The Crooked Tree, a creperie on Saint Marks Place, is one of those places you just know is good simply by passing by it. A lopsided tree out front, inspiring the name of the restaurant, carves out a perfect outdoor seating area for customers on nice days. The scent of browned butter and caramelized dough wafts out onto the city street, inciting customers inside.

Just inside the restaurant, an equally as appealing dining area is decorated with unique art, wine bottles, and colorful flowers. It is small enough to create an intimate environment, but not too small that you are cramped next to other costumers.
While best known for their crepes (which come in both sweet and savory options) The Crooked Tree has a far more extensive menu- offering an array of salads and sandwiches, as well as beer, sangria, and select cocktails.
The Crooked Tree has that perfect fusion of a comfortable, friendly environment, and mouth-watering food. Definitely make sure to check it out next time you’re in the area. For more information, visit their website.
