The Marlton's Margaux is Now Open
Remember Cafe Marlton, which was due to open at The Marlton last fall? Well, it finally opened last week and it's now going by the fancier sounding name, Margaux.
Tucked into the rear of the hotel, occupying a light-filled space behind the lobby bar, the 98-seat Parisian-inspired cafe will be keeping long hours, opening from 7 a.m - midnight, and serving a daily changing menu of Californian, French and Mediterranean-inspired dishes. The kitchen is overseen by chefs Michael Reardon (formerly of Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica, and Tra Vigne in Napa) and Jeremy Blutstein of Tremont, Eataly, and The Crow’s Nest in Montauk and dinner selections include the Farmer's Board of red-quinoa tabouli, beets and avocado hummus ($19) and the Dayboat Cod with sea bean ($24).
Pastas and desserts are made in-house, and the wine list highlights organic, biodynamic and sustainable selections. Naturally, because he once stayed there, Jack Kerouac leaves his mark on the cocktail list: for $14 you can sip a Dharma Bum, made with tea-infused pisco, lemon and rosemary.
Now he's got The Marlton up and running, we hope to hear imminent news of Sean MacPherson's next project opening: the long-delayed Ludlow.
