When two o’clock rolls around every afternoon I start formulating my plans for the evening. The weeknights are precious and should be taken seriously. And while a quiet night at home is sometimes needed, catching up with friends over dinner and a tall glass of wine is better. Take my word for it, and enjoy your evening at CRISP Wine, Beer & Eatery.

Last week I chose CRISP as my happy hour destination. CRISP is tucked away in the Shady Acres neighborhood in the Heights. The dimmed and lively atmosphere provides a relaxing and social setting for both group gatherings and intimate evenings alike.


CRISP’s happy hour is from 3-7 pm daily. The restaurant also offers various drink and food specials throughout the week, including Friday Night Flights for just $6 per paddle. CRISP uses an Enomatic system to provide guests with fresh wine and beer samples. Diners can purchase a Tasting Card and see the unique flight system in action. You can learn more about the CRISP Enomatic method here.


My date and I started our meal with the Baked Goat Cheese and Marinara Appetizer. The dip was a hot and gooey explosion of Italian goodness, and was accompanied by their famous “Drunken Garlic Bread”. It. Was. Heavenly. The truffle fries are also must-orders. Trust me on that one!

Next came the pizza. The pies are perfectly cooked and the crust is to-die-for. I highly recommend the North Beach pizza for all you meat lovers out there. The Shady Acres and Classic Margherita pizzas are also solid choices.

The Death by Brownie dessert was a delicious cherry on top! We agreed that CRISP’s drinks and dinner surpassed all our expectations. I hope to return soon and sit out on the back patio when the weather gets cooler. I recommend this place to anyone with a desire to try new drinks and soak up the alcohol with some classic and phenomenal Italian food.
