David Lee Roth, Steven Tyler, Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Axl Rose — you can find them all in Huntington Beach these days, along with dozens of other classic rock and metal artists.
OK, not in the flesh. Rather, in the form of crepes.
"It's my love of the music I grew up with," laughed Frank Bennett, who, along with his wife, Marty, runs the Rockin' Crepes restaurant at 8943 Atlanta Ave. He was talking about what inspired them to open the eatery two years ago.
"We'd been traveling with our a son a great deal, and we always saw how popular crepe places were in other cities. So we thought we'd give it a go here at home. The music theme just felt like a fun way to pay tribute to classic bands."
To that end, Rockin' Crepes is themed sort of like a club, plastered with band artwork, posters and other bits and pieces of rock 'n' roll ephemera. As for the menu, as Frank said, it's a musical homage. In the mood for an AC/DC (cheddar and Swiss cheese with thin sliced Danish ham)? How about a Quiet Riot (fresh, thinly sliced chicken breast, provolone cheese, tomatoes, sweet onions and pesto sauce)?
