Many of the Arthurian legends take place in Brittany and many people still speak Brezonek or Breton. Crêpes even have their own holiday. It is called"la chandeleur” and it is celebrated on February 2nd. The crêpes are made on the round iron griddles, called Biligs .Flipping the crêpe, while holding a coin in the left hand, is said to ensure wealth & happiness for the year.
La Crêperie is the oldest Crêperie in the U.S. Germain and Sara Roignant opened la Crêperie on June 1st,1972. The front dining room was the entire restaurant and the copper arch in front was the original kitchen exhaust .Many of the posters in the restaurant remain from opening day.
