Sean Macpherson, the hotelier who runs The Bowery Hotel and its trendy people watching perch Gemma, recently unveiled his latest dining concept, Margaux, located at The Marlton Hotel. The historic Greenwich Village crash pad, used by Jack Kerouac to pen a few of his classics, will now look to attract a modern day clientele with dishes like black bass crudo and cauliflower custard making up the small plates section. Pastas made in house, a rib-eye for two, and wild striped bass are a few of main courses. Another modern twist? The wine list is comprised of multiple biodynamic, organic, and sustainable wines. The restored hotel, which opened back in September, also houses an espresso bar serving resurrected American java specialist Ferndell Coffee. In addition to dinner, the restaurant offers breakfast and lunch, with all reservations available by phone only at the current moment.
