The name Marble Lane sounds straight from a nursery rhyme. Remember the Muffin Man, you know, the one that lives on Mulberry Lane? While certainly fantastical and similarly lined by trees, the Manhattan eatery Marble Lane is worlds away from where the muffin man resides.
Sunk into the lobby of the Dream Downtown, this Meat Packing steak house is illuminated by large spherical bubbles suspended from the ceiling, creating an fun and upbeat ambience inot unlike that of a Las Vegas casino where you can easily lose track of time. You may be dining at 11:30 pm on a Tuesday night, but at a spot Marble Lane who’s to say that’s even late? Open for about a year now, the place is still a scene, attracting a good looking, young crowd, undoubtedly on their way to the nearby clubs.
Unlike most restaurants in the area, the portions here are rather sizable—thanksfully, since the prices are, too. . The good news is that you can get a healthy meal at Marble Lane. at. Sure, there are decadent dishes on the menu, but you’ll find a good selection of F-Factor approved options, too. I recommend starting with the big and succulent Beefsteak Tomato salad and the sharing an entrée, like the Tuna Tartare - my favorite. Marble Lane’s version is super-fresh with peppery kick. Another great choice is roasted chicken – just ask for it to be prepared without butter. It’s best to ignore all of the potato-based side dishes on the menu, though. Instead, order your choice of teamed and grilled veggies indulge guilt-free.
