Batter Up on Liberty
You taste exactly how sweet the batter is if you order an appetizer of "crepe crispies," which look like pita chips but have vanilla wafer/animal cracker undertones. You can order them with sweet dips or in a savory fashion, drizzled with truffle oil and sprinkled with both shaved Parmesan and shredded cheddar--"overkill," a dining companion proclaimed. The flight of savory dips that accompanied the crispies, however, were popular: spicy chorizo sausage queso, mild smoked salmon pate, and a light take on spinach artichoke.
Also notably pleasing were smooth chicken white bean soup (garnished with bacon and cheese) and fresh mixed baby greens salads. Note that three of the four salads (all but the tuna Nicoise) come with either fruit or candied nuts sweetening the mix. Our attempts to request omissions--once in salad, once in crepes--were not successful. A better tack might be to build your own; they'll add any of their many fillings, sauces, and toppings a la carte to a $6 crepe ($7 for gluten-free or vegan).
Dessert crepes are a big deal here. Unlike the dinner burritos, the massive Patriot--topped with bananas, blueberries, strawberries, Nutella, and both ice cream and whipped cream--is served flat, pizza style. Consider sharing it--or a Honey Bear, S'More, or Banana Exotique--if you have that sort of familiarity with your companion. Maybe one of you will want to order a drinkable dessert from the very sweet-sounding array of special cocktails. Cinnamon Old Fashion or Gummy-Bear Martini, anyone?
