To say, “I love Marlowe San Francisco” would be an understatement.
After visiting its sister location, The Cavalier, I knew Marlowe would be next on my dining list. So, when I was invited to the San Francisco Design Center to see Amy Flurry present her “Pitch It Perfect” inside scoop at Kravet, I grabbed #KKDL Jill and the opportunity to lunch at the beautiful black and white bistro.
Marlowe is a neighborhood bistro owned and operated by husband and wife team Anna Weinberg & James Nicholas, along with chef and 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 one of our favorites, Ken Fulk, riffs on the butcher shop theme with white hexagonal floor tile, quilted stainless steel walls, and drawings of animals marked for cuts.
Our luncheon at Marlowe included bubbles, of course, burrata with peas, fried chicken sando (yummo!) and prawns. I literally could have ordered one of everything on the menu and have been happy. Now, I will just have to revisit the darling Brannan Street haunt.
Weinberg, Nicholas and Chef Puccio followed up Marlowe with the San Francisco classic Park Tavern in North Beach in September 2011, the British inspired brasserie The Cavalier in August 2013, and seafood-focused Leo’s Oyster Bar in January 2016.
If you visit Marlowe, or any of the other sister restaurants in the city, let us know. You never know, you may see the #KKDL team there! 🙂
