Marlowe has successfully reopened one block away, as planned, just about two weeks after closing in its former digs on Townsend Street. Following a handsome remodel by designer Ken Fulk, the place is unrecognizable from its Coco500 days, and now includes a previously non-existent, fenced-in back patio complete with string lights and a vertical succulent garden.

The design is in keeping with Marlowe's original "butcher shop" inspiration, including lots of white tile, and of course, a touch of Ken Fulk taxidermy.

The menu has been expanded a bit, now that chef Jennifer Puccio has a bigger kitchen to work with, and includes some highlights like radish toasts with house-churned butter; scallop tartare; a grilled Niman Ranch pork chop with harissa and mint; and

In major dessert news, the famed Emily Luchetti has come on board as pastry chef for the whole Anna Weinberg restaurant group including Marlowe, Park Tavern, and The Cavalier. On the new Marlowe menu she's got a farmer's market sundae that looks pretty amazing, and some TO DIE FOR chocolate dipped, peanut-butter-filled pretzel nuggets.

Also new: cocktails. Marlowe now has a full bar.

See our photos, and the lunch, dinner, and cocktail menus are below. Note that they're open for dinner only this week, with lunch beginning on Monday, October 6.
