After months of construction delays, slider concept and infused liquor bar Cray Eatery & Drinkery is set to open in the Wonder Bread Building on Friday.

The bar and restaurant is the brainchild of Crystal Park-a part-time bartender and former Huntington Bank employee with a panache for traveling the globe. It was from these excursions she says she realized the mini-burger concept would give her a platform to showcase the flavors she loved while traveling abroad.

The 14-slider menu (ranging from $3 to $4.50) features options like garlic infused duck with sweet and spicy pineapple slaw, a chicken and waffle slider with sage infused maple syrup and a Jager infused burger with sweet Jager barbecue sauce and caramelized onions. There are also variations with quinoa, black beans, chicken and turkey.

Side dishes include fries with applewood seasoning ($3.50), sweet potato tater tots with marshmallow sauce ($4) and fried green tomatoes with chipotle aioli ($4.50).

But Park's real pride and joy is behind the bar in the nearly two dozen glass jars where she's infusing a variety of alcohol flavors-like Slim Jim bourbon (look for it in a Breakfast Manhattan with coffee pecan bitters and sage maple syrup), smoked ginger vodka (her personal favorite) and rum raisin (inspired by a trip to Bali). Vodka is also infused with flavors like gummy bears and Werthers Originals.

You'll see infusions featured on Cray's signature cocktail and martini list. There's an Aviation made with hibiscus infused gin, Luxardo, Creme de Violette, lemon and simple syrup. The Dirty Filthy martini is made with garlic infused vodka, bacon blue cheese stuffed olives and olive juice. During brunch on weekends (11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday), bloody marys come with a choice of infused vodkas (with options like garlic, pickle and peppercini).

"The bar was the first thing I imagined," Park says. "When I go out to eat, I like to sit at the bar. So I wanted to get as many seats around the bar as I could. I wanted my bar to be the most comfortable bar." The showpiece, black granite bar has seating for two dozen around a sort of pentagon shape. There are also eight beers on tap, including a Dunkel Weizenbock brewed by North High Brewing specifically for Cray.

Park is hoping to attract the sports crowd, too, with flat screens that'll be tuned into the NFL and Buckeyes games this fall. The exposed brick, 2,500-square-foot space has seating for 83, and customers can park, free of charge, in the neighboring parking lot.

"It's exactly what I had imagined," Park says. "We've had a lot of fun with it in here."
