Chez Le Chef
Rumor has it that chef Federic Piepenburg has trouble parting with his creations, which include beautiful gingerbread houses and luscious black forest cake. As cook and head pastry chef, he creates everything on the menu and even takes customer's orders. He is quite a sight with his tall hat and curled white beard. Brunches are substantial and include omelets and French toast and dinners are enjoyed by candlelight, making Chez Le Chef a romantic spot to visit.
I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone. The service was poor, Chef Frederic was curt and rude, and the eggs were runny and covered in what looked like a whole bottle of spice.
It's also terribly overpriced.
I had a mini bridal shower for my sister at my apartment a few weeks ago. I was going to cook everything myself, but then realized that may be a disaster so I thought better. I ordered food and desserts from CLC. I had been once before for brunch and had a great meal. Everyone at the shower was very impressed. The food was beautiful and delicious. They also delivered and set everything up, which made my job a lot easier.
I went here for brunch with a friend. I thought the way this place was decorated was amazing that is the whole reason we chose this place. I have to say it was great. The salmon omelet was so heavenly! Great service, I'll be back
I am so happy we stepped in your wonderful place! It is filled with so much love and the selection of sweet things is exquisite. This is not New York anymore, it feels like a fairy-tale experience, as if for a moment you are a part of an old, very beautiful bedtime story where everyone is kind and loving and miracles happen on every corner. Loved every second and bit of Chez le Chef. Thank you for this amazing place! Delicious adorable and so rare!
I really lucked out a few weeks ago. I was running errands and got super hungry. I smelled something wafting towards me and noticed it was coming from Chez Le Chef. I headed in and ordered the french toast, which was just amazing. One of my errands to do was to order my moms 60th birthday cake. I decided to fore go the bakery she requested and had it done here instead. The cake turned out beautiful and was so delicious. I am so glad I stumbled upon this place!
My mid-day dessert and coffee was wonderful! I enjoyed sitting among the eclectic sights in the cafe; hearing the music and the wonderful hospitality! My dessert was a fabulous chocolate mousse- just made before I walked in the door. Danke!
