Marche Artisan Foods, Nashville, TN

Marche Artisan Foods Restaurant Review

: Marché Artisan Foods is located in the Walnut Exchange, a former telephone switching building. The simple décor lets all the emphasis focus on the food. At brunch on Saturday and Sunday mornings, a line curls at the door to get a table at Marché, but the wait is more than worthwhile. Relax with a Bellini as waiters whoosh by, bearing quiches and omelets to delighted diners. Chef Margot McCormack first stole Nashville’s heart with her fine-dining restaurant Margot, and just around the corner in East Nashville this sunny café with bistro and communal tables offers the same dedication to organic and local ingredients at a lower price point. Lunch and dinner feature seasonally inspired soups, salads and crêpes and simple, rustic choices such as a potpie or duck confit with lentils. Classic sweets are seasonal, too, such as pumpkin pie and apple spice cake with apple-caramel mousse in cooler months. The wine selection is limited and largely serves as a teaser for what's in store at Margot.
