Marseilles booked/ What's similar nearby?
Hate to answer my own question, but . . . I found availability at Trattoria Trecolori.
The others I was considering: West Bank Cafe, Pigalle, Gaby's, Resette and Cafe Un Deux Trois. So bummed Marseilles cannot take us as it is a favorite of mine.
What's the best of the lot mentioned above? Want to keep the price moderate/similar to Marseilles.
Trattoria Trecolori is a favorite of mine and many other Hounds. Well-prepared homestyle Italian fare is served by a friendly, efficient staff in a large space with very attractive decor.
West Bank Cafe is another of our favs in that area. Delicious New American cuisine, excellent service, and very pleasing ambiance.
We've had several lunches at Gaby, and the French cuisine was very good. My husband and I still drool whenever we recall the fabulous profiteroles. However, those meals were not recent, so I have no idea if the quality is still the same.
As for Un Deux Trois, we ate there several years ago, and the food was just s-so-so. Not a place I'd return to or recommend.
We've not been to Pigalle, which has the same ownership as Marseille but doesn't reap the same high praise, or Resette.
