The Big Night Restaurant Group (Marlowe, Leo’s Oyster Bar, Park Tavern, The Cavalier) can’t stop, won’t stop. Up next is PETIT MARLOWE, which they are opening in Mark Bright’s Les Clos space. The concept is to open a neighborhood wine bar and “oysterette.” Good news: they will be keeping Bright on as wine adviser, so fans of his sick cellar stocked with Burgundy, well, you aren’t getting cut off. Chef Jennifer Puccio will be rolling out quite the raw bar, plus steak tartare, charcuterie, cheeses, salads, egg dishes, and more, while pastry chef Emily Luchetti will be doing her dessert magic.
The 50-seat space is getting an old-world glam revamp under Ken Fulk, with flea market finds from Paris, plus maroon banquette seating, a Carrara marble bar, brass cocktail tables, crystal chandeliers, and mirrored ceiling panels (ooh la la). Look for an opening in March. Hours will be Mon-Wed 4pm-10pm, Thu-Sat 4pm-11pm. 234 Townsend St. at 4th St.
