We stopped at Chez Maman and were blown away by the food...so good! I highly recommend the beef tartare as an appetizer followed by the mushroom crepes. Cute place, good service, great food (and wine).

Chez Maman is the kind of restaurant I really like. It is not fancy, but has simple charm, friendly service, and excellent food. Chez Maman is basically a cafe on a street corner. The restaurant is relatively small, with seating for about 10 on the...More
