Crush (formerly Crush 201) is Celestino's latest restaurant incarnation — but his first entry into fine dining. For several weeks a banner hung on the old Bank of America building's second floor, asking the citizens of Chico to name an upcoming restaurant using a website. It is unclear if citizens helped name downtown's latest addition.

Crush 201 changed its name to Crush, on account of a trademark infringement with a Roseville restaurant named Crush28.

2008-01-24 18:10:07   I found the restaurant to resemble a 1980's Las Vegas Night Club. Food was good but expensive. Figure around $150.00 for two people. Good place for drinks but too moisy for dinner.


2008-05-21 14:34:15   Definetly NOT $150 for two people, went there last night and for two drinks, two salads, two of their pizzas it was $60. —

2008-07-01 13:48:55   I went there for drinks and appetizers, and found it to be on the upper end of typical $$ for Chico meals. Food was yummy and the drinks were perfect. We shared some of the bread sticks with Marinara sauce and there was more than enough for two people. I would love to go back. —annsteckel

Just seems like it, tried to go there once just to see what the big deal was, no food is worth waiting an hour for, especially pasta which is so easy to make at home and for 1/4 the price. Am I wrong or is this also a big wine drinking location where people go to attempt to validate their intelligence and worth to others by displaying their knowledge of wine?

I Love Celestino's but Crush seems like it belongs in Sacramento, not Chico, but it seems to be doing well so very cool. —

2009-07-25 20:05:54   Was there on valentines day 2009. Bad service, long Wait, decent food, over priced, bad parking, 1 star —

2010-02-12 14:10:00   I did not feel the service, food, drinks, and atmosphere were worth the price tag but it was not terrible. For the money you would spend going to crush you could easily get a nicer dinner and drinks. Figure around 10$ for cocktails and around 15 for appetizer and 15-25$ for an entree. —
