Quick: How much champagne and oysters are too much?

If you answered, “Trick question,” congratulations. We have just the place for you.

Petit Marlowe is the newest addition to the Cavalier, Park Tavern and Marlowe family, and it’s now open just around the corner from its larger namesake in SoMa. Here, have a look around.

You and your raw bar-loving date will wander into this oysterette and take your seat at one of the pink, Italian-leather banquettes under some toile wallpaper hand-stitched with ducks. You always did love a good hand-stitched duck.

But on to the main reasons you’re here, which are their daily offerings of oysters, crustaceans and bivalves, plus café options like a scallop or beef tartare and small sandwiches like the FG&J, which is foie gras torchon and apricot-chili jam on a baguette. Yeah. Those reasons.

You’ll want to pair all that with wine from their curated list or something sparkling like the Big Night Bubbles, a Brut Rosé made for the restaurant group by Vitteaut-Alberti in Burgundy. Finally, you’ll cap things off with some homemade bonbons or rosé ice cream that was made by Smitten.

Good things come in petit packages.


MONDAY BONUS: The Most Trumpian bed sheets ever.

Joe Starkey is the tallest person in the room 90% of the time. He enjoys liquors that aren’t smoky, dive bars that are, and has a vague dread that someone, somewhere might be having more fun than him.
