Beau Monde Restaurant Review

: There is no place more pleasant to enjoy crêpes than in this restored house in Queen Village. Crêpes are a Breton tradition, and these are “le vrai” articles, made with buckwheat or plain flour. From the windows overlooking Bainbridge Street, onlookers can watch the dishes being prepared on imported cast iron griddles. Starters include a selection of three pâtés served properly with cornichons, or a salad with seared tuna, shrimp and scallops. Entrée crêpes are golden envelopes that may contain smoked salmon, coq au vin or roasted leeks, among other fillings. Dessert crêpes might hold apples, goat cheese and crème fraîche or berries, lemon curd and lemon sorbet. Upstairs, you’ll find live music, drag shows and more at L’Etage cabaret.
