Marliave is a Downtown Crossing restaurant that’s been around since people unironically used the phrase “23 skiddo” (and knew what it meant). It serves French-ish food in a classic space and has a particularly good cheese and charcuterie selecion. It’s a solid option for pre-theater dining, or for whenever you’re looking for an excuse to wear your monocle.
