Foodie Friday – Rue 52

The whole city is my oyster, but if I had my way I’d never leave my West Philly bubble.  I come from the land of co-ops and farmer’s markets and big front porches and Dock Street Pizza and Ethiopian food and TREES!  And when new little cafes pop up in my hood, I get pretty excited.  Rue 52 isn’t brand spankin’ new anymore, but for some reason it took me a few months to remember to check it out.  I just don’t usually think of 52nd Street as having any viable sit ‘n’ snack options!  Once I got it through my thick skull, I finally walked over to Rue 52 for a crepe date with Katie and became utterly infatuated.  The interior is modern and comfortable – a spacious seating area in the back is supplemented by a couple of cute tables near the front window.  So bring your laptop and stay a while; the people watching is great!  And the crepes are, well, OMG.  Get a “Rittenhouse” and sub the ranch dressing with pesto and you have a chicken, pesto, mozz, and bacon -gasm in your mouth.  And best yet, you will definitely be stuffed and forced to take some home with you (earning the Stephen stamp of approval)!  On another crepe date, I tried a simple sweet crepe with butter, sugar, and lemon.  It was the perfect sweet and light compliment to a cup of coffee in the morning.  The coffee is very tasty in its own right, and one time my mom twisted my arm to get a chocolate raspberry latte (earning the Carina sweet tooth stamp of approval as well).  So fair warning – if you want to meet with me anytime in the next few months, chances are I’ll try to drag you on a crepe date to Rue 52.
