Food tip: Seafood crepes at River Tavern
River Tavern, 23 Main St., Chester
I only have to describe this dish for you to realize why I'm recommending it: crepes are stuffed with seafood (fresh, bountiful shrimp, calamari and more), bacon, squash, corn, red pepper, onions and lemon cream sauce. I mostly ignored the greens that came beside the crepes because, well, did you see what was inside those crepes?! It cost $18. A friend I lunched with loved her meal, too, which was a grilled salmon salad with tomatoes, potatoes, cucumber, zucchini, squash and basil pesto ($20). There's lots to tempt you on the River Tavern menu, and, based on what I've eaten there so far, the offerings are wonderfully prepared.
