The food was excellent! I went with two friends for lunch, and we all loved the savory and delicious crepes. We ordered 3 of the crepes and shared with each other (salmon, brie and apple, and the blackened chicken, along with 2 desserts). The server was so very nice and helpful. We all enjoyed Chez Machin equally. I would so recommend this restaurant to others, and can't wait to go back!

Unusual selection of crepes, plus some other menu items. Good food and service overall. Somewhat limited seating, but is not too crowded.

From Our Editors

Qualité de vie. That's what Chez Machin's owner Diane found while living in France, and on many days, that "quality of life" meant eating lots and lots of crepes. Diane has since returned to America, but she didn't completely leave France behind. After all, diners can often spot her sporting a trademark red beret, and her bistro's menu reads like a love letter to rural French cuisine.

That means crepes, of course. To make them, chefs layer ultra thin pancakes over sweet fillings such as the La Délice's nutella, vanilla custard, and raspberry jam. Savory crepes grant the option to build your own custom buckwheat or white crepes with fillings such as smoked salmon. Chefs venture into other areas of French cuisine as well, from croque monsieurs for lunch to boeuf bourguignon for dinner—either of which pair well with the bar's selection of beer, cider, and wine.

Yet for all of the French atmosphere, there's one part of Chez Machin that's decidedly stateside: the artwork. A desert abstract, created by film director Gus Van Sant, stretches along one side of the bistro's covered patio. Black and white paintings from local artists Yo and Peach Mutsu line the hallway, and other paintings and drawings rotate in and out of the dining rooms, turning the restaurant into an ever-changing art gallery.
