For the last eight years or so; each year while we are in Albuquerque for the AIBF we plan to have dinner at La Crepe Michel. If possible we make it our last dinner in town. It is a highlight for us. The restaurant is in a hard to find cul-de-sac of old town Albuquerque. It is small and is quaint in appearance. Typically the restaurant is crowded so reservations are very helpful.
The staff is polite, welcoming, and very attentive. Our server and other staff members were at our table frequently to replenish bread and refill water glasses. Throughout our dinner they returned to check up on how our evening was progressing. They allowed us to have a leisurely and relaxed dining experience; no rush.
The food was excellent both in taste and presentation. My spouse and I both started with one of our favorite appetizers; escargot. It was delicious. My spouse had the trout feature and I had roast duck breast. They were prepared superbly and tasted wonderful. Unlike many French restaurants our entree portions were quite sufficient. Typically we do not have desert but we had to have one on the offered dessert crepes. We chose the Crêpe a la Banane et Miel, a crepe made with honey and banana, to share along with coffee and a cappuccino.
It was another great meal for us and we will be back next year.
