Chez Marianne information
Heaving at lunchtime, Chez Marianne translates as elbow-to-elbow dining beneath age-old beams on copious portions of felafel, hummus, aubergine purée and 25-odd other zakouski (hors d'oeuvre). Fare is Sephardic rather than Ashkenazi (the norm at most Pletzl eateries), not Beth Din kosher. A hole-in-the-wall window sells felafel in pita (€7) to munch on the move.
