No longer contemplating a move to the Eastside, Jason Wilson is keeping Crush in Seattle. After fielding offers on the space, the chef says he's taking the Central District restaurant off the market. "As much as we entertained moving, it was ultimately impossible to think of Crush anywhere else," Wilson tells Eater. "In fact it was our son that said one day, "Crush is that house and the house is Crush."
After experimenting with a "Taste" concept, Wilson says the menu will return to its original format, with starters of raw, chilled, warm, and crisp dishes and entrees featuring fish, meat, and game. The 10 to 12 course $125 tasting menu remains and changes seasonally and often.
Crush celebrates ten years of business on February 20. "Our intention is to continue to grow and evolve our food and the experience in its original space," Wilson says. "We have created a tasting menu of old favorites form each year of our growth and will be featuring it throughout the night."
