Margaux is a New York City mainstay. Located in the Marlton Hotel in Greenwich Village, which has occupied a leafy section of Eighth Street for more than 100 years, the restaurant serves a blend of French and Mediterranean cuisine, with an impressive selection of wines. But you won’t just find hotel guests at this restaurant—expect to find hip New Yorkers who come here for a bistro meal in the sun room or the bistro-style main dining room.
Margaux is open for every meal of the day: breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The menu changes throughout the year, but expect hearty fare for dinner such as rotisserie Amish chicken with sweet potato and lemon ($23) and grass-fed bavette steak with roasted shallots ($32). Country bread, lamb meatballs and East Coast oysters are typically found on the starter menu. There’s also an assortment of house-made pasta, including spaghetti, English pea risotto and fettuccine. Don’t forget to try Margaux for breakfast, when it’s bound to be less crowded. Order the avocado toast platter or the assortment of fresh pastries to start you day off on the right note.
Just like its surrounding hotel, Margaux’s decor leans toward the traditional, with antique mirrors and vintage lights. Colorful sofas rest on the far wall, perfect for larger groups celebrating. Margaux’s an award winner, too. It was named a gold standard restaurant by Conde Nast Traveler in 2015.
Guests can reserve a table at this eatery online. The restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to midnight every day of the year.
