We here at Planned Property Management love bringing you new exciting restaurants and bars in Lakeview, Lincoln Park and the Gold Coast – BUT sometimes you need to revisit the classics! No Lakeview restaurant screams CLASSIC like Le Creperie, founded in 1972 on Clark just north of Diversey – a hidden gem in the city. We were instantly transported to France when we entered the restaurant, especially the further back you go into the restaurant! We arrived ultimately in the outdoor patio – a true peaceful oasis in the middle of one of the most bustling neighborhoods in the city!
It’s true you can find a great sweet crepe in many Chicago restaurants, but we feel Le Creperie has the best savory crepes in the city! Crepes are the perfect portion for lunch – some may view this as a negative but we think each savory crepe is small enough so that it can be followed up by a sweet crepe for dessert. This is what we had:
• Chicken in an Herb Cream Sauce w/ Sautéed Mushrooms
• Chicken Breast w/ Roasted Tomatoes and Goat Cheese
• Curry Chicken
• Caramel and Salted Butter
• Chocolate and Toasted Coconut
• Nutella w/ Sautéed Bananas
The final overall consensus is great food with an authentic French atmosphere.
