The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

It was 8:30 on Friday night, and I’d had a long week. I was craving something sweet (like chocolate) but also something substantial enough to stand in for dinner. I headed to Hildebrandt’s on Hillside Avenue in Williston Park for an ice-cream soda at the counter, but my heart wasn’t in it: It was cold out and Hildebrandt’s has no vestibule.

Inspiration struck: Fresco Creperie & Café, just down the block from Hildebrandt’s. What usually stops me from going to Fresco is that they only take cash — which I am often short on. But I had in my wallet nearly $15, so I strode purposefully in, ordered a chocolate-almond crepe ($6.95) and almost swooned at how perfectly it hit the spot.

Fresco Creperie & Cafe is at 72 Hillside Ave. Williston Park, 516-280-6630,
