The wait for a new location of Marlowe, eternally popular since 2010, is nearly over: A Cow Hollow sister location to the SoMa original that’s dubbed Cow Marlowe (see what they did there?) will open on Thursday November 15.
Announced this spring, the new restaurant at 3145 Fillmore Street (in the former Eastside West space) will closely mirror its precursor. Executive chef Jennifer Puccio will replicate her famed burger (with cheddar, bacon, caramelized onions, horseradish aioli) but add some neighborhood-specific dishes, too. Then again, a burger might reasonably qualify as neighborhood specific in this case: The Cow Hollow area is named for its past life as grazing pastures for cattle.
Cow Marlowe joins a sizable family of restaurants from the Big Night Restaurant Group, operated by restaurateurs Anna Weinberg and James Nicholas. The whole crew: Leo’s Oyster Bar in the Financial District, Park Tavern in North Beach, the Cavalier and Marianne’s on 5th Street in SoMa, and Petit Marlowe near AT&T Park.
Like its siblings, Cow Marlowe is likely to be easy on the eyes. It’s designed by frequent Big Night collaborator Ken Fulk. Patterned wallpaper has been hung with care, some swanky tile flooring is in place with Marlowe’s signature logo — a steer — and a handsome marbled bar is ready to go.
Stay tuned for more as the big opening night approaches.
