Description

OC Weekly's Description

Crave Restaurant in downtown Santa Ana sells sandwiches. And as word gets around that Crave is Café Chiarini resurrected, the lunch-time queue will get longer and longer. The food is cribbed crumb-for-crumb from Café Chiarini’s menu. The sourdough is the basis for almost all that you consume—this is bread for the ages. Baked by Chef Judy Fleenor and supplied in excess, it has a crunchy outer crust mottled golden, shiny as though it were buffed with Turtle Wax. The tangy interior fluff inside is as moist as cake. Sit down and they give you a basket of it with butter. Order a soup and you get at least two more crusty hunks to rip and dip in the liquid. And, of course, there are the sandwiches, which—because the bread is hand-sliced—can be comically oversized at times, but great always.
