Crust Pizza Kitchen Introduces Late-Night Happy Hour

One year ago, Crust Pizza Kitchen owners Michael and Meg Griffin relocated their flagship restaurant to the Komorowski building on Professor Ave. in Tremont.

The new location allowed the restaurant to expand and add a full bar, tables and new menu items. Known for its hand-tossed, scratch-made pizza, Crust has landed on the Daily Meal list of "The Best Pizza in Every State," a Food Network compilation of the “Best Pizzas in America’s Biggest Cities” and other “best of” lists since the expansion.

Now, it has just introduced a special late-night happy hour that takes place from 10 p.m. to midnight on Tuesdays through Saturdays.

“After a year at the Professor Avenue address, it’s clear the community is really embracing the changes,” says owner Michael Griffin in a press release announcing the reverse happy hour. “We’ve been listening to patrons, and they’re receptive to more. There’s no doubt in my mind that a $3 draft beer, $3 monster pizza slice or 50 cent wings can be a welcomed end to a big day at the office or a big night out on the town.”

Six dollar cocktails and $5 glasses of wine round out the weekend and late-night happy hour specials, and the place still offers happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

The restaurant is also now open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, and it has created patio seating on the sidewalk frontage near the street.

“[On Sundays,] you can watch a Browns game or complete the New York Times crossword you picked up from our second floor neighbor, Visible Voice Books,” says Griffin. “Or [you can] just enjoy doing a lot of nothing. It’s perfect weather to grab an outside table with a view of the neighborhood, settle in with friends and a slice and postpone all thoughts of Monday.”
