After the Fatty ‘Cue event, I decided to stay in Brooklyn to get a bite to eat with my friend, Eunice. The only place I’ve been to in the area is Peter Luger, but we didn’t have a reservation so we decided to check out Marlow & Sons, which is right around the block from Fatty ‘Cue:


Marlow & Sons has another place, Marlow & Daughters, down the street that sells all kinds of specialty foods, meats, and produce. Marlow & Sons specializes in oysters, meat, and has a large selection of wines as well. We decided to share a prosciutto plate:


Eunice and I agreed that proscuitto is best served cold (when it’s served on pizza, it’s too salty, in my opinion). The raisin bread brought an interesting sweetness to the cured meat and we were both fans.

For our entrees, we shared the mussels in a tomato sauce:


The mussels were gigantic and very flavorful; they were cooked with tomatoes, onions, and herbs. The portion was quite large and there were some pieces of bread on the bottom of the bowl that had been marinating in the sauce.

We also ordered the brick chicken with sweet potatoes:


The chicken was really delicious and had a very crispy skin, but was a tad too salty. I think the brine they used must have been too salty (just a hunch). The chicken was very moist and delicious – I definitely want to try this method and will post about it after some experimenting.

The dinner was quite enjoyable and service was great. However, the seating at Marlow & Sons is seriously cramped; a server elbowed my head near the end of the meal while she was getting to another table! OUCH! I definitely want to go back and try their oysters, however, I thought they were a little pricey ($2.75 each – that’s more expensive than Fish AND Joseph Leonard!
