Fast-Casual Crepe Shop Slated for Oak Cliff's Sylvan Thirty

Whisk Crêpes Café will be brought to you by a real live Frenchman.

Better start mastering the keyboard shortcuts for those accent marks, because Whisk Crêpes Café will open at Oak Cliff's soon-to-be-budding Sylvan Thirty development come early 2015. Owner Julien Eelsen possesses at least one very important attribute for a crepe shop owner: He is indeed French, having moved to the States from Paris just six years ago. (Per a press release, Eelsen "has a family history of hotels and restaurants in the Normandy region," which is also probably helpful.)

The 645 square-foot "upscale fast-casual" creperie will hold just 20 seats and will be located next door to the equally diminutive Ten, the long-awaited ramen shop from Teiichi Sakurai. Expect crepes of both sweet and savory varieties, as well as wine, beer, and cider. Interestingly, the restaurant's interior will be designed by Arlene Pemrose, who designed legendary musician Johnny Cash's residence in Nashville.

Besides crepes and ramen, Sylvan Thirty also has a coffee shop (which may or may not be The Pearl Cup) and a taqueria on the way.
