Even though it's now called Richtree I still call it Marches. Marches is definitely one of my all-time favorite restaurants. There is every type of food for every type of palate- salad bar, sushi bar, sandwich/deli stations, "asian/italian/french/etc sections, juice/smoothie bar, wine racks, dessert stations, etc etc etc etc etc. I'm not kidding! Everyone's cooked in front of you. So you can go with a group of the most pickiest eaters and I swear everyone will leave happy. Oh it's kind of like the Grove Farmer's Marketplace except the interior looks more like Whole Foods, the seating isn't ghetto, and it's completely indoors.

They have an excellent seafood section which is great for me because I am a huge fan of raw oysters! My cousin's MoH and I convinced Nancy to try it but I guess she wasn't really a fan. Yay more for us!

Why can't they open up a Marches in LA?? There was one in Boston that opened in 1998 but it closed in 2004 because it was losing money. They should definitely give it another try in So Cal!
