French dining overlooking a lake? Yes. It exists in Las Vegas.
While the bulk of the menu at Marche Bacchus is heavy on the meat (hey, it is a French bistro), there’s a little secret we’re here to share: they’ve got a vegetarian/vegan menu, too.
Granted, it’s a tiny little menu, but they’ve still got one.
Las Vegas Vegan-Friendly Restaurant: Marche Bacchus
Prices for the veg/vegan options start at $9 and go up to $14 for a ragout that is a bit salty for our taste, but a nice serving of veggies.
It’s not the most creative menu, but for a night out in The Lakes, it’s got something for vegans as well as non-vegans. The spot gets bonus points for being a wine shop, as well as having a large selection of bottles to sip on while enjoying a Vegas evening lakeside.
Vegan Starters at Marche Bacchus
You can start your meal with a few different vegan options — all of them salads.
Choose from the house salad with mixed greens, fennel and tomatoes in an orange poppyseed vinaigrette; the warm spinach salad with apples, spiced croutons and candied walnuts; or the organic watercress salad with endive, poached pears and candied walnuts in a champagne vinaigrette.
There’s also the Heirloom tomato salad that can be made vegan by holding the cheese,
Vegan Entrees at Marche Bacchus
There are two vegan entrees you can order at Marche Bacchus. One is the vegge ragout with crispy Yukon potatoes, artichokes and wild mushrooms (it’s on the salty side, so ask them to tone it down if you order it). The other option is a roasted vegetable crostini with currants and pine nuts.
Take note — the lunch menu features vegan salads, but the main courses all need to be modified to be vegan … which can be done. And, sadly, there’s nothing on the brunch menu that’s vegan.
