Best Crepes - 2003
Ti Couz - CLOSED
Ti Couz (meaning "old house") serves up the tastiest crepes in the city, hands down. As its name suggests, the restaurant has a distinctly down-home atmosphere, and the crepes are prepared Breton-style (a culinary tradition of northern France). The price range is a reasonable $2-10. Ti Couz offers more than 100 combinations, but one of our favorites is the smoked salmon crepe (made with buckwheat flour, topped with crème fraîche). For sweet tooths, the ever-popular Nutella, banana, and vanilla combination (made with wheat flour) will send you on an endorphin high. Sunday brunch on a sunny day is fantastic at Ti Couz, with plenty of outside seating (though you'll still have to wait for a table). But, trust us, it's worth it. Relax and order a Ti Couz Mimosa (champagne and peach schnapps) and scope out the interesting crowd. Try not to torture yourself by eyeballing the passing plates as the waiters deliver them to other tables. Try; you won't succeed.
