With great food and a convenient location near several Broadway theaters, Marseille is perpetually packed. The Mediterranean creations are continually impressive, including the bouillabaisse, the signature dish of the region for which the restaurant is named—a mélange of mussels, shrimp, and white fish in a fragrant broth, topped with a garlicky crouton and served with rouille on the side. Also worth a bite are two is the charred octopus with fennel and tomatoes. Leave
room for the spongy beignets with chocolate and raspberry dipping sauces.
