From Horse Trailer to Third Shop, Crêperie St. Germain Rides On

  • Crêperie Saint Germain

Three years since launching from a converted horse trailer in a SOMA parking lot, Crêperie Saint Germain is getting ready to open its third brick and mortar location in San Francisco at the Bank of America building.

Former SF Weekly restaurant critic Meredith Brody called it "the French truck that you won't read about in the Wall Street Journal" in 2009. But just three years later, Crêperie Saint Germain has become a true San Francisco street food success story.

The menu has savory and sweet options as well as seasonal options. The former includes choices such as braised beef, but if you get a sweet crepe you can get some Humphry Slocombe Ice Cream to go with it. Upcoming specials include Peking duck or kiwi/almond/caramel. Is it Peking duck season already?

The new location debuts on June 18 and will be open from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. A fourth location is due in July in the Metreon, and -- attention stoners -- that's going to be open until midnight.

Crêperie Saint Germain, 555 California (at Kearny), 948-7348

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
