It's about time local restaurants did something with their windows other than exploit them for their light-allowing properties. SOMA's Marlowe (formerly South Food + Wine) posted these whimsically aggressive foodie quotes in their window, words that are not for the faint of heart or humor-free.

These words of wisdom stem from Marlowe's menu, which boasts classic steak tartare (with poached quail egg), roasted bone marrow, brown butter brussel sprouts, seared black cod, baked oysters, and so much more. All of the items here are a welcome reprieve from our current food-cart-obsessed-maple-bacon-donut-eating-within-a-certain-radius mindset. It is, thank God, a refreshing throwback to a 1980s-ish supperclub decadence.

Check out Marlowe's menus.
