Monsieur Marcel has been open for over 25 years and is one of the largest and most well-known tenants at the market. The space contains several different concepts, including a full gourmet grocery with its own cheese shop and patisserie, a seafood market perfect for picking up fresh fish to cook later at home, and a sit-down bistro. It’s certainly a great spot to hang out with a wine and cheese flight and dodge the manic weekend crowds, but we like Monsieur Marcel best for weekday lunch. It’s still lively (with particularly good people-watching), but calm enough that the friend or client you invited will feel immediately comfortable. We like the perfectly gooey quiche lorraine or steak-frites, but if you really want to make a statement, do the $39 fondue service.
