Though they're the same shape as pancakes, crêpes are folded rather than stacked, and coated with powdered sugar rather than the tears of pancake chefs who wished they could be crêpe chefs. Dine on a not-pancake with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $20 worth of organic crêpes and sandwiches at O’Crepes in Brooklyn.
O’Crepes' griddle artists delight taste buds with an assortment of organic crêpes and homemade sandwiches. The charmingly simple menu marries low-calorie flour, buckwheat, and gluten-free batter cakes to a slew of fillings and toppings. Diners shimmy through the Hula Hoop crêpe’s medley of strawberry, banana, nutella, and whipped cream ($9), which twirls with the dulcet beauty of a chocolate-covered carousel. The Architectural Digest crêpe ($9.50) is constructed from an ambitious blueprint that calls for chicken, fresh veggies, and swiss cheese. Artistic appetites can also forge into the realm of crêpe design by selecting a sweet or savory canvas ($6 for original or buckwheat; $7 for gluten-free). Á la carte toppings such as honey and walnuts ($0.50 each) or goat cheese and ham ($1 each) equip patrons to craft culinary masterpieces as impressive as a mashed-potato sculpture of Whistler's Mother. A constellation of sandwiches fills the menu with mouthwatering beacons such as the Vietnamese bánh mì ($5.75), which piles a selection of meats or tofu on a french baguette.
