I love the independent businesses in New York, they are the heart and soul of the city! In this section you will find bookstores, cafés, restaurants, arts & crafts markets and more. It's an ongoing project to list the best of indie New York so visit often to discover the real New York City. Experience the hidden gems and places that New Yorkers frequent. I am not compensated for writing these reviews and I'm only writing about the places that I like.


Marseille, Midtown, Manhattan

Marseille has been a favorite restaurant for many years and it is where my family often has celebration dinners. The majority of the restaurants that you will find on my site are less expensive. Marseille is a French bistro and there dinner prices for a main course range from $20-36. The atmosphere is very French without the stuffiness of many of the top French restaurants in NYC and also the prices. I have always been very pleased with everything about this restaurant, Fabulous food. If you're looking for a nice French meal this is the place.

Marseille - 630 Ninth Avenue near 44th Street
