We ate lunch here twice. We don’t do dinners as often as lunches anymore. Dinners servings usually have more food that we can or should eat in one setting, plus they are usually higher priced than lunches. But this restaurant provided some great choices. We ate on a Friday and a Saturday, and the menu was slightly different each day.
Janet had the squash blossom pizza on Friday and the Willapa Bay Oysters on Saturday. Since fried oysters are her favorite, they are a true test of the quality of a restaurant, Marche passed with flying colors. On Friday I had a smoke pork sandwich and small salad. They were both excellent, the salad dressing was house, strawberry, balsamic, vinaigrette. I usually don’t care a lot for vinaigrettes, but this was excellent. Saturday was the Steak Frites, and it was one of the best done pieces of beef I have had in a long time… of course since I seldom eat red meat, getting a good one when I do is important. Two days, 4 excellent meals, $30 a day for both lunches, not bad…
If your in Eugene, you can’t go wrong with the Marche.
