Cru 16: Hope and Jason Ruhe, Owners of Brick & Mortar

By April 12, 2019Podcast

A true Power Restaurant couple, Hope and Jason have been hustling the Tampa Bay food scene almost all their lives. They’d been everywhere before starting their own successful business: In Bloom Catering in 2004. Ten years later, St. Pete didn’t know what hit it when they opened Brick & Mortar and started attracting national attention for their exquisite food.
Jen and Torrey have been great friends with the Ruhes ever since they designed Cru Cellars’ first food menu (as well as the Northern Michigan Cru menu, which is a story in itself). Hear how they’ve escaped fires, shipwrecks, and drunken college students in their efforts to deliver great food to Tampa Bay.
