This French bistro was a huge winner, selected by 12 survey responders in five categories. Its fans include Secret Burger and Vegas Test Kitchen founder Jolene Mannina, Chef/Host Lorraine Blanco Moss, one French celebrity chef who chose to remain anonymous and famed seafood chef Rick Moonen, who named it as the place near his home where he dines most often.
Marche Bacchus lives up to their praise with its location on Desert Shores’ picturesque and tranquil Lake Jacqueline, tables along the water, an onsite wine shop with 950 labels (which you can purchase to enjoy with your meal or take home) and refined French cuisine in a casual yet elegant atmosphere.
Both traditional and contemporary French dishes offer something for everyone, including a variety of meat and seafood dishes, as well as vegetarian and vegan specials that change daily for lunch and dinner. Dinner offers French classics like French onion soup, a selection of artisan cheeses, seared foie gras, coq au vin, magret duck breast and three types of caviar. The daily brunch includes reasonably-priced sandwiches like croque madame (Swiss, ham and fried egg), which come with salad and choice of potato. And the recent addition of James Beard Award-winner Bradley Ogden to the team, as culinary director, has brought several of his New American classics (like his blue cheese souffle) to the menu.
