I've said it before and I'll say it again: Lady M makes the best crepe cakes in the city. Delicate, and positively ethereal, they're impossible to top. But there are other good ones around town that deserve mention, like the cakes from Bosie Tea Parlor, Bottega Falai, and now Du Jour Bakery in Park Slope. This is their Nutella Crepe Cake ($5), featuring at least a dozen fresh crepe layers, each separated with cool Nutella cream. The cream is whipped and unexpectedly light...I bet it would be heavenly over a cup of hot cocoa (one can dream). The cake is completed with a final top of straight-up Nutella and crushed, toasted hazelnuts.
