Sunday suppers, from the book-spawning classic at Lucques to the long-running event at Dominick’s, and on to Mark Gold’s celebrated throw-downs at new Eva, are an informal staple around here. It makes perfect sense that Gary Menes, praised for his ability to improvise and day-to-day market inspiration, would step to the challenge himself. Starting this weekend, Menes is bringing “Sunday Suppers” to his Marche in Sherman Oaks. Dinner is only $30 to find the former Palate chef creating in his own kitchen, offering planned menus of four courses that are “subject to change with mother nature.” Along with dinner, acoustic classical guitar will fill the room and quartinos of wine are five dollars. Marche’s first Sunday Supper dinner menu is below and reservations are made at 818-784-2915.
