Crêperie Bouchon has plenty of scratch-made soups available for your cold-weather needs. The eatery offers a French onion soup daily, as well as a vegetarian chili. At least two other soups should be on tap on a regular basis, says managing partner Craig Peters. For lunch on the fly, consider the 12-ounce soups the crêperie offers, served with slices of fresh-baked City Bakery baguette for $6 (including tax). "It's the perfect meal-size portion that you can grab quickly and get back to work," Peters says.
The crêperie has gone into winter mode, says Peters, which means the restaurant will only be open during the day until springtime, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., seven days a week. The crêperie will be closed during the evening all winter for various private parties and for some small improvements the owners want to make to the space (restaurant improvement and special event dining will not happen concurrently, we presume).
Crêperie Bouchon is located at 62 Lexington Ave. in the courtyard behind Bouchon. For more information, visit http://creperiebouchon.com.
