In my previous post, I forgot to mention a couple of restaurants that I tried recently.
First up, Crêpes in the City (Yelp link because it looks like they haven’t renewed their domain name!). This place has been open for around a year, I think, but I never had a chance to go until I was serving on a jury last week (forgot to mention that, too. Also, Porkchop served on a jury recently as well.). Anyway, this meant I was conveniently within walking distance of the crepes.
And the crepes are so delicious! I would walk several miles for them! I had the Mediterranean (tomatoes, olives, artichokes, mushrooms, etc.) on a whole wheat crepe. The crepe was huge and packed with filling, and utterly lovely. I chose the whole wheat batter from the list of five possibilities (regular, herb, whole wheat, espresso, and chocolate, if I recall correctly). Batter choices! Nice!
Before, Rooster was my favorite crepe place. Now…I think it might be Crêpes in the City. Of course, I’ll have to go back a couple of times to sample more…especially the dessert crepes.
Second, we had Sunday brunch at Benton Park Cafe. This cafe is super close to our house, but we just hadn’t made it over there until now. They were packed, but since we sat outside, we didn’t have to wait for a table. I had the California omelet, and Porkchop had the South of the Border burrito. We both had the loaded potatoes on the side. Thumbs up on everything! Tasty and good-sized portions! Oh, and they serve a slice of cumcumber in their water, which is all sorts of refreshing.
