Regis Crepy (of The Great House, Lavenham) and his son Alex (who has worked with the Gaucho group) have launched Amélie, a "fast-casual dining venture" in Cambridge. The USP is flammekueche, a sort of fresh pizza from Alsace, and drinks are served from an old Citroen Van.
Harden's survey result
Look out for the bright yellow Citroën van, if you want to try veteran restaurateur Regis Crépy’s latest venture, selling Alsatian pizza-type Flammekueche in a Cambridge food court. For a tasty, cheap ’n’ cheerful snack that’s a little out of the ordinary, these “light”, “fresh-tasting” and “reasonably priced” wafers of bread dough complete with toppings are just the job.
Suffolk restaurateur Regis Crépy, who ran the Great House in Lavenham for 32 years, launched this new Alsatian venture – in a bright yellow Citroën parked in Grafton centre’s funky new food court – with his son Alex in summer 2018; the headline event comes sweet or savoury, and is rounded out by tapas-style starters.
