Reviews of ChouChou

For a couple of years, my mother and I kept driving by this bistro, and she said, "one day, we should have a meal here." Three weeks ago. It all started when we decided to eat out for lunch after running some errands, and she brought up ChouChou as I was driving. So, I pulled over to the side of the road, took out my cellphone and looked for a menu on their website. I was in the mood for some crepes, and maybe some escargot. Low and behold, they serve both of those dishes, so my mother and I headed over there... only to show up at around 2:00 pm, when they were about to close the kitchen. We almost walked out of the restaurant in disappointment, when the waitress told us that the chef had time to cook an entree for us. Thank goodness we saw the menu ahead of time, otherwise, we would've wasted too much time trying to decide before time ran out. Before we sat down, we asked, "are you sure? We don't want to hold you up if you're planning to close soon." She assured us that it was okay, so we accepted her offer.<br /> <br /> I quickly glanced at the menu to see if the item I saw online was listed, and sure enough it was. So, I told her what I wanted without any hesitation. I ordered the poulet grillé (chicken crepe with tomatoes, red onions, and pesto), while my mother asked for the saumon grillé (salmon crepe with red onions, fresh dill, and capers). While we were waiting for our meals, we couldn't help but listen to the music playing in the restaurant. My mother wanted to know the singers and the names of the songs, so I pulled out my phone and Shazamed them. Apparently the waitress noticed what I was doing, so she cranked the volume a little higher on the stereo system in order for Shazam to do its work on my phone. She goes to me and says, "here, let me help you out with that", so she took my cellphone out of my hand, and literally held it up to the speaker, and sure enough, we managed to get a couple of songs for my mother.<br /> <br /> Our food arrives, and I must say, I was not disappointed, and neither was my mother. Our crepes were cooked and seasoned perfectly. We've been to a couple of crepe places in the city, and although they're pretty decent, this place has just surpassed all of the other establishments we've dined at. The crepes were so delicious that my mother was contemplating on coming back to the restaurant for their dinner service. Just as the waitress asked us how our meals were, it gave my mother a perfect opportunity to ask her about the dinner service at the restaurant. The waitress kindly suggested that we make a reservation, considering that some evenings are busy while others are quiet, and each week varies. She also added that every Sunday evening they had live music; we'll have to check that out someday.<br /> <br /> We felt bad that we showed up at precisely 30 minutes before the kitchen was scheduled to close. The next time we plan to dine here, we'll pay close attention to the times posted for the restaurant. Otherwise, our waitress, as well as the chef went above and beyond the call of duty, and we were eternally grateful. We figured that if any waiter/ waitress was willing to put up with a couple of brand new customers, provide quality service, and serve delicious food, they deserve a huge tip from us.

We've been going to Chouchou just about every week since it opened. The food is just fabulous and so is the service. Don't miss the delicious fruit and chocolate tarts.
