If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time you’ve probably seen one of my posts about Marlow’s Tavern. I love their food, their menu selections, and their restaurants. One of my favorite things about Marlow’s Tavern is that they change up their menu 3 times a year. They change with the seasons and add new menu items to freshen things up. I was lucky enough to get to try out some of these new menu items last month and they are great!
One new item on the menu is a unique toast selection with rosemary ciabatta serving as the base for a delicious variety of toppings such as artichoke and arugula, roast tomato, and fig and bacon. They have three options and they are all super tasty! These would be a great way to start off your meal or pair one with a salad and call it a day. Regardless, these are definitely a new menu item that you should check out.
In addition, dishes such as Seared Diver Scallops, with carrot purée, roasted parsnip, bacon and sweet pea hash with roasted tomato fondue and parslied olive oil; Grilled Chicken Stack, with Prestige Farms chicken with roasted mushrooms, fingerling potatoes, blistered grape tomatoes and green beans in a creamy roasted chicken glace with fine herbs and parslied olive oil; Beef Carpaccio, thinly sliced filet mignon, housemade Dijonnaise, Parmesan, fine herbs and crispy capers; and Jumbo Lump Crab Cake, with blue crab, red cabbage and jicama slaw with horseradish aioli, show how dedicated the Marlow’s team is about quality ingredients in tune with the season.
I was able to try the Grilled Chicken Stack and the Seared Diver Scallops, which were both amazing, but the scallops were definitely my favorite. Who knew that carrot puree would be so delicious?
To complement these new offerings, Marlow’s Tavern has developed several inventive additions to the cocktail menu.
· Professor Plum – Cathead pecan vodka, Roland plum shrub, simple syrup and a splash of Regan’s orange bitters
· The Vesper Classique – American Harvest vodka, St. George Botanivore gin, Cocchi Americano and Fee Brothers peach bitters
· Aspen Line – Ford’s gin, Pierre Ferrand dry curaçao, egg white, fresh lemon and nutmeg
· Aperol Spritz (Brunch Only) – Michelle brut, Aperol and a splash of soda
If you are looking for a fun gift for a friend, Marlow’s is currently running a great gift card promotion. If you purchase a $50 gift card you get a free bottle of Michelle Brut! Or, if you purchase a $100 gift card you get the Michelle Brut AND a $20 gift card. This is a great gift idea, but it is always a great thing to get yourself. If you are a fan of Marlow’s already, why not get yourself a gift card to use later and a bottle of bubbly to enjoy now? Sounds like the perfect plan to me!
*Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary menu tasting as a member of the media. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. I don’t get anything in return if you decide to get yourself (or a friend) a gift card.
