We were in Colorado for a wedding and lucked out finding this restaurant. The food is fresh, reasonable and varied. We enjoyed delicious mussels, a great cheese plate and lovely wine. The chefs prepare the food right in front of you so it's fun to watch them in action! Check it out..

We stopped in there just to check out the place and ended up taking food (fajitas) to complete the preparation in our condo. He will prepare a family style meal for you to take to your condo or wherever. The food was good.

We were walking around Avon and came upon Food! By Marc. We noticed it was a cooking school and did catering. After talking with one of the chefs we noticed they were going to do a " pop up" restaurant with a four course meal for $30.00. We made reservations and showed up the next day. Marc is a very...

Marc prepared a dinner for 5, It was one of the best dinners I have ever had. It was delightful that Marc's running commentary talked about each dish from where the ingredients came from to how it was prepared and what wine would compliment it the best. The food is prepared right if front of you, it is a true... More

I had the "roots" salad which was basically a mixed green salad with some diced beets added. perhaps the hot dishes are better and... More

This group of skiers stumbled on Food! by Marc and broke tradition by returning to dine here 3 times during the same week. We come from a city with high dining standards (Charleston, SC) and were amazed by what Marc and his staff serves in an unassuming setting. The best part of the experience is to eat and drink at...

The food was delicious! Very nice presentation! We didn't have room in the restaurant, so they catered the dinner to us in our condos. The ribs and salads were particularly delicious!

Long-time local chef Marc Rouse's newest venture melds his love of food with his love of teaching others about food. The lovely decor (a modern aesthetic, warmed by reclaimed beetle-kill wood) offers guests the option to either sit at a table, or to sit along the long bar facing the kitchen. For those who are interested, sitting at the bar... More
