While the main attraction at this Hawthorne crêperie is of course the crêpes, Chez Machin boasts a menu that gives its own stuffed pancakes a run for their money. Try another French classic, a grilled but not greasy croque monsieur ($7.50). The ham-and-cheese sandwich is served with a gorgeous, leafy salad that gives a preview to other, more sophisticated greens on the menu like the rock shrimp and avocado Salade Bistro ($6.25-$9.25). Pair it with a light European beer and have a seat in the back sunporch for an out-of-Portland (and country) experience. (KP)
