About First Crush

❖       ❖      ❖

In February of 2002, Tom Derosa purchased and gutted the building at 32 Market Street, which had previously been the location of Robinson’s Market. Thus opened First Crush, Potsdam’s first (and only!) bistro/wine bar. In October of 2013, he sold the business to long-time manager Geralyn Barney. Shortly thereafter, Geri’s brother Alan came on board. Between the two of them, they have many years of experience cooking in fine dining restaurants.

"A nice surprise! I hadn't ever been there for dinner, just lunch. We had an excellent light dinner with the avocado/goat cheese tapas, and eggplant rolatinis. Everything was very full of flavor and we savored each bite! Lovely wine, great waiter, and we almost forgot we were in Potsdam!"

"This place is adorable. Staff is friendly and the food is good. The ambiance is light and airy, great out door light fills the small space. The sandwiches are well put together with fresh and healthy ingredients and the salads are big enough to share. The black bean soup I had was delicious and freshly made. The desserts are my favorite here accompanied by a delicious hot cup of cappuccino."
