I feel like I’m just re-discovering Chelsea Market because I found myself in the area more often than I ever had been during Fashion Week. On one of the first days when I was attending a conference next door, I was famished by 1pm. The number of food options you have at CM is almost dizzying. When I walked in, the first thing that caught my eye was Bar Suzette. In the interest of surviving, I went straight to their counter. They had this hummus/veggie/truffle oil crepe that sounded promising…well, actually I never really had a hummus crepe so I figured it could go either way, but since it was my first real meal of the day, I forcefully numbed my normal Nutella craving and ordered it.
And Wow. I don’t know if I had low expectations, but I felt like I was eating a gourmet crepe. The crepe itself was not as thin and flimsy as I’m normally used to and the veggies were fresh and crunchy. I’m also pretty sure you can put truffle oil on anything and it makes it that much better — I devoured it. Bar Suzette doesn’t have a website but I read on their FB page that their menu is seasonal and constantly switching things up. And the prices aren’t bad either…the crepe was $9 and filling. I have yet to try their dessert crepes but at least in its savory category, I think it can give Creperie a run for its money.
