Paris in Town Le Bistro is going nutty over Nutella. The chocolate-hazelnut spread from the 1940s that Europeans eat like peanut butter has made a foothold in the U.S.
Fans everywhere are combining it with other nut butters, bananas, berries of every ilk and cake to create sandwiches, crepes and desserts.
Paris in Town’s Le Bistro, in Downtown at the Gardens, is celebrating World Nutella Day all day Sunday with free mini-crepes filled with Nutella. Their menu features eight Nutella crepes with combos of the spread and ingredients such as bananas, strawberries; honey and lemon; blackberry confit; and banana, Grand Marnier. All deserve whipped cream on top.
In honor of the spread’s World Day there will be games, prizes and give-aways, and a sculpture made from Nutella jars outside in the courtyard.
Through Sunday, diners also can order a Nutella Martini ($12) at the bar, garnished with fresh strawberries.
Paris in Town Le Bistro serves a French bistro menu daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
