Make way for mussels: Bouchon Crêperie closes for a kitchen upgrade

Crêperie Bouchon is muscling through some renovations again.

A kitchen upgrade will bring all-you-can-eat mussel nights to the crêpe shop, which are already popular at its next-door parent restaurant, Bouchon French Bistro. The Crêperie has closed temporarily while the changes take place.

Manager Jenn McGibbon says it’s hard to predict when the Crêperie will reopen. “Worst-case scenario, we're looking at March, but we would love to reopen before then,” she says. “We are going to be closed for at least a month, a month and a half.” The courtyard diner also closed last winter for a few months, mostly reworking its patio and service counter.

Among other revisions to the restaurant, sandwiches will return to the lunch menu. Also, the inside seating will receive an upgrade. “We're known for the patio and how comfortable the patio is and the sort of environment that has, so we are trying to replicate that for inside as well,” McGibbon says.

Bouchon French Bistro, 62 N. Lexington Ave., at the same address as the Crêperie, will maintain its normal hours and will not be affected by the renovations at the Crêperie. For more information, call 350-1140.
