Coming Soon: La Crepe C’est Si Bon at 115 Eldridge

Posted on: November 16th, 2010 at 6:37 am by

Eldridge Street between Broome and Grand remains largely a Chinatown enclave.  While there are more mainstream establishments like Vanessa’s Dumpling House or Fontana’s, this stretch of retail real estate is predominantly populated by Chinese-owned businesses.  There is a healthy mix of 99-cent stores, salons, and restaurants. Now there’s a new kid on the block.

Preparations for La Crepe C’est Si Bon at 115 Eldridge have been underway for quite awhile.  Since last May, in fact.  However, only recently have developments here become more fast-paced.  We ambled past yesterday to assess progress.  The new storefront is dressed in a cream-colored paint and boasts floor-to-ceiling windows, while yellow neon signage flickers above.  Inside, the decor has a rather homey feel with four small coffee tables and a simple kitchen that quite resembles those found in domestic households.

According to one of the co-owners working behind the counter, La Crepe C’est Si Bon will feature French crepes (natch), scones, and coffee sourced from the eastern end of Long Island. A soft opening is slated for next Wednesday, but the menu is still in the works.
