Brunch at Marseille--great rec!

After reading many reviews of Marseille (44th & 9th), I decided to try it out for brunch yesterday afternoon. It was a great recommendation! Thank you so much. I had a drink called le pamplemousse, which was a well crafted grapefruit martini, and my husband had a ruby red sunrise, which was equally delicious. We both started off with a nutella croissant--which was very rich, but very fresh. The croissant was perfectly flaky and buttery--and the nutella took it to a whole new place! I had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon. The eggs were cooked perfectly--which is a big thing with me. The hollandaise sauce was perfect, and the smoked salmon was delicious. It was served with a very small mesculin salad tossed in a lemon vinagrette and a small amount of diced pan-fried potatoes tossed in basil oil. My husband had the steak frites--which he loved. The steak was cooked perfectly, and the french fries were superb. The best part was the dessert! I ordered the carmel apple ravioli served with almond frozen custard. This was amazing--and all I can think about is when I can go back for more! I was so into my dessert that I cannot remember what my husband ordered! We also ordered cappuccinos--which were great. The total bill with tip was only $95.
Thanks again for the rec--I hope this helps someone else. If you have been to Marseille for dinner--let me know what you thought--and what you ordered...
Lovely food at Marseille. The service was spectacularly awful. No cutlery. No refills. 25 minutes to get entrees. It might have been just my server though -- everyone in his station had problems.
kimie, thanks for the report. I too discovered Marseille from this Board (thanks, RGR) and have been for lunch and dinner. If you do a search of this Board you can find my report and others.
