Village Voice's Description
The Marrow is Harold Dieterleâs third Greenwich Village restaurant, joining his previous efforts Perilla and Kin Shop. You remember him â he was the champ of Top Chefâs first season. While the first two dabbled in Asian fusion, and nouvelle Thai, respectively, this restaurant explores the chefâs German (his father) and Italian (his mother) heritage. Oddly, a single column of dishes is assigned to each parent, and Dieterle obviously enjoys riffing on the culinary influences each represents. Among the most successful items, thereâs a wonderful long marrow bone topped with orange sea urchin and baby celery sprouts, a dense beef roulade stuffed with cheese and deposited in thick tomato sauce, and a superb duck schnitzel so fresh and perfectly fried it might still be quacking. Pastry chef Ginger Fisher does her part to make a meal at the Marrow memorable, and her ginger stout cake is not to be missed. --Robert Sietsema
Tips from foursquare
Get the duck schnitzel. The spaetzel is just OK. But the duck is great
Top Chef-winner Harold Dieterle's restaurant for Italian and German cuisine from his family heritages. Don't leave without ordering the bone marrow with sea urchin.
Obsessed with the bone marrow!
Bank Robber, a take on the Boulevardier: a Negroni-style drink with Punt e Mes and Campari, with Bulleit bourbon rather than gin.
This new restaurant, interestingly, combines cuisines of Germany and Italy. We usually lean more towards the German half of the menu (literally) and order the Pan Fried Duck Schnitzel - it's awesome!
