Marco Polo

If you are shopping at the Union Sq. Green Market, do
drop in for lunch at this new attractive little
storefront space --
Marco Polo Cafe & Caterers, 15 East 15th St.

It's run by the husband and wife team of Marco Moreira
and JoAnn Makovitzky. Delicious fresh salads from the
produce of the Green Market are the focal point. They
made me a plate of a sampling of the different salads
to go with my skirt steak sandwich. This sure beats
the food offerings at City Bakery hands down.
Desserts so far have been limited to fruit tarts and
some creme brulee (there will probably be more
selections as they settle in to their new digs).

Right now, it's only open on weekdays. It will open
on Saturdays too during the fall.
