Pascal and Marcel opened their new crêperie around the corner and although there are only 14 places in art deco theme, and despite the no grand opening announcement, people from the neighbourhood came in for their test evening. The place has been over a year in preparation as the couple redid their living quarters upstairs then built the restaurant looking for unique furnishings like the copper stamped table where I sat.
Complimentary champagne always is a winner.
Of course for any French eating place to succeed the food has to be good. My meal was a crêpe with white chicken meat, gorgonzola and pureed leeks with a salad on the side arranged with artistry on frosted glass square plates. Wonderful. Breton cider went well with it.
The desert was another crêpe with locally-made mint chocolate ice cream and house-made black chocolate source. I didn't lick the plate to get every drop of the sauce, a no-no in Franco table manners (darn it)
The ambience was more like a party as neighbours chatted. Pascal practised his waiting skills and Marcel was in and out of the kitchen to double check the tastes were to the customers satisfactions.
One wall is a blackboard with the choices listed in calligraphy-quality writing. I plan to work my way through the menu. Neither Pascal nor Marcel did anything to discourage the idea.
