to living – this is the place to be in Lexington, KY!
The iconic part of shopping at The Summit at Fritz Farm is that it is a one-stop destination. They have it all!
After shopping, Jude and I had worked up a mean appetite; we decided to check out CRÚ Food and Wine Bar for the first time.
I left questioning myself.
I had to know — how on Earth was this my first time at CRÚ? It was delicious! Jude and I both gave it two thumbs up.
Now — the food!
I must say, first and foremost, that I was very impressed by the wine selection at CRÚ; to say that they stood up to their reputation would be an understatement. Overwhelmed by the many pours I wanted to try, I opted for a flight (or two!). This was the perfect way to sample six of the wines. Apart from gorgeous table-side presentation, they were simply divine! I found several new favorites that I cannot wait to serve at dinner parties.
We started with the cheese fondue. Fontina + Truffle Tartufo + Apple + Pear + Herb Flatbread + Brussels Sprouts + Haricot Verts.
It was then time for Steamed Prince Edward Mussels (lemongrass + white wine + tomatoes + basil).
Next were the Lobster + Shrimp Potstickers (roasted Fresno chiles + spicy lemon sauce).
No night at CRÚ is complete without chocolate fondue. Be still, my heart.
The next time you are in Lexington, be sure to head over to The Summit at Fritz Farm and visit my friends at CRÚ – tell ’em that I sent ya!
As always: Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living!
Y’all come back now, ya hear?
