Passing through Denver International Airport earlier this week I noticed a restaurant in the B Gate area that had an under-construction storefront but was full of people. On closer inspection, it turned out to be the new airport venue: Crú A Wine Bar and, while they were waiting for the liquor license to come through, they were inviting passersby in for complimentary meals off menu.
We tasted the oatmeal and the breakfast tortilla and took a look at menus that include a wide variety of appetizers, individual-sized pizzas, cheese plates, sandwiches and desserts designed to accompany wine they’ll be serving by the glass, the bottle and in tasting flights.
The manager welcoming travelers in for the complimentary meals told me that he hoped they’d have the official opening – and the license – by December 26th, but Denver International Airport sent out a release saying Crú A Wine Bar was open, so it seems like the paperwork is now in order.
