Culver Crepes: L'Epicerie

L'Epicerie is the little market/restaurant from the former owner of Fraiche. I recently stopped by for lunch. There is a nice menu of pretty basic sandwiches, all of which were good if not very exciting, but I particularly liked the desserts. Ice cream sandwiches were sandwiched with large, macaron cookies. The grasshopper with mint chocolate chip cookies was fabulous. The highlight, though, was the brown sugar crepe, a simply enough made crepe with melted butter and brown sugar, but it was spot on, chewy and a bit eggy, with sweet melted butter popping out as you bit into it.

The dinner plates look intriguing as well, especially the house made charcuterie and duck and pork belly confit, some of which are also available in the small market section of the restaurant.
