THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yo In Yo Out Restaurant Review

: The funky name and location of this Spanish Harlem bistro belies its French menu. Chef Yoanne Magris, together with her sister, Jade, has taken their successful catering business and created a restaurant that is best known for its crêpes, which can be rolled up and sliced like “cigars” for sharing. Try the St. Barth, with truffle essence, portobello mushrooms and herbed goat cheese; the traditional Le Parisien with ham and cheese; or Le Chipotle with marinated chicken, queso blanco, avocado and spicy tomato coulis. A cold melon soup spiked with Champagne is refreshing. Skip the pastas, which could use a higher level of seasoning, and try the heartier dishes like chicken and steak. The sisters’ pastry expertise shines in the tiny tiramisus, éclairs and panna cottas. Note that the restaurant is BYOB due to its location across from a church. The room has hand-stenciled fleurs de lis and other French designs on the walls.
