Without being the slightest bit trendy this bistro in the heart of Pike Place Market embodies a lot of trends: classic French bistro fare, moderate prices, industrial appointments (stark bar stools, open filament bulbs), and a decidedly 21-and-over emphasis in the form of an enthused, just-pedantic-enough wine program. Elegantly haunted by the ghost of its former persona Campagne, Marché aims younger in look and in price tag—retaining the Seattle view over Market and bay and the same careful chef, but moving the food into the more casual realm of herby organic omelets with perfectly moistened arugula salads; cones of crispy pommes frites with lush lemony mayo; meaty dry-roasted mussels with bacon and garlic, smoky and citrus kissed and swoony, Cognac-suffused chocolate mousse. Think of it as a larger version of Campagne’s wonderful old bar—slightly higher on the sophistication chain than the bohemian Cafe Campagne downstairs, but not so your wallet will notice.
