Marseille (44th & 9th) is Southern French as the name suggests. Not your typical french menu. Look on menupages.com for their menu and those of other suggested restaurants. Across the street is Turkish Cuisine - a cute Turkish place with a somewhat standard menu, but very enjoyable food. Both are very reasonably priced. We've done well there on 2 separate occasions. If you get a lot of Turkish in CA you may not want to bother.
