Battle of the baguettes: with Marché back at Brookfield Place, will its rivalry with Richtree be rekindled?

Marché, the open-air counter-service restaurant that looks like Epcot’s interpretation of a French market, is finally opening at Brookfield Place Friday, much to the relief of nearby office workers and hungry tourists who got lost in the Path trying to find the Hockey Hall of Fame. It’s been six years since Marché packed up its wicker baskets and left Canada after a long and bitter legal dispute with Richtree’s former owner, Jorg Reichert. Now, with him gone, it seems like Marché is making a fresh start at Richtree’s flagship spot. The question now is, Will the Richtree-versus-Marché rivalry continue, even with so much water under the bridge?

We’re reserving judgment on which market is better. So far, the Richtree at the Eaton Centre gets the upper hand for discounting its food half an hour before closing. Frankly, that’s not a hell of a lot.

Marché, your move.
