Profile

With its exposed wood beams, muted red and blue leather banquettes, low-lit wrought-iron sconces, and tiny crystal chandelier, this Teutonically done-up crêperie is the sort of low-key standby that every neighborhood wishes for. The buttery aroma of sizzling crêpe batter and a mix of soul, reggae, hip hop and Latin-infused world music fill the cozy space where, alongside NYU students, coed journal-keepers, and seasoned East Village denizens, you can almost always count on a seat. Simple leafy salads and pressed sandwiches start out the menu but regulars head straight for the crêpes: Galettes, actually, these countrified versions of the delicate pancake are made from a combination of buckwheat and whole wheat flour that results in a pleasingly chewy texture. You can request your own blend of fillings or choose among a dozen pairings like Black Forest ham and Jarlsburg; goat cheese and garlicky sautéed spinach; or soppressata with fresh mozzarella and softened red onion. Sweet crêpes are made from a lighter mix of white and wheat flour, brightened with sugar and vanilla, and folded over the likes of Nutella or dulce de leche. If you snag a spot near the wide front windows—or at one of the tile-topped outdoor tables—you can take in the sidewalk parade of (occasionally crooked) local characters.
