Crepes have long been, and continue to be, a feature on the menus at fine restaurants in New Orleans. Prepared tableside, they make an exciting and dramatic presentation in the dining rooms of Delmonico. The warm chocolate together with the strawberries makes a decadent dessert, but one that is not too overwhelming.
Strawberry-flavored liqueur can be found at liquor stores. You could substitute other fruit-flavored liqueurs in this recipe, such as kirsch (or kirschwasser), the clear spirit made from distilling the juice of small black cherries, or the raspberry-flavored Chambord.
Remember, safety is foremost in the kitchen; please be careful when flambeing foods at home.
