Tampa, Florida (September 15, 2015) – Marlow’s Tavern is opening a new restaurant & gathering place in the heart of Carrollwood on Tuesday, Sept. 29. The classic American tavern has a modern atmosphere, fresh high-quality food and hand crafted cocktails, and warm hospitality.
The chef-driven menu of classic dishes with a unique twist will change seasonally depending on availability of the fresh ingredients that the season has to offer will be made from scratch daily. The beverage menu includes wines selected from around the world, offering an opportunity to taste and sample great pairings by the glass or bottle. The handcrafted cocktails are created with fresh juices, small-batch liquors, biters and aperitifs blending unique flavors and combinations to experience, and its very inclusive beer selection includes bottles, cans and drafts from around the world and features local breweries like Cigar City Brewing, which are great for enjoying with friends.
“At Marlow’s Tavern, we take great pride in creating fun food and drinks inspired by classic tavern items and elevating them with the freshest ingredients and adding a modern twist. Our menus are inspired by the season and we focus on local, fresh and unique ingredients for every dish and drink, as we keep our food and cocktails recognizable and approachable to enjoy with your friends and family,” said John C. Metz, Jr., executive chef and co-founder of Marlow’s Tavern.
Marlow’s Tavern has a great mix of comfortable seating consisting of large communal tables, covered patio tables and cozy booths. Rich accents of exposed brick, dark woods, red accent colors and eclectic black and white neighborhood photos will invite guests to linger and enjoy the company of their family, friends, colleges and neighbors. The extensively trained staff will provide friendly welcoming service, which always enhances the warm atmosphere.
“Many of the Marlow’s Tavern team live in Carrollwood or were raised in the neighborhood. We’re looking forward to creating memorable experiences, meeting and making new friends and neighbors, hosting lunch meetings, dinners with their family, casual gatherings, happy hours and nights out with friends,” said Alan Palmieri, co-owner and partner of Marlow’s Tavern.
