Me: “What did you like most about visiting Marché?” My son: “Spending time together as a family.” I recently had the best experience dining out as a family.  So much so that I want to make it a ritual to go to Marché every Saturday to create our hygge(hoo-ga) as a family or at least, every other Saturday as they have the cutest…
