Good crepes - and I think they're Czech!

Went for brunch at Doma, a slightly pretentious but tasty cafe in the West Village, I think on Perry Street just west of 7th Avenue. I had been craving crepes, but lately I've had some very mediocre ones - at the Creperie on Ludlow Street, for example, and at Bacchus in Brooklyn. So I got what honestly might be better as a dessert crepe - bananas, nutella, strawberries, and whipped cream. Oh, it was good. The right amount of sweetness, a nice moisture to the crepe.

One of the people I was with got a ham-and-cheese crepe which I tried. That was really good, too. The thing I found interesting was that the menu seemed to identify them as Czech crepes, calling my dish, for example, doma picinki or something (I'm mangling the spelling). I raising this because there was recently a lament on the outer boroughs board that decent Czech food can't realy be found in this city in the context of a review of Zlata Praha.

Funny, now, my two favorite crepes in the city are at this place and at NL, the Dutch restaurant on Sullivan Street. Well, I'm sure there are decent French crepes somewhere out there.
