The Crudo Craze hits Los Angeles


Where tartare once dominated LA menus, crudo is now posed to become Los Angeles' next big dish. 

Crudo, meaning raw in Italian, can refer to a number of meat, fish and vegetable dishes with a variety of preparations.  In LA, some of the top chefs have been experimenting with flavor profiles, featuring crudo style dishes with Mediterranean accents such as olive oil, citrus and fresh herbs, alongside more traditional Asian style flavorings incorporating ginger, wasabi and soy sauce.

Crudo dishes offers diners a healthy, light dining option that can showcase a variety of flavors and preparations.  As such, crudo style dishes have begun popping up in a number of LA's top restaurants ranging from Peruvian to Italian to Japanese.
