The fruit crepes are amazing w/ whipcream and almonds. The beef/potatoe/carrot puff pastry is the best savory dish we have tried.

The La Mariniere crepe is fantastic. Savory with a delicate mix of salmon and goat cheese. The sweet crepes make for a delightful dessert, I recommend the vanilla custard with berries mix. Great service and ambience!

Wonderful place on Hawthorne Street :) I've had both savory and sweet crepes ama they were delicious. The decor inside is quaint but not pretentious. I will be back again!

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.
