Special Days and Times for President’s Day Weekend
Like the French family-owned eateries after which it was modeled, Restaurant Marché closes for two weeks every winter. The return to work, like the return of swallows to Capistrano, marks an annual rebirth, and with renewed vigor comes the release of the Winter Menu 2015, and the annual Valentine’s Day Chef’s tasting menu.

A romantic 35-minute ferry ride across Puget Sound transports diners from Seattle to the heart of Winslow on Bainbridge Island, where Marché serves local fare prepared using French techniques. The cozy dining room is always filled with fresh flowers; crafted cocktails and a compelling wine list afford diners a chance to settle into relaxed comfort, as they surrender to the culinary artistry of one of the Pacific Northwest’s culinary icons.

About Restaurant Marché

Chef Greg Atkinson procures the best local vegetables, foraged mushrooms, wild seafood, and pastured meats from nearby farms, fields and waterways, coaxing these ingredients to flavorful perfection everyday. Wild King Salmon is grilled over an open fire and served with heirloom Beluga Lentils grown in Eastern Washington, Duck and Foie Gras from Pleasant View Farms is pan-roasted, transformed into confit, and Country pâté. Organic, pastured, Skagit River Ranch Wagyu beef is grilled to order or slow-braised with island-grown vegetables. House-made bread with sea-salted cultured butter and crisp frites from local potatoes in rice bran oil, served with house-made ketchup and aioli are justifiably legendary.
