Crepe Day at Chelsea Market

See where I’m going with that?

Last weekend I went to Chelsea Market to scope out the scene and visit the only gluten free crepe place I have ever heard of.  And therefore, by default my favorite and the best crepe place ever.

Bar Suzette – if I were a poet I would write an ode to you.

There were so many different kinds of crepes I wanted to try, but I narrowed it down to the sweet crepes and ordered a nutella and banana. I also was really impressed that they changed their gloves before they made my crepe, and seemed to have really good cross-contamination practices.

Hello beautiful

When I finally got the crepe into my hands, there was no stopping me.

 

Nutella makes smiles happen

Bar Suzette’s crepes are so amazing.  They’re chewy and warm and made with quality ingredients. After my savage destruction of the crepe, I needed some milk.  Luckily Ronnybrook Farms Milk Stand is right around the corner

Got milk?

Even though the market was really packed that day, after eating my way into a sugar-high/carb coma, it was alllll good.

Plus, when you live in NYC there’s always some place to go walk it off.

  1. Sounds great. What are the crepes made from?

    • The guy told me that they were made from rice, lentils, salt, and water – so they should taste similar to sourdough. I actually went to a crepe place in Michigan where they told be that gf crepes “were impossible”. Goes to show what a little innovation can do!

  2. Oh my Lord. If I am ever in NYC, I am trying this place out! Those looks delicious! Especially with a little Nutella.

    I’m Katie by the way! I am a gluten-free eater too =).

    • Thanks for the comment – love the simple recipes and beautiful photos on your blog!

      And you must come to NYC – it’s the gf mecca! And gf crepes are definitely a delicacy, I haven’t heard of them being anywhere else, and they’ve got to be nearly impossible to make yourself.

  3. I was just there to have lunch at my favorite gluten-free lunch/brunch spot, Friedman’s, and went exploring into Bar Suzette. I had no idea they served GF crepes! I will definitely be making a trek to pick one up.

    Also, Bar Breton on 28th and 5th has galettes, GF crepes make from buckwheat flour.

  4. The recipe sounds like Dosa, which should be easy enough to make at home: just soak some dry rice and lentils with some water and salt overnight, then grind the next day and make yourself a yummy crepe or pancake!

    • That sounds easier said than done 🙂 I’ve never had success making crepes though, gluten free or gluten filled, so maybe I just need to give it another shot. For now I’m going to leave it to the experts!
