I called ahead of time and asked if the gluten free crepes are made on a separate surface from regular crepes - he clearly stated without hesitation that no, they are all made on the same griddle.
Crepes are delicious and definitely gluten free, first time in many years I’ve been able to have one. Would definitely return on our next visit to Chicago.
GLUTEN FREE CREPES!
This place is like a dream come true for me. I didn’t ask about their preparation, but clearly they’re doing things right because I didn’t get sick, despite being extremely sensitive. You can substitute gluten free crepe batter for any crepe on the menu.
Although this place only has two or three cook tops for the crêpes, if you tell them you’re celiac, they’ll thoroughly wipe one down before starting yours. The surface isn’t porous, and they know what they’re doing. As someone who’s super sensitive to cross contamination, I’ve eaten here 6+ times and never gotten sick.
While I should have been more careful on the contamination risk, I went ahead and ate and had delicious GF crepes. they knew about ingredients of other things and what would/wouldn't be safe (e.g.no Mornay sauce). I enjoyed my crepes very much.
