Crave Opens FL Restaurant, Its 7th U.S. Location

The Minneapolis-based restaurant chain has rapidly expanded since opening its first location in Minnesota in 2007.

Crave said Tuesday that it will open a new restaurant in Coral Gables, Florida on December 9.

The location will be the Minneapolis-based restaurant chain's seventh restaurant nationwide and its second in Florida. The new location features more than 9,000 square feet of space that includes private and semi-private dining rooms, and a large, adjacent outdoor patio.

In 2007, Crave opened its first location in Minnesota. It has rapidly expanded since then and now has four locations within the state-including one at the Mall of America, another at the Shops at West End development in St. Louis Park, one in downtown Minneapolis, and one at the Galleria in Edina.

In addition to its locations in Minnesota and Florida, Crave also has one restaurant in Omaha, Nebraska.

Crave offers a full sushi bar and other menu items ranging from steaks to fresh seafood, pastas, salads, and fire-baked pizzas.

Kam Talebi, CEO of Crave's parent company, Kaskaid Hospitality, was named one of the “200 Minnesotans You Should Know” in the December issue of Twin Cities Business.
