Market Cafe Restaurant Review

: Market Café is a quintessential budget bistro in an area with few stylish choices. Chrome-rimmed barstools line the white-tile bar, vinyl booths sequester hip West Siders, and nothing on the menu is over $15, including the steak frites. Entrées include big bowls of pasta and seared tuna steak. If you're a Javits Center attendee, Market Café is the antidote to convention center food.
