Crush provides Chico with its own particular brand of Italian cuisine. Specializing in using local, seasonal ingredients, Crush’s menu includes as much creativity in its small plates as its entrees, from ahi nachos to osso bucco ravioli (and a gorgeous dessert menu as well). With a chic, modern atmosphere, Crush’s lounge is also a great place to enjoy its variety of wine, beer, and huge variety of cocktails.
