Cru — the restaurant in the lower level of the Gap building, which drew a loyal following with its eclectic menu, and despite its less-than-visible entrance — appears to have closed less than a year after opening.
The phone has been “not in service” since yesterday. The website goes directly to a Google page. And at 3 p.m. this afternoon, the door was locked and there were no signs of life.
Westport restaurants sometimes arrive with great fanfare, then flame out quickly. Cru seems to be the latest addition to that unfortunate list.
