La Crepe and the Magic Pan

Used to love these two creperies in NY. Are they still around?

Don't I wish! I loved those places!

To my recollection, they were all closed in the late 70's/early 80's.

Yummmm.... How I miss the chicken divan crepes! And try as I might, I could never really reproduce that salad with the poppy seed dressing and mandarin oranges.
This just might start a thread akin to the "Defunct Parks!"

Wow, what memories. We called it "The tragic Pan" after eating crepes in France.

What I miss is the cheddar cheese salad dressing, "roasted" Ratatouille, and those hot chocolate drinks - also the spinach souffle crepes.

I've had crepes in France, too, but thought the Magic Pan did a superior job with varieties for one thing.

The one in St. Louis was dark and dingy back in the 70's but i loved the seafood crepes.
i wonder if I would today!! I was a teen when I used to beg my mom to take me there...

These places are long gone, but your question prompted me to do a google search for other crepe places. I found Rue des Crepes on 8th ave. and 15th st (they have crepes with nutella and banana filling)

and a delightful sounding place called Paradou on Little West 12 st and 9th ave.

and Palacinka in Soho on Grand St, a Czech creperie.

A few years ago there was a guy on 46th Street in NYC off of 6th who had a crepe stand and made wonderful crepes. Sadly, he only lasted one summer.
