    Marche aux Fleurs: A User’s Guide French-American Cuisine | Farm to Table | Wild Seafood | Free-Range Meats | Artisanal Wines Sample Menu Appetizer: cheese board with cow’s-, goat’s-, and sheep’s-milk cheeses with honey, jam, and chutney Entree: Sonoma duck confit with ruby grapefruit, sunflower seeds, and dandelion greens Dessert: salted caramel pot de creme with shortbread cookie Wine: glass of Harrington pinot noir, 2012, Anderson Valley When to Go (If You’re Craving a Burger): Stop in Thursday nights when the chefs grill up half-pound patties of Fallon HIlls grass-fed beef. Focused Wine List: Just as Marche aux Fleurs supports small local farms by favoring seasonal ingredients, it also supports small family-run wineries, many from California regions. It means the wine list varies more, but the owners believe these artisanal producers put “more passion in the bottle.“ Inside Tips Pick up some house bacon to enjoy at home, made from Devil’s Gulch pork belly cured with brown sugar and maple syrup. Pick between the thick cut or billionaire style. Reservations recommended, which can be made online or over the phone.
