The Charlotte pancake cellar will close, take menu favorites with it

Crepe Cellar Pesto Brie Fries: Hand-cut fries are fried twice for extra crunch and are topped with a traditional basil and pine nut pesto, brie and tomato.

When news broke that Crepe Cellar would close and then reopen as an Italian restaurant in NoDa, the reaction from the people of Charlotte was collectively bittersweet.

“WHAT ABOUT PESTO BRIE FRIES,” replied Whitney Rose on CharlotteFive’s Instagram post. We can also smell the capital letters, Whitney.

“Please save the French onion soup,” wrote Kathryn Terry.

It got us thinking of the best items on the Crepe Cellar menu, the ones we will miss the most.

Don’t worry, you have a few months until the new restaurant, Ever Andalo opens. Customers have requested that some of Crepe Cellar’s meals stay – and owners Jamie Brown Jeff Tonidandel has said they will consider requests. So stay tuned as Tonidandel finalizes the menu for Ever Andalo – we’ll keep you updated on the status of your favorite dishes.

In addition, from Tuesday October 26, Crepe Cellar will be closed on Tuesday and Sunday evenings (Sunday brunch is still in progress) due to a lack of staff.

In the meantime, here are the top six things you need to eat at Crepe Cellar before it closes (and one menu item that will remain, but will have a different setup):

French onion soup

When looking for a soup, don’t miss this one. The classic bowl of comfort food is topped with melted Gruyere and includes crostini ($ 9).

Brie fries with pesto

You can find fries almost anywhere, but you won’t find anything like Crepe Cellar’s brie pesto fries. These hand-cut fries are double-fried for extra crunch and are topped with a traditional basil and pine nut pesto, brie and tomato ($ 8 small, $ 14 large).

PEI Mussels

Start your meal in style. Prince Edward Island mussels are presented differently each day and are a fan favorite at the restaurant ($ 16).

Among the Charlotteans jumping to mourn the loss via the Crepe Cellar Instagram were Amy Kate Curran, mamacitamontes and mulletmixer.

Crepe suzette

For something sweeter, try Crêpe Suzette, which pairs Grand Marnier butter sauce with vanilla ice cream ($ 12).

A slice of good news

And, as a bonus, here’s a menu item that we already know will be left:

Burrata

The burrata will have a different setup at Ever Andalo, Brown told CharlotteFive. But for now, here’s how you can get it at Crepe Cellar: peach coulis, Greek olive oil, toast, salt flakes ($ 16, add prosciutto for $ 5).
