In a rare reversal, people who thought they'd never see La Creperie in Chicago again are about to be pleasantly surprised. The longtime Lakeview crepe spot, which shuttered in August, is coming back to the original location, Crain's reports. Ownership originally planned to bring the concept to California but plans changed following the tragic death of their son. Expect the reopening at some point in December.
Ownership of neighboring Duke of Perth are now partners in the relaunch. Crain's reports that most of the details will be the same as the original concept, which stood for 41 years. Head back in a month or so for some crepes.
