Marliave Restaurant Review

: Marliave, a former speakeasy that's endured wars, floods, recessions and many presidents, is a Downtown Crossing landmark. The cooking hadn't always been as amazing as its longevity; fortunately, chef Scott Herritt dedicated himself to making the restaurant relevant food-wise. Old-school cocktails call to mind the place’s history with libations like the Boston Tea Party. Time-honored standards such as beef Wellington and rarebits along with modern staples of a “fork and knife” Caesar salad and meatball sliders satisfy diners looking for tamer fare. The raw bar menu is popular with the pre-theater crowd. For mains, we recommend the Sunday gravy, a generous bowl of gnocchi, tomatoes, lamb, pork and beef. For dessert, go for the tapioca pudding. Dollar oysters and $1.50 shrimp cocktail are offered daily from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. and 9 p.m.-10 p.m.
