If you take a left at the cashier at The Market @ 610, you’ll see a man standing behind a waist-high counter looking a bit like a casino blackjack dealer. That’s Christopher Raven, the chef and owner of Crêpe Central. Before him are two crepe griddles. Crepes, for their simplicity, offer nearly limitless possibilities. Raven has two batters, and dozens of sweet and savory sauces and fillings. There are several recommended formulations on the menu, or go freestyle—a wheat batter crepe with spinach, bacon, olives, red peppers and harissa, say. When the batter is set and golden, he folds the crepe’s four sides into a square, cuts it in half, and voilà: an elegant but unfussy presentation. (Alibi Staff, June 21, 2012)
