If you’ve been to Compass Rose for dinner or drinks, you pretty much know immediately that we’re all about travel, meeting new people, exploring the world, and eating the best food you can imagine. (Or at least we hope you know that!) But if you sit back and see what's happening beyond our kitchen and bar, you'll see that Compass Rose is about sharing these experiences with family, friends, and everyone you love. Embedded in our menu is a deep appreciation for sharing: We're about going out into the world to bring back new tastes, new memories, and new insight to share. It's our hope that the people we love can experience the same things we've experienced. When we get to do this, it makes the memories that much more rich and satisfying.
During my three years in Russia, I learned that the only ways to stay warm during Russian winters are vodka and the hospitality of good friends.
With all of that said, we’d like to welcome you to WanderCrust: Compass Rose's blog about our food, drinks, wanderlust, and travel. We’re recruiting our entire staff to share their experiences with you: Our favorite dishes at Compass Rose, what it’s like to work in the restaurant industry, our passions and talents, and amazing travel tips. Maybe a recipe or two.
