Travel Eats (New York, NY): Lady M Mille Crêpes

If you’re in New York City, Lady M is a bakery that’s worth stopping by.  Its signature Mille Crepe are dozens of sheets of crepes stack up to make a 4-inch tall cake.  The cakes are airy and delicate, with layers of crepes separated by deliciously light cream. While the menu boasts a variety of sweet goods, the Vanilla (original) mille crepe cake and Green Tea mille crepe cake are the most popular and favored by customers.  At first bite, the cakes are rich and creamy, but are not overly sweet or heavy.  The green tea one has a thick dusting of matcha powder on the top which holds a very strong and distinct flavor that lingers in your mouth after each bite.

The cakes are priced at $8/slice and can be eaten at the bakery or ordered to-go to eat in Bryant Park (located right next to its Bryant Park Boutique 36 West 40th Street location).  The ambience of Lady M is minimalistic and casual, which makes it an ideal location to meet up with friends or relax after a stroll in the park.

For a summer treat, try pairing the cake with slices of fresh fruit and a glass of Campari.  Campari is an alcoholic liqueur that comes from an infusion of herbs and fruit in alcohol and water.  Fill a glass with ice, mix the Campari liqueur with club soda, and add in a wedge of lime.  The bitterness of the Campari nicely balances the subtle sweetness of these Lady M crepe cakes-and the crimson red hue is just refreshing to look at!
