Old Magic Pan Space/Friendship Heights
In the late 70s and early 80s there was a "Magic Pan" creperie on the second floor of the building on the SW corner of Jennifer Street and Wisconsin Avenue, NW. That place was part of a national chain that no longer exists. After that there was another place, perhaps French, that is no longer there, either. Anyone remember it? I am NOT thinking of the "Pleasant Peasant", which was on the second floor of Mazza Gallerie and also fronted on Jennifer Street, as I recall.
I believe it was the American Cafe brought up from Georgetown and Capital Hill. What was the deli sandwich shop was it Booiemonger's? Great cinnamon coffee. The Magic Pan had a cheese crepe that was deep fried it was cheese pala something? It was so good with their mandarin orange and almond salad.
Pleasant Peasant had a great soup as I recall. Bisquey. Does anyone remember what it was? They also gave you a salad I think, with lots of blue cheese, big enough to be a meal itself.
Loved that place. Not sure if they ever made any money.
