Marseille in Hell’s Kitchen

Can you put a bustling French port town in Hell’s Kitchen?

Marseille restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen is a place that I pass by frequently on my trips to and from work.   It opened in this location in 2001.  And, although I have passed it numerous times on my walks to and from work, I had yet to venture in for meal.  A couple years ago, I was considering going to for Restaurant Week but decided upon Aquavit as a reservation slot opened up later during the two week period. Marseille, like its French namesake, the Mediterrean facing port town, features a number of fish entrees including grilled salmon, golden snapper, and the de rigeur moules provencal on the regular dinner menu. However, if you go for brunch, as we did this past weekend, you are treated to a lighter more agrarian inspired selections.

They weren’t kidding when they said “Bowl” of coffee au lait! I loved the little lion heads on the side that you could use to raise the bowl to drink. Un petit…warning though: remember that this drink is not for the lactose intolerant!
