Reporter Food: Braised Short Rib Pasta at Crispelli’s in Berkley

Reporter Food: Braised Short Rib Pasta at Crispelli’s in Berkley

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Aug. 27, 2018)

Berkley, MI- Crispelli’s Bakery and Pizzeria has locations in Berkley, West Bloomfield and Troy.  I recently had a chance to visit their Berkley location and enjoy their creamy, flavorful braised short rib pasta.

This is a creation of cavatelli pasta, wild mushroom cream sauce, wilted spinach and parmigiano reggiano served with a side of asparagus and a fresh baked roll.

The pasta was good, and the bits of meat were tender and delicious.  I was quite impressed with the roll, which showed me that Crispelli’s reputation for fine baking is definitely well-earned.

The restaurant has classy lunch and dinner options, but is also known for their breads and pizzas, which I will no doubt be writing about soon.

For this visit I also had dessert – one of my favorites – crème brulee.

Crispellis has three locations:

28939 Woodward Ave, Berkley, MI

6690 Orchard Lake Rd, West Bloomfield, MI

645 E Big Beaver, Troy, MI
