Now open from Anna Weinberg and James Nicholas of the Big Night Restaurant Group (Marlowe, Petit Marlowe, Leo’s Oyster Bar, Park Tavern, The Cavalier, and Marianne’s) is COW MARLOWE in Cow Hollow, in the former Eastside West.
Chef-partner Jennifer Puccio and chief pastry officer Emily Luchetti have put together an expanded menu, with new dishes like grilled furikake green beans with smoked egg yolk, caviar, and truffle aioli, and exclusively for the late-night menu is Cow Marlowe poutine, featuring Kennebec fries with braised beef short ribs, cracklings, Caesar aioli, and Parmesan cheese. There’s an entire section dedicated to bar bites, including the trademark crispy Brussels sprout chips and their warm deviled egg, made with aged provolone, pickled jalapeño, and bacon.
Chef de cuisine Steve Dustin also has an entrée of warm Brussels sprout and chicory Caesar with Spanish anchovies, and seafood-stuffed petrale sole with diver scallops and bay shrimp, celery root, spinach, smoked paprika, and sunchoke chips, and the favorite poulet vert. For dessert, Luchetti offers some playful spins on American classics like the orange creamsicle sundae with bourbon and caramel-soaked oranges, vanilla bean ice cream, orange sorbet, and candied almonds, and Key lime cheesecake with wild blueberry sauce.
The bar program features a new menu from Mike Anders of Marianne’s and Leo’s Oyster Bar, and expands on the classics from the original Marlowe. There are some fun new additions exclusive to the location, like the Lululemon Drop (hahahahahhaha) with Tito’s Vodka, Acqua di Cedro, lemon, and thyme, and Brad & Chad (also, hahahhahhaha), made with Avion Reposado Tequila, gin, and green Chartreuse.
Seems like a good idea to go have Jennifer Puccio’s burger and soak in the always-fun style from Ken Fulk. Ken Fulk Inc.’s senior designer, Tiffany Kramer, installed a bar and communal table made of Sodalite blue granite in cobalt blue that looks a bit like a beautiful lapis. There are leather banquettes, vintage Thonet-style chairs, Carrara marble tiles, and of course some snazzy wallpaper.
Lunch and brunch begin Saturday December 1st, as well as Sunday dinner service and an all-day menu. For now, hours are Mon-Wed 5:30pm-10pm and Thu-Sat 5:30pm-11pm. The late-night menu is served 11pm-1am, and the bar is open Mon-Wed 4pm-12am, and Thu-Sat 4pm-1:45am. 3154 Fillmore St. at Greenwich, 415-508-5898.
