Dig in for Couscous Sunday at Marseille

The french eatery in the South End is getting ready to celebrate its first anniversary.

We hope you’re hungry — Marseille is serving not only a gorgeous aesthetic from the bar to the dining room, but also delicious plates of modern French cuisine. Chef Robert Fathman introduced the Sunday Couscous special, so we had to go to the South End restaurant to check it out.

You’ll find the restaurant conveniently located at 560 Harrison Ave. next to PRB Boulangerie, where Marseille gets all its fresh baked breads.

The menu features something for everyone — from $2 oysters to the charcuterie board complete with cheeses, pickled veggies, jammy eggs, and olives. We also tried the brandade (salt cod croquettes), saumon fumé (smoked salmon), and the pommes frites (french fries).

The main show was of course the couscous. The $38 shareable dish is made with chicken and lamb then served with heaping helpings of veggies and chickpea stew. Pro tip:There is a classic version and a vegetarian offering. Stop by any Sunday from 4 to 10 p.m. to taste this for yourself.
