You’ve had a crepe before, but have you had one inspired by the Sistine Chapel? Or the Colosseum? Or Big Ben? That’s the pitch of Euro Crepes, a bright, industrial-chic spot in Platt Park. Here, both savory and sweet crepes are all named after a European landmark or country. The France crepe, for instance, combines turkey, spinach, brie, walnuts and homemade pear glaze, while the Matterhorn (named after the iconic Swiss mountain), blends blueberries, cream cheese, and cinnamon. Save room for...well, more crepes for dessert.
