Hargitai’s: Home to tasty crêpes

Many think of thin, light crêpes as a French delicacy, available only in luxurious Parisian restaurants. But for Maria Branigan, it is a snack close to home. Born in Budapest, Hungary, crêpe was a staple food in her household – she even ate them for lunch or dinner.
