Marlow Bistro Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant & décor: At Marlow Bistro in Morningside Heights, chef Zivko Radojcic cooks Mediterranean food – think mostly Italian, with Middle Eastern touches. It’s a solid neighborhood restaurant, with big wraparound windows and sidewalk seating for people watching, an abundance of potted plants, a mosaic floor and exposed brick walls. The long wooden bar is a great place to savor a barrel aged Negroni.

Likes: Pizza; ambience.
Dislikes: Waits can be long on weekends; service can be spotty.

Food & Drinks: Start with a globe of burrata served on baba ghanoush with roasted tomato and olives, or tuna crudo topped with crimson beet foam, mint and apple (or both). Then move on to any one of the crispy, blistered, and satisfying thin-crust pizzas, especially the Diavola with mozzarella, spicy salami and tomato, or the Funghi Misti with wild mushrooms and creamy Fontina truffle sauce. Long Island duck is savory and just a bit sweet, with rich chanterelles and huckleberry marmalade. Pastas are homemade; girasoli, a fresh filled pasta, is stuffed with prosciutto and dried figs and drizzled with a Gorgonzola sauce. A sprinkle of walnuts adds welcome crunch. For dessert, silky chocolate crémeux is rich but won’t weigh you down. The wine list focuses on Italy, but there are also selections from Mendoza, Napa Valley and the Rhône.
