The safety of our crew and guests is our top priority. In keeping with best practices and as a result of surging Covid-19 cases, we are taking another step to protect our team and our community. Beginning on Monday, January 10, Marché & Le Bar will require proof of vaccination (or negative PCR tests dated within 48 hours) for all guests. Our staff is 100% vaccinated, and we believe deeply that the joys of a restaurant experience are only worth it when it can happen safely.
During the pandemic, we upgraded our HVAC filtration to the highest-grade Merv-13 filters, which have proven to be effective in reducing airborne virus. Our staff continues to follow strict mask guidelines, and we require our crew to all be fully vaccinated.
I have an upcoming reservation or would like to drop in– what does this new guideline mean?
It means that everyone in your party must show proof of vaccination or negative test results when you’re seated – in the form of a dated vaccination card showing a full 2-dose series of the mRNA vaccines (Moderna or Pfizer) or a single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, administered at least two weeks prior to your reservation. Alternately, documentation showing proof of a negative PCR test by a licensed test facility within 48 hours of your meal will be accepted. Both options must be accompanied by photo ID. Minors do not need ID. Self-reported vaccination records which are not verified by a health care provider cannot be accepted.
Do I need the originals, or may I provide a photo of my card, ID or test results?
Photos of official vaccination records, ID and test results are acceptable as long as they show the proper dates, names and relevant information.
Will at-home tests be accepted?
No. Negative test results must have been issued by a licensed healthcare provider, and must clearly show the name of the person tested and the date.
Does this mean that we don’t need to wear masks?
Sadly, no. Masks must still be worn at all times except when seated and actively eating and drinking. If you get up from your table for any reason, a mask must be covering your nose and mouth as you move about the restaurant.
If we aren’t able to show proof of vaccination, can we eat outdoors?
Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee outdoor seating will be available. There are number of factors that influence our ability to seat outdoors–from weather to staff levels, kitchen capacity and safety, it’s difficult to make it work in the winter.
