La Crepe Nanou Restaurant Review

: La Crêpe Nanou’s interior recalls nineteenth-century Europe --- a hodgepodge of greenery, whimsical paintings and quirky artifacts --- while the service and food adhere to contemporary standards. You'll find properly rustic pâté maison, the more-than-acceptable mussels marinière (as availability permits), steak frites with the right bite and flavor, and grilled salmon with a straightforward béarnaise sauce. Diners may need to wait at the small, tight bar or outside on the sidewalk with a glass of wine before a table opens up. The wine list is brief, to say the least, 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 so appropriately as a rich Montagne 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.
