Named after La Jolla’s popular Open Aire Farmer’s Market, Bistro du Marché works closely with farmers to incorporate the finest local flavors into every dish with rigorous French technique, making this a must-stop during San Diego Restaurant Week. Bistro du Marché is based on the culinary concept of “bistronomie”, a form of French cuisine that emphasizes the fusion of haute gastronomic expertise, seasonality, and the traditional “cuisine de terroir’ found in bistros across France. For $50 per person, you can treat yourself to a full-French dinner experience that will make you forget you’re still in San Diego! Owner and Chef Jean Michel Diot has taken his love of cooking in his mother’s kitchen and turned it into carefully crafted cuisine that promises decadence in every bite.
