Less tropical, more refined
Well-loved for their breezy, tropical aesthetics and authentic French cuisine, Merci Marcel has made a name for itself. Almost everyone is familiar with the French multi-concept restaurant which is part cafe, part lifestyle retail boutique, and recently, part art gallery, and it comes as great news that they’ve just opened a 2nd outlet along Club Street that’s catered towards the CBD crowd!
While the alfresco dining area still has a relaxed, tropical atmosphere thanks to the rattan chairs, wooden tables, and plenty of potted plants, the restaurant’s interior is slightly more muted and chic as compared to the first branch.
It has a pretty interesting design as well, with 2 adjoining rooms connected to each other via an archway, giving the place a very homely feeling.
Check out the lush sofa seats!
They also have private booth seats for couples.
The lifestyle retail section is slightly smaller in this new outlet, but diners can still browse through items like sunglasses, mugs, chocolates, and gourmet jams.
In terms of food offerings, they’ve moved away from the all-day brunch concept and focuses more on what they call “noon to night dining”. Be greeted by new mains like Duck Parmentier Facon Marcel and Grilled Octopus, and a rotational cheese menu that has a selection of French farm cheeses air flown in daily.
Duck Parmentier Facon Marcel ($26) – duck confit, pomme Macaire, and duck jus
Whole Catalonia Octopus Leg ($46) – potato rouille, crispy kale, croutons, and chorizo oil
Of course, crowd-favourites like the Ravioles de Royans, a French speciality layered with Switzerland Tête de Moine cheese, Croque Marcel, Organic Snapper Ceviche, and Duck Rillettes remain as signatures on the menu!
Ravioles de Royans ($18) – French dumpling pasta filled with Tete de Moine cheese
Plus, wine connoisseurs will be pleased to know that they have a new wine-by-the-glass menu, so you can take your pick and sample away from an expansive wine list of over 100 French reds and whites!
