It’s not every day that a top-rated restaurant in OC offers a two-course dinner for $29, but guess what? Marché Moderne at South Coast Plaza is doing just that through November. Chef-owners Amelia and Florent Marneau are celebrating fall with an Alsace-influenced menu, but if you don’t do pork, you’re out of luck. The dishes showcase “The Pig from Head to Toe,” six pork specialties with pressure-cooked choucroute, German butterball potatoes and a pungent Dijon mustard. Dessert will be Amelia Marneau’s apple tarte a l’Alsaciènne with vanilla-scented crème fraîche custard, and Chimay beer gelato. The menu will be available at dinner only.
