France has a long history of giving America gifts, from the Statue of Liberty to the Tricolore flag our presidents have traditionally used to hide under during scary movies. Accept their latest gift: this Groupon.
- $249 for a two-hour crepe-cart rental for up to 20 people (a $550 value)
During two-hour crepe-cart rentals, staffers—who speak French upon request—concoct sweet creations on a cast-iron griddle, such as lemon-sugar crepes or crepes with banana and Nutella.
La Petite France
Alexandra and Romeo fell in love in France over cups of flour and sugar as Romeo completed his professional boulanger and patissier training. Today, the couple recreates quintessential French flavors in their West Hartford bakery-café, where the menu kicks off with breakfasts of pain au chocolat and almond croissants. For lunch, chefs build sandwiches such as Le Brie with cheese and butter, and the Eiffel, whose roasted chicken breast, carrots, and cucumber stands 324 meters tall. Desserts such as macarons and chocolate-hazelnut mousse cake pair with a cappuccino or café au lait to round out each meal.
La Petite France also rolls out its portable crepe cart to special events throughout the area, where French-speaking chefs (upon request) whip up sweet or savory crepes for parties of 20 or more.
