Dine Out On The Mile

Creating New Orleans Charm and Tradition at Midtown Creperie & Cafe Mathew Grizzle, owner of Midtown Creperie & Cafe wanted to go a different route when he opened his creperie on the Mile with his wife, Melissa. “Most Creperies go French authentic. I’m not French,” Mathew Grizzle says. He wanted to be more authentic to himself than give in to the regular French theme. “I had issues with being something we’re not,” he says. Grizzle…

TRIP TO NEW ORLEANS BEIGNETS IN FRENCH QUARTER ALLEY, MIDTOWN CREPERIE & CAFE   New Orleans’s lively French Quarter is the inspiration for Midtown Crêperie, where Matthew & Melissa Grizzle were looking to bring the same sparkle to the Miracle Mile.  Midtown could just as easily be Café Du Monde (of famous New Orleans notoriety), and they have the sugar dusted, puffed doughnut beignets to prove it.  Take your beignets with Gharardelli caramel or chocolate…

Dixieland Crêpe Named One Of The Best Desserts In SJ County

There’s something special about watching the chefs at Midtown Creperie ladle their batter onto a perfectly circular griddle, spreading it out with expert precision. The batter bubbles and steams until it’s flipped over, creating a homemade crepe, a paper-thin pancake, which can then be stuffed with anything and folded into a warm treat that’s satisfying for any meal of the day. When it comes to dessert, the Dixieland Crepe has a reputation. Stuffed with a…

Do You Like Them…

Dr. Seuss’ “Green Eggs and Ham” was published in 1960, and ever since, young children have been alternately disgusted and fascinated by the idea of eating something that looks so …unnatural. We mark the book’s 50th birthday by sharing interpretations of the classic dish from three local chefs and restaurant owners: Mark Berkner of Taste in Plymouth; Matthew Grizzle of Midtown Creperie and Cafe in Stockton; and Rodney Balbin of Garlic Brothers Restaurant in Stockton….

A Taste Of New Orleans

When long-time business owners Matthew and Melissa Grizzle decided they wanted to do something fun with their business savvy, they didn’t waste any time. The couple had always talked about opening up a little café, and decided that there was no time like the present. They wanted to put their stamp on something unique that they could throw their hearts into, a spot that would also be fun for the whole community. This is how…

A French Quarter Experience

{gallery}lodinews{/gallery} I’ve never been to the French Quarter, New Orleans or the South, for that matter. When I think about what it would be like, Dixieland music plays in my head, over pictures of local girls doing the chicken dance in the street and little kids eating a “po’ boy” for the first time. Of course, I don’t really even know what a “po’ boy” is, just that a friend didn’t make it back to…

New Day, New Eatery

Stockton eateries are opening their doors and offering deals with Stockton Restaurant Week, which kicks off today. “Restaurants are such a key part of bringing visitors in,” said Wes Rhea, director of the Stockton Conference and Visitors Bureau. The purpose of…

A Crepe Escape

  When Daniel Peron closed his eatery on the Miracle Mile earlier this year, his loyal followers were at a loss. Taste of Brittany really was a taste of classic French cooking that went beyond crepes. Thankfully, though, diners can still get a good crepe in Stockton, and if it tastes a bit familiar, it’s because the new Midtown Creperie & Cafe – also on the Miracle Mile – has hired Michael Adams from Taste…
