Harlow Restaurant Review

: Harlow’s setting evokes the glamorous heyday of Hollywood's Golden Age of dance musicals, when Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire used to take to the dance floor. Elements of classic English and Art Deco design are evident in elegantly carved ceiling moldings, the contrasting hues of creams and greys, marble and pink-shade chandeliers. Stained glass windows and modern art, including an Andy Warhol piece, stand in the adjacent parlor. On the menu are appetizers like crispy baby octopus pesto, edamame and oyster mushrooms, and a classic moules frites with lardons, white wine broth and french fries. Entrées feature creative plates of branzino with crispy hearts of palm and more traditional Colorado lamb chops with potato pavé, radish and mint salsa, crispy shallots and a maple soy reduction. Desserts are comparably whimsical with selections such as a piña colada crème brûlée with coconut rum crème, piña colada sorbet and pineapple sauce yielding tropical fruit flavors, while the bananas Zapin with caramelized bananas, semi-sweet chocolate, caramelized chocolate-covered peanuts and peanut butter gelato puts a unique spin on bananas Foster.
