Celebrate Chandeleur with French Morning in NYC

A plate of food and a cup of coffee

You say you LOVE crêpes. Prove it.

Put your crêpes where your mouth is at French Morning’s Chandeleur Crêpe Feast, co-hosted by BZH-NY, les Bretons de New York.

Chandeleur—a.k.a. French Crêpe Day, a.k.a. French Pancake Day, celebrated 40 days after Christmas—is traditionally commemorated with a cornucopia of endless crêpes, piled high with toppings and washed down with artisanal cider. This year is no different. On February 2nd, held at Boucherie, a new West Village restaurant, French Morning’s Chandeleur Party will feature the work of two “crêpsperts”: Dolores Rio of La Maison Bretonne in Westchester, who will prepare savory crêpes sarrazins, and Olivier Balavoine, who will prepare sweet crêpes sucrées.

Boucherie is a brand-new, traditional French restaurant in the heart of the West Village. The head chef, Jérôme Dihui—formerly of Pastis—offers a classic bistro menu that includes beloved dishes like wood-oven grilled steak. Housed in the former Circle Repertory Theater, Boucherie serves delicious cuisine amidst spectacular surroundings. With a capacity of 300+ people, there’s no excuse not to bring your friends along. To ensure your place at the celebration, make reservations in advance on Open Table here (mention “Chandeleur” in the reservation).

Artisanal cider will be provided by Aval.

This event is organized in partnership with La Ruche, a boutique events planner with a finger on the creative center of New York City.
