Le Gamin

A month after their “super soft opening“, Le Gamin is in full function mode with giant printed menus, sun-lit dining area, beautifully blooming flowers, a chalkboard with drinks and a most friendly staff. I briefly met with Robert, owner of Le Gamin in all its past and present existences. The handful of times I’ve dined at this casual breezy french creperie I was consistently greeted with an awesome friendly staff and some savory deliciousness. If you try only one crepe in your life I highly recommend ordering the merguez and goat cheese crepe. The chewy, slightly spicy saltiness of the sausage combined with the creamy, tarty smoothness of the cheese wrapped in slightly crisped crepe is phenomenal. And considering I’ve be life-long obsessed with nutella, the sweet crepe with strawberries and bananas topped with whip cream is straight up off the hook.

I blame Le Gamin for my fascination with merguez, a spicy lamb sausage, and pictured above is the sandwich with dijon mustard and ratatouille with a side of salad. I’ll admit it was a bit too mustardy, especially as the salad too, was lathered in a mustard dressing. But the baguette was fresh and the meat oh so fulfilling.

I happily look forward to going back there over and over again, seeing how they’ll decorate their empty lemony walls and check out their full dinner menu.

Le Gamin Opens Its Doors To Greenpoint

 
Quaint French creperie, Le Gamin has officially opened their doors at their new Greenpoint location at 108 Franklin Street. Although they had a self-described “super soft opening” this past Saturday, the kitchen was not quite ready so they have been relying on their food truck, parked out front. Don’t worry, their kitchen should be fully functional by Wednesday, churning out crepes, sandwiches, and more goodies.

Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year. Sunday is so much more relaxed than Saturday — no one is pregaming for anything, rushing to get to the theatre, or frantically texting friends to finalize their plans for “the best night of our lives.”

If you’re like most of the Greenpoint population, you’re so over the #WeekendWarrior. So why not apply that laidback Sunday philosophy to this year’s Valentine’s Day or Galentine’s Day, and keep it in the neighborhood?

Here are some of the spots offering Valentine’s specials in Greenpoint and Williamsburg this year. Some specials run all weekend and some prix fixes are only on V-day. Continue reading
