Driven by a passion for market-inspired ingredients and classic French cooking techniques, Florent and Amelia Marneau have created a truly modern French bistro in the heart of Orange County. For decades, the couple worked separately in some of the best kitchens in France and Orange County. With Marché Moderne, they have followed this natural evolution by combining their culinary careers as independent restaurateurs. The contemporary French Bistro which has been critically acclaimed since its opening in spring of 2007, is located at The Penthouse at South Coast Plaza, level three, adjacent to Nordstrom.

"... which isn't a good place to start. We found this place online (as we were visiting from out of town), thought it looked nice; but when the driver dropped us off at a mall, we were off to a bad start. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings; the food was good, though not great. The most disappointing part was that the server barely explained any of the food we were being served or the wines we were drinking... hearing about what you're being served (and why, with the pairings) is a major part of doing a tasting menu. Honestly, just felt it was overpriced for the experience; thank goodness I had excellent company in my dining companion."

A contemporary American restaurant set in D.C.'s 1st firehouse, Sixth Engine uses classic techniques to produce comfort foods with a touch of refinement while providing polished service in a comfortable setting.

"We headed here for an early dinner prior to a Caps game. Food was very good; plenty of options for both grown-ups and kids (who all love the tater tots!) and a solid beer selection. I do enjoy the setting; service was friendly and professional... I'll be back!!!"
