MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Since its arrival on the scene, Krupa Grocery has been a hit, and thereby, earned a steady roster of regulars. Owner Peter Cooke's cooking is so simple and perfectly calibrated, that it’s hard to miss. Get things started with country toast, served alongside delicious spreads like smashed pea and fava bean with pecorino, tarragon vinaigrette and pea leaves; or whipped lardo with radish, caper salad and parsley. For dinner, try buttermilk-fried skate set over cracked hominy with basil seeds and salsa verde. Brunch is also a slam dunk here and is alone worth the visit. Designed with a long industrial bar that's ideal for solo eating or lingering couples, the interior is effortlessly cool, but the place to be come summer is undoubtedly the gorgeous backyard.
