Us AFM-ers are always looking for great new places to do lunch near our office. And a new spot just opened that might make the perfect spot for a light lunch (and some gelato) this summer. Chez Vous Crépes & Gelato at The SHOPS Gainey Village in Scottsdale was opened a few weeks ago by a sweet French couple, Richard and Isabella Horvath.

The Chef’s Choice is a perfect light summertime option which the Chez Vous is a great comfort food. (All crepes are served with a salad as well.)
For dessert, a scoop of lemon or pistachio gelato will do just fine. But we loved the sweet crepes–some filled with Nutella, other chock-full of berries.
