Celebrate @FoodNetwork#TheBestThingIEverAte Rugby Crepe at @SimplyCrepes #RaleighNC @LafayetteVil

Disclaimer: Thanks to our friends at Simply Crepes Raleigh for hosting SobeSavvy.com and inviting us to try their Rugby Crepe!

Since moving to Raleigh almost 4 years ago, I have managed to find a few of my favorite restaurants here. One of them is Simply Crepes. Located in the fashionable Lafayette Village, Simply Crepes is a family owned homage to everything crepes. Savory and Sweet rule the day here. I have always told all my friends and family about the place. I am glad to announce they will soon be known to millions more. Simply Crepes will have their own featured segment on the iconic Food Network show called “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” on April 8!

Entering it’s 10th season, this show highlights what and where celebrity chefs and hosts of Food Network Programs like to eat on their off time and on their own dime. Chef Fabio Viviani (whom I had the pleasure to meet/interview in Miami in 2015 and dine at his restaurant Siena Tavern Miami), is the breakout star of the reality show Top Chef who now owns various eateries and restaurants nationwide! He stopped by Simply Crepes in NY while on a business trip in the area and was impressed by the food to say the least. There was one crepe in particular that he fell in love with. It is called The Rugby Crepe.

Simply Crepes calls this their homage to the Big Mac. Shaved Angus Steak , crisp lettuce, cheddar cheese, pickles, sauteed onions on a sesame seed crepe! Chef Fabio Viviani approached the owners to be on the show. They agreed and as they say, the rest is history. I had a chance to try this crepe with the option of adding applewood bacon and agree with Chef. It is amazingly good! The best part was the Russian dressing. I could seriously put that on everything!

Simply Crepes also has some incredible sides to go with this now famous item. Their Brussell Sprouts are something to behold. Crispy, with balsamic and goat cheese crumble.You may also want to try their loaded potatos as tasty side or one of their delicious soups. I recommend the Creamy Potatoe and Bacon Chowder.No matter which starter or side you choose, save room for dessert. The Bananas & Creme Crepe is the perfect sweet ending to your meal.

SobeSavvy Tip: Visit Simply Crepes on Mimosa Monday’s and you get half price mimosa’s and also $20 Mimosa Carafe’s. They offer 4 different flavors for your choosing. It is the perfect way to celebrate with Simply Crêpes!
