AAA Inspector Notes
Morocco meets Marseilles at this low-key, neighborhood bistro where locals are lucky enough to feast on les moules and merguez sausage whenever the mood strikes. The aforementioned mussels are served four ways—try them Marseilles-style in a bouillabaisse with crostini and rouille, or in a lush but delicate saffron-leek cream sauce. Of course there is a fine steak frites on the menu, as well as the accessible roasted chicken gussied up with truffle-mashed potatoes and rosemary jus.
