  1. West Bank on 42nd st, food not quite as good but a favorite among theater goers and actors also

    West Bank Cafe
    407 West 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036

    1. How about Nizza, Marseille's sister restaurant next door?

      630 9th Avenue, New York, NY 10036

        I went for dinner a few years ago and enjoyed the food and overall experience. Just haven't had the occasion to return since. Have you been recently? I take it it's still good?

          No, I have not been there recently, but friends have & were pleased with their meal. Can't say more than that, but it seems the easiest choice for "restaurant that's comparable to Marseille" without being Marseille. :-)

      2. I avoided Joe Allen for years, but went last year when I didn't have a choice, and really enjoyed it. I've been back several times since.

        1. Comparable in what way? Price? Cuisine? Orso is just slightly more expensive, but definitely a worthwhile alternative. Also Toloache.

          1. I'm not sure what you mean by "comparable to Marseille," but I like Trattoria Trecolori in that area.
