Take a look around you.

Record the time, and what you’re doing.

Because everything you ever thought about crepes is about to change, thanks to a new high-end creperie rising up on Newbury. With a full bar.

Behold: The Creperie on Newbury, a potentially revolutionary lunch and dinner-ish house of Roasted Quail Crepes, French wine and cereal, opening a week from today at the Newbury Guest House in the Back Bay.

If someone took a cozy-but-modern creperie and threw it in that transporter thingy from The Fly along with the walls of a recording studio (read: noise-reducing acoustic paneling) and attached the whole thing to a 19th-century brownstone turned boutique hotel, you’d basically have this (always good to have a hotel room within reach of dinner).

Paint this in your mind: it’s next week. You’ve just locked up the last of your holiday shopping list (Mom’s going to love that Ove Glove) before you and a slinky date plan to meet here.

You’ll belly up to the eight-seat bar, survey the almost exclusively French wine and champagne list (this is a crepe joint) and then decide whether it’s a classic crepe night, or something more exotic. Think: Lobster Newburg Crepes, Peking Duck Crepes and Tuna Tataki Crepes, which are basically sushi with rice crepes instead of seaweed.

Raw fish and crepes. Together at last.
