Williamsburg

Before there was a destination restaurant on every Williamsburg corner, there was Marlow and Sons—a pioneer in the kind of rustic aesthetic and farm-to-table fare that’s become the knee-jerk norm in Kings County. The restaurant, opened in 2004, wears its relative age well, functioning as an alluring neighborhood coffee shop during the afternoon and a subtly ambitious eatery come nightfall. In the back room, an oyster shucker cracks open the catch of the day, while a bartender churns out potent drinks. Settle in and order a round of iced bivalves and something to share—brick-flattened chicken, say, or a pot of liver pate—from the aggressively seasonal (and frequently changing) menu.

This place is sort of a duo shop / restaurant. The front area of Marlow & Sons has a bunch of different products that you can shop and take to-go. Coffee's of course and jams/spreads/other grocery items. The back has more restaurant space and a cool bar. It's very rustic and feels like you're in a cabin in Vermont. Oysters are amazing here!!! Brunch cocktails - like bloody mary's are also really great! Farm to table style food. Fantastic place to stop for an oyster appetizer before heading to brunch at Diner next door! Highly recommend stopping in here!
