Could not begin to describe how yummy this meal was. Yes, I am a guy and I said the “yummy” word as it was that good. It’s one of those meals that makes you feel as if you are eating dessert no matter what you order. Yet, that’s a good thing!
Yorkville Creperie is one of those spots in our hood on the Upper East Side NYC that we knew about but never really ventured over to. Finally decided to make a go of it. We arrived here on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It was after brunch hours and since it was a summer season weekend we had the place to ourselves at around 5PM. Grabbed a seat by the opened front windows and there was a nice breeze blowing in. Looked over the extensive menu of crepes and panini’s and decided to go with the Roma crepe – Chicken, Mozzarella and Tomato Bruschetta, in an Herb Crepe.
Hot damn! Was this good! Just the right amount to fit my appetite this afternoon. (Personally, I could have eaten two of them. Shhhhh…….)
We also ordered the Greco Crepe – Spinach, Tomato and Feta. For a few dollars more grilled chicken was added to it. Tasty and savory for sure! Feta makes everything better.
But of course being the gluttasaurus animals that we are we had to try a dessert crepe. How could we not? We happily ordered the S’MORE – Dark Chocolate, Graham Cracker Crumb and Fluff.
Yes, freakin’ FLUFF! I used to eat jars of that stuff as a kid. Fluffernutter sandwiches were a part of my normal diet! FLUFF! FLUFF! FLUFF! Yes, I was a fat chunky kid.
(They also do have a Fluff -A- Nutter crepe which includes Peanut Butter, Fluff, Nutella, Banana and Graham Cracker Crumb. OMFG! I must return for this!)
Anyway, the dessert crepe was warm and sweet. Just right for two people to split. The dark chocolate reminded me of Bosco. Maybe it was Bosco. Double Yum!
This place itself has a nice decor. Clean and homey like. Service was attentive. Lots of options on the menu, and you can also build your own crepe from scratch if you want. They have some pretty decent specials each night of the week. I remember seeing a list and one of them was “Wed Date Night” deal for $50 you get a bottle of wine, two crepe entrees, and a dessert crepe – not a bad deal at all! On certain nights they even feature live music. Brunch on weekends. Half price wine. It’s a great local spot for a low key meal for two, a first date, or a fun dinner with friends.
Will definitely be back to try out more crepes here! FLUFF!
