Concierge.com's insider take:
Sitting very pretty on a narrow cobblestone street near the harbor, Marv & Ben (Marrow & Bone) is one cozy haven. The warren of rooms spread out through the historic building exude a dressed-down charm; a mural of painted birch trees frames the ground-floor dining room, and the largest second-floor room is all glowing apricot walls and blond-wood tables. The eclectic local crowd comes for the bargain prices, a very cheerful staff, and a menu that knows how to have easygoing fun with its locally sourced ingredients. Among standout signature dishes: smoked eel laid over leeks in a sweet cherry reduction sauce; pork cheeks with green cabbage; and a creamy lemon mousse.—Raphael Kadushin
