Now Open: Les Enfants Delice Takeaway Shop

les enfants

Les Enfants de Bohème opened for business at 177 Henry St. last summer on a block with few dining options. The new project from Stefan Jonot, who ran the very popular Les Enfants Terribles on Canal Street, included a publicly accessible outdoor seating area. Now he’s added a companion business, Les Enfants Delice, an annex offering to-go items day and night.

The official debut will be Saturday, but the takeout shop soft opened today. The concept was inspired by the the boulangeries/creperies that are found everywhere in France. Cathy Lang Ho, a partner in the business (and Jonot’s wife) told us, “It’s meant to be a friendly, unpretentious local shop where people go on a regular basis, to grab their croissant and coffee in the morning on the way to work, or a baguette sandwich or quiche for lunch, or a baguette on the way home.”

They believe the new spot is the only place on the Lower East Side offering authentic Crêpes Bretonnes (made with buckwheat/gluten-free flour).  There will be savory standbys like ham and cheese, mushroom and gruyere, etc., but also dessert crepes.

Les Enfants Delice will be open 7:45 a.m. 8 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. weekends. The outdoor area, part of the city’s Street Seats Program, will be expanded in the weeks ahead. You can see the menu below.
