A friend took me to this place in Hell's Kitchen for their jazz brunch Sunday afternoon. As a main dish, I got the chicken crepe, which was not bad, but somewhat more akin to a Chicken Tetrazzini than what I think of as a crepe, but the creme brulee I had for dessert was some of the best creme brulee I've ever had, including in France. The caramel crust on top was more carbonized than usual, almost black in places, and the rest of the dessert was very creamy.

Also, the singers were terrific, though my friend tells me that the quality of the open mike varies, not only with the singers, but depending on whether their regular pianist is there or not (he was there today). The meal was not expensive - $10.95 for the main and $5.95 for the dessert, which was served in a rather large, oblong bowl. I don't know if my tea was extra, as my friend paid for the meal (payback for subbing for him at a rehearsal). The music fee was $3/person. Though I think that was voluntary, it was certainly well worth it.
