ABOUT CRU OYSTER BAR NANTUCKET:
CRU is a premier oyster bar with a full menu of coastal cuisine that offers modern riffs on classic New England dishes. Since opening in May 2012, CRU has earned a reputation for having the most expansive raw bar selection on Nantucket and exceptionally pristine seafood with local catch such as lobster, fish, oysters and littleneck clams playing a starring role in every dish. The restaurant is also well known for its award-winning wine and cocktail menu, which complements the summer ocean flavors perfectly, and for its iconic and picturesque island waterfront views.
CRU takes its name from the French word cru, which has several meanings, one of them is raw, as in poisson cru (raw fish). It also denotes a top-quality vineyard whose wines reflect the unique flavors of the particular piece of land the vineyard occupies. Likewise, CRU Oyster Bar brings the flavors of the New England ocean to its tables like no other restaurant in the region. In addition, the name is often a play-on-words for "crew" and the restaurateurs often point out that the nautical reference to a tight-knit team is right on point for their restaurant.
Said Managing Partner Jane Stoddard: "Our partners believed the time was right to write a cookbook. We needed guidance, counsel and someone highly regarded in Literary Publishing circles, to shepherd our CRU wonderful cuisine; award winning wines and talented customer service experience. We were very fortunate that one of our frequent customers, Alan Morell, (highly respected Literary and Broadcast Licensing Agent), shared our vision and represented our dream cookbook sale to prestigious publisher MACMILLAN, ST. MARTINS PRESS. Alan was an incredible champion of our business for this project."
Said Agent Alan Morell: "Having been a summer resident since 1981, I have seen first-hand, Nantucket go through various cultural changes, where today, THE NANTUCKET BRAND is nationally recognized. I felt CRU Oyster Bar Restaurant food cuisine under Chef Erin and Management by Jane and Carlos epitomized the NANTUCKET BRANDING experience and desired the CRU book for the broad audience; for people off island to feel that Nantucket Branding experience year-round and those on island, to be a part of the Nantucket experience day-to-day. We accomplished this with writer collaborator Martha Murphy and with St. Martin's Press Senior Editor BJ Berti. Our goal is to tie in St. Martin's Press capabilities nationally for the CRU OYSTER BAR COOKBOOK and in addition, private label CRU food products for shopping channels HSN, QVC and EVINE, where we have our Agency clients works and then to retail."
