La Crepe Michel
The proprietor-chef Claudie Zamet-Wilcox has devoted her life to creating delicious food at this Old Town bistro. Tucked away in a shadowy alleyway, La Crepe Michel has seating for 80 in two rooms. One appetizer is a velvety Pate de Campagne Maison or you might like a bowl of the Soupe du Jour. Entrees include a crustless Quiche Lorraine and savory crepes. The chef tops sandwiches with fromage and broils them to bubbling perfection. For dessert there are more crepes and a Mousse Au Chocolat.
First of all, it's La Crêpe Michel. I don't know where the above spelling has come from. Frankly, its very confusing and should not be as such.
The Hours of Operation is incorrect. It should read:
Tuesday-Sunday Lunch 11:30 am to 2:00 pm
Tuesday-Saturday Dinner 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Everything else is fine. Please go to http://www.lacrepemichel.com for more information and details.
La Crêpe Michel
There are many things to love about this lush bistro and restaurant. Start with a fine wine list, available by the bottle or glass. Appetizers are fresh, with interesting sauces and garnishes. The meals subtle and feature many dishes on conventional or buckwheat crepes. Deserts also feature crepes, as well as favourites such as creme brulee. Dessert wines are also a must. Take your time and relax with the knowledgeable and relaxed staff.
Not only is the authentic French food here as good as there is anywhere, the prices are very reasonable. Also, the owner/chief chef has a Ph.D. from Purdue and based on discussions with her, has a very good understanding of good nutrition. If you want food that is healthy as well as delicious and reasonable, this is the place!
Had a wonderful, relaxing lunch. Everyone thought the food was wonderful, the service was very attentive, and the ambiance was quiet and cooling on a hot day. Wish we had been able to go back for dinner but saving that for another trip.
After waiting an hour at the restaurant where i had reservations i called this place and asked what the situation was like. they were busy and would be closing very soon, however, after explaining my situation, they were to delighted to go out of their way to prepare a table. by the time i got there it was ready. the food was excellent (always note the specials) and the service was great the entire evening. the food choice is a little limited if you are not familiar with french cuisine, but everything i have had here is wonderful. the desserts are excellent too.
