Marlow & Sons
Brooklyn, NY 11211
Village Voice's Description
The concept from Andrew Tarlow and Mark Firth (of Bonita and Diner, next door): European grocery store/bar where one stops in for a boiled egg and a bottle of wine to bring home. Marlow & Sons is casual and neighborhoody, but more of a destination than that, with a small, slightly too cute grocery in front (organic produce, imported dry goods, the paper, bar and tables in back. It's extremely dark, but luckily there's not much of a menu to read. They offer two oysters every day-representing East and West coasts, a small selection of cured meats, cheeses, vegetables, and fish, and a short wine list.
Tips from foursquare
From the owners of Diner, this Williamsburg raw bar offers a limited but delicious menu.
The restaurant's signature dish is the result of what happens when you sandwich half a chicken between a roaring hot skillet and a 35-pound brick. One of our 5 favorite roast chickens in the city!
The bone marrow solves all... a gateway protein kinda like bacon. So great the whole world stands on its head. - Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations
The menu changes daily, but be sure to start every meal with oysters and some sparkling wine. Order one of everything and stuff your face.
The short list of complex cocktails are smarty crafted to stimulate the palate. - Inspector
