Marché Maman

Bistro in SoHo & Chinatown

Offering a fresh French take on all that Little Italy has to offer, this clean cafe and 'secret garden' feels like it's been picked up and placed here from Provence. Enjoy fantastic avocado tartinettes with lox ($10) or other items from the rotating menu. Its 'Milkmade Ice Cream' is tops – the 'blue corn waffle cone' is a mouthwatering best seller.

The owner is the creator of the Yellow Table blog ( and does cooking workshops here as well.
