Nestled amongst the eclectic grab-bag of Chinese restaurants, supply shops, and five-and-dimes, the upscale dessert spot didn’t quite fit the landscape from the outset. Nevertheless, La Crepe C’est Si Bon still put in two years service at 115 Eldridge Street. Now the cafe is pivoting to a new concept with the recent transition to La Señorita.

Ownership imported Chef King Solomon, formerly of Soho’s Red Strype, to spice up the atmosphere. The rebranded cafe is currently open to friends and family.

The following announcement was published on the Crepe Facebook page:

Hi to all crepe lovers,

We are changing our vibes slightly to drive more business to our shop and here is how we are going to do it:

La Señorita is a new bodega on the LES commemorating the thirtieth year (1983-2013) on the New York night scene for Chef King Solomon, owner of the legendary Red Strype Bar in SoHo and the original A Cafe on the Upper West Side. Well he’s back to the neighbourhood where it all started, cooking up fresh flavours of Puerto Rican Panqueques, while Señora Claudia from the Lower East Side serves up café Cubanos to the sights and sounds of yesterday. There will be a soft opening to f…riends and locals starting on 29th March, 2013 Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 6pm to 2am. They will be closed on Mondays & Tuesdays. Complimentary bebidas will be offered, but please byob if you’d like as they are awaiting their licence approval.
