Cafe Marquesa Restaurant Review: Housed in the exclusive and historic Marquesa Hotel compound, Cafe Marquesa offers the seasonal fare of chef Susan Ferry, and it has been drawing connoisseurs since the early 1990s. The menu changes daily; possibilities could include tea-smoked quail with micro greens in blood orange vinaigrette; duck sliders with Tetilla cheese and umami ketchup; porcini-dusted diver scallops with herb risotto; and blue cheese-crusted filet mignon with Boursin mashed potatoes. Look for lemon soufflé encased in lavender meringue for dessert. The wine selections rival the cuisine for quality, and the wine-savvy servers can suggest boutique labels if you’re feeling adventurous.
