Savory Crepe recommendations

  • d

It isn't my craving, but a friend wonders about the best entree savory crepes in the city. Any ideas?

  1. Try the gallottes (sp?) at La Poeme, at Prince and Elizabeth St. I haven't had them for a while but my memory is they were excellent. Also love the ambience there.

      I heartily second La Poeme. Our crepes were very tasty, but that place has an atmosphere that makes it truly unique. It's a wonderful place to let an afternoon slip by, and they serve the best homemade bread (sort of sweet, sort of savory) and herbal infusion teas.

    2. Another recommendation: would savory blintzes fit the bill? If so, Twelve Chairs, on MacDougal between Houston and Prince, is worthwhile.

        I've never heard of a savory blintze. What kind of fillings do they have?

          They have Turkey and mushroom, Salmon, and Caviar.

      2. Dean & Delucca on Prince and B'way now has freshly made crepes to go. Both savory and sweet. I've only had the sweet and it was nice. I could see that the chef making them really took pride and care in his crepe creations. They sell from 4.50 - 7.00 depending on how many indgredients you want.
