Husband-and-wife chef team Debbie Lyn and
Marco Morillo filled a void in Carroll Gardens by opening their
gourmet prepared foods shop, Crave, on July 15.
Lyn’s impressive credentials include time served in the Manhasset, L.I., Payard Patisserie and Bistro, and Manhattan’s Nobu. Morillo is applying his experience earned at Manhattan’s Bandol Bistro and at Palladin.
The shop offers appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pastas, main courses, desserts, sides and even freshly pureed baby food (pictured), for takeout or to eat in.
The Crave prix fixe weekend brunch menu ($15.95), served 11 am to 4 pm, also offers an array of substantial entrees - from French toast sandwich with mixed berry and honey compote to a pan-seared rib eye steak.
Their "Occasions To Go" off-premise catering division supplies everything you’ll need to be the host with the most, from utensils and plates to dessert and wine.
Crave is located at 570 Henry St., between Carroll and Summit streets, and they deliver to Carroll Gardens, Red Hook, Cobble Hill, Park Slope and Brooklyn Heights. Entrees: $6.95-$13.95. Crave accepts American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa. Closed Mondays. For more information, call (718) 643-0361.
