The lowdown

Café by day, raw bar and restaurant by night, this quirky Williamsburg canteen is from Andrew Tarlow, who also happens to own Diner, the American bistro next door. Even though Marlow is ideally situated to absorb Diner’s overflow and ply them with retro cocktails and briny oysters, the dimly lit, wood-paneled space has been forged a cozy Mediterranean-accented identity of its own. Locals congregate at communal tables over good olives, delicate tortilla española, and daily specials like the wild-leek-and-goat-cheese tart. If you come across an ingredient you really love, Marlow and Daughters, a quasi-organic gourmet general store, is down the street.
