Four Bites
Bar du Marche.
The night I met up with visiting friends to go to El Baqueano we started off at Bar du Marche, Nicaragua 5946, just around the corner from their hotel, the Fierro. Great selection of wines by the glass – it’s so nice to finally have a real wine bar here. Fifty some selections by the glass! And not only did I get my glass of bubbly that I ordered, but when I did my Foursquare check-in I got a “first-timer” prize of a small glass of red to try. We did end up having a tabla of meats and cheeses – nice selection that we let them pick for us. Overall the pricing seemed reasonable for the neighborhood, other than, perhaps, their 75gm (2.6 oz) plate of foie gras served with brioche for which they charge more than I charge for a five course dinner with cocktail, paired wines, bottled water, and coffee/tea! I know the stuff is expensive, but it’s not that expensive, I’ve bought it here from my restaurant supplier. That’s not a complaint, I just wouldn’t order the foie gras. I’ll be back for wine and cheese.
