Marlowe is a neighborhood bistro owned and operated by husband and wife team Anna Weinberg & James Nicholas, along with chef/partner Jennifer Puccio, since 2010.
Chef Puccio created a meat-centric menu of New American bistro favorites with unique and flavorful twists.
The interior, designed by Ken Fulk, riffs on the butcher shop theme with white hexagonal floor tile, quilted stainless steel walls, and drawings of animals marked for cuts.
Start with the oysters, half a dozen, as fresh as they look, fine quality oysters coming straight from the port next door. A squeeze of lemon and enjoy these memorable shells.
Intensely peppery and topped with a quail egg, the tartare at Marlowe is fresh and special. Loved the adventure it takes you on, the poached egg like a cherry on top, the meat texture and the pepper combined with strong spices.
Burrata, fresh burrata on a bed of sliced French baguette combined with pluots and a drizzle of honey. Ade surely salted and peppered, this enjoyable kick with the honey added gives this mix a special touch you’ll remember for long. Burrata, prosciutto and the fruit together with the bread and honey... an excellent marriage! The chef even added some sliced almonds for the crunch!
Came here for the burger people say; considered to be great but unfortunately turned out to be deceiving! The bread is so hard like if it was microwaved or baked yesterday. A fine meat, ground beef cooked medium, sauce and shredded lettuce. The ingredients used are good except the bread that spoiled the experience. Some of the side fries are crunchy while others are undercooked. A deceiving plate!
A bit too dark for me, too tight as well but nice vibes.
