Bistro Marquee Now Open in the Former Carafe Space

New, 8 comments

[Avila, 5/16/13]

The space once home to Carafe and the short-lived Market now brings a different concept to downtown's theater-growing crowds: Bistro Marquee, a self-described "French-inspired" spot from Thirst Wine Bar owners Gary Kneski and Leslie Palmer, officially opens today.

Chef Rick Widmayer, an alum of the Southern-styled Screen Door, offers a seasonally inspired menu during lunch and dinner. Dinner offerings are separated into small- and large-plate sections, the latter featuring pan-roasted rockfish, grilled leg of lamb, and duck confit with lentils. A separate section is devoted to housemade pastas — like taglarini with Gulf shrimp and a take on stroganoff with red-wine-marinated tenderloin. Lunch offers a half-dozen sandwiches (like an oyster po'boy and roast pork shoulder sandwich), pasta, salads, and vegetable-focused sides.

Bistro Marquee is open now. Hours: 11:30a.m. to 2p.m., 4p.m. to 10p.m., Monday through Friday; 4p.m. to 10p.m. Saturday.
