Café Triskell

We were back to Long Island City, looking for a place to have lunch and found Café Triskell, a French crêperie coming straight from Brittany from where the owner, Philippe Fallait is from. And I have to say that it felt like a little corner of France, miles away.

We were there for crêpes and did not even consider any other dishes, although I regretted not ordering the escargots that the table next to us were eating with much pleasure. No, we went for their buckwheat crêpes. Jodi chose the pear, aged goat cheese, honey (without almonds) one, that was served with a small salad.

I went for the ham, egg and cheese.

Both crêpes were delicious, very slightly crispy. In Jodi's crepe, I loved the combination of the sweet and savory. With mine, it was quite a classic crepe, very good, with a perfectly made sunny side egg, but I wish there was a bit more ham. Despite this, I would recommend it.

Chef Phillipe Fallait is a man with a simple mission. To bring to New Yorkers a taste of the comfort foods of Brittany (his hometown), where buckwheat crepes were born.

Formerly a pastry chef with Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Fallait opened up Café Triskell in Astoria in 2007. Offering really tasty French bistro fare, the French Onion Soup at Triskell has been voted the best in New York City and is definitely worth a try.

Traditional crepes from Brittany served here are really authentic and come with several choices of sweet and savory fillings. There’s more on the menu too – I tried a really knockout Croque Madame.

The place is tiny, housing just a handful of tables. There is some outdoor seating too but its best to come early the place fills up really quickly.

Lovely food here. I was in town on business and happened to come across this place. The chefs were amazing at what they do and the waiters were on tract.
