La Crepe Nanou Restaurant Review

: For more than three decades, this compact French bistro and crêperie has been packing them in. La Crêpe Nanou’s interior recalls 19th-century Europe --- a hodgepodge of greenery, whimsical paintings and quirky artifacts --- while the service and food adhere to contemporary standards. You'll find the traditional escargots in rich garlic butter, mussels marinière (as availability permits) served with steak frites with the right bite and flavor, and grilled salmon with a lemon and caper beurre blanc. Since reservations are not accepted, diners may need to wait at the small, tight bar or outside on the sidewalk with a glass of wine. The wine list is brief, but almost every offering is available by the glass. Unlike other French bistros, this one presents more than just French wines on its list, with some California and German selections. Nothing boosts a flavorful beef bourguignon-filled crêpe quite as appropriately as a rich Saint-Emilion, which carries over nicely to dessert if you go for the sweet, berry-laden dessert crêpes. If berries don’t tempt your taste buds, go all the way with the coffee ice cream crêpes topped with chestnut cream and rum flambé.
