Crepe Outdoors: Indulge Your Sweet and Savory Sides at BTTR
Crepe Outdoors has an urban/tropical theme.
Crepe Outdoors indulges both your sweet and savory sides with fresh, warm crepes filled with a variety of ingredients.
If the truck or the owners look familiar, you've seen them around before. Crepes Outdoor is the former Wing Commander. Owners Bill and Allison Cosens changed the truck's concept from wings to crepes, mainly to beat the heat.
"Our wings were awesome. They were the best in Miami, hands down," Cosens said, "but when you have two fryers and two grills going, there's no way that even two air conditioners can help."
A crepe concept was actually their first truck idea, and when the Cosens

started Wing Commander, friends and family were initially surprised
that they went with "wings." Crepe Outdoors brings the couple's food
truck business full circle.
The truck has been redesigned, with a
colorful graffiti-inspired motif. "We wanted to use every color in the
art store, to make the design look urban but tropical," Cosens said.
crepe is named after a friend or family member. Allie's Comfort Food
($7) is a savory blend of blue cheese, carmelized onions, and bacon.
Quinn's Hunger Quencher ($9), named for the couple's son, is filled
with Angus steak, select goat cheese, carmelized onion, sautéed
mushrooms, and special sauce. Bill's Big Bite ($6) is a sweet treat
with cheesecake filling and a choice of Nutella or berry purée. Lala's
Lovely ($5), named for daughter Lauren, blends Nutella and peanut
butter in a warm crepe. Many other crepes are available -- all well
under $10. Crepe Outdoors will be at BTTR tonight, so stop by and try a crepe.
