NEW YORK—Tucked away in the recently opened historic Marlton hotel, lies a new Greenwich Village restaurant—Margaux, opening for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Chefs Michael Reardon, formerly of Shutters on the Beach, Santa Monica, and Tra Vigne in Napa, and Jeremy Blutstein, of Tremont, Eataly, and The Crow’s Nest in Montauk, will helm the kitchen. Margaux will serve dishes influenced by the cultures and cuisines of the southern and eastern Mediterranean, France, and California. With an ethos of seasonality and healthy ingredients, the menu changes daily.
Located in the rear of the hotel behind the lobby bar, the cozy 98-seat cafe, designed by Sean MacPherson, is seeped with charm. Green banquet seating and fresh plants in porcelain potting surround the light-filled space, and the walls are adorned with antique glass mirrors, chic light fixtures, and floral tiles hand-picked by MacPherson in Argentina. A breathtaking skylight atrium spans the cafe’s back wall further enhancing the romantic sentiment.
