MarketBar

foodie | Nov 4, 2003 07:57 PM

What do people think of MarketBar? I've been there twice, and enjoyed it both times. The first time I had veal meatballs to start and spaghetti carbonara; the second I had a salad pretentiously entitled "Lola Rossa" and a mussel risotto. I liked everything I had, particularly the carbonara and the risotto. The Lola Rossa salad was very good, although the lettuce was not red leaf as advertised. Simiarly, the mussel risotto was rich and tasty, with the mussels adding a nice but not overpowering flavor. My companion had steamed mussels, which I thought were also good, albeit not quite up to those found at Plouf.

Incidentally, the place is now very crowded at lunch, which says something about the economy, the Ferry Plaza development, or both.
