Where are the Marche outlets now? We used to enjoy going there but think they have relocated a few times that I've lost track where they are located now.

VivoCity and 313 Somerset. I am not sure whether there are other locations.

I usually go to the one at Vivo. The other branch is at 313? Think there's also a small outlet at JEM.

Jack's place is our default family dinner venue.

Anyway, just for sharing, I found what I am looking for from this website:

Going to The Ship Restaurant! :smile:

We used to have many of these type of family restaurant like Country mania, ponderosa, Sizzler, etc. Sadly, they have all closed down one after another.

Marche at Jem and raffles city, I feel is of different concept. I've seen people being served at both, not like vivocity.
