Most people associate crepes – a famous staple of French cuisine – with Paris, but they would be hard-pressed to find options more delicious than those found in NYC creperies. As a cultural melting pot, New York and France have many similarities believe it or not! From our divine French restaurants and cafes to our top-tier crumbly croissants, to even our own Little Paris neighborhood (yes, we know!!), it’s no secret we’re quite a fan of the European influence.
When it comes to crepes, we’ve got a list to get your mouth watering. From sweet to savory, and every adjective in between, stop by one of these spots to scout out the best crepe in NYC.
