Cafe Triskell, Astoria, Queens

There's a little French cafe in Queens called Cafe Triskell, with a chef named Philippe Fallait from Brittany who makes the most amazing crepes, one by one. This morning I had a savory buckwheat crepe filled with Swiss cheese and covered with sauteed button mushrooms. The experience transported my tastebuds to Bretagne and they will now be loathe to ever again eat the doughy concoctions masquerading as crepes in most of the rest of the world.

Cafe Triskell is on 36th Avenue, between 31st and 32nd street, half a block away from the 36th Avenue stop on the N and W trains. If you aren't in the neighborhood it is well worth the trip out.
