Wary of the snobbish notoriety and inflated prices attached to French restaurants? Refreshing exceptions are to be found. And what better place for one than the historic F armers' Market on Fairfax and Third, with its tireless hustle and bustle and its strolling and lingering crowds? All outdoors, Monsieur Marcel is pleasantly appointed, offering seating at rustic tables and a wrap-around bar. The menu delights with a broad choice of hearty, well-balanced and delicious French specialties. The ratatouille and the white wine mussels are second to none, at least in the price range. And the wine list is startlingly expansive, accentuating affordable and mouthwatering French and Mediterranean varietals. The market attached to the restaurant is hands-down one of the most superbly supplied gourmet shops in town. - Kate Sobol
I TAKE MY DAUGHTER HERE AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK AND WE LIVE IN THE VALLEY. SHE ALWAYS GETS THE FRIES AND A COKE, AND I GET THE DUCK. THEN WE GO SHOPPING IN THE MARKET NEXT DOOR, FOR PATE,CHEESE,AND MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GOURMET HIMALANIA SALT. YOUR SALT DOES MATTER!! (NOT CHEAP) BUT WORTH IT.
The French know that good food tastes better at a cozy outdoor table surrounded by hustle and bustle. This gem in L.A.'s landmark Farmers Market serves reliably good, simple dishes on the covered patio and bar in front of its gourmet market. Sit down in wicker chairs with friends, order a steaming pot of velvety cheese fondue and a couple bottles of wine, and you may think you've been transported to the Left Bank.
The fondue is great, and a great value for the price. The happy hour weekdays is good for a wide variety of wines. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a super low-key wine bar in LA. It is situated within the Farmer's Market, and is a great place for people watching. But, it's quiet enough to chat with friends, yet would not be an uncomfortable place on a first date.
This is our favorite place to relax, have a bottle of wine, and watch people, while eating delicious food. The croque monsieur is delicious, as are the french fries. Sit at the outward-facing bar and people watch or grab a nook in the corner for a romantic meal.
French food here isn't overdressed. It is what you would get at a neighborhood place in France. Most of the waiters are French. The service could be better, but ambling seems to be part of the ambiance.
