Mache Bistro is one of those perfect cozy places that everyone should have in their neighborhood. Everything about this place is just terrific, from the knowledgeable, professional service, the wines (both white and red), the delicious food, the welcoming atmosphere, there is not much room for improvement, which is a good thing. I for one would love it if they opened a branch near me at home :)
This was our second visit to Mache and it was every bit as good as the first. We started out with an excellent duck appetizer, followed by a bowl of mussels for me and sword fish for my husband. The mussels were juicy and plump, perfectly cooked in a flavorful broth, and the sword fish was truly outstanding. Sometimes sword fish can taste strong, or “gamey” but not this sword fish. It was grilled and served over a wonderful polenta and my husband claims it was one of the best fish dishes he has had. Having tasted it, I concur.
I wish we did not live 10 hours from here or we’d be much more frequent customers. This is truly a neighborhood gem and the difficulty in getting prime time reservations is totally understandable once you eat here. Don't miss this place!
