Eating Out Paleo: Marlowe (San Francisco, CA)

Pin It

As I’ve written before, I love, love, love Marlowe. We come here with our little posse every few months and we’re always served delicious chow by friendly waitstaff in an unpretentious setting. How can you not love a place that has these two quotes (among many awesome foodie bons mots) printed on their front window:

Today, I took the train up with the boys to meet Fitbomb here for dinner. It’s so damn convenient since it’s located right behind the Caltrain station.

For our dinner, we opted to split a mess of starters and also ordered a burger for Big-O. It’s always funner to sample a large variety of dishes, don’t you think?

We began our meal with a couple warmed deviled eggs with aged provolone, pickled jalapeno, and bacon…

…and then the yumminess continued with a bowl of crispy Brussels sprout chips with lemon and sea salt…

…which Lil-O devoured like he had a bad case of the munchies…

…Little Gem salad with avocado, market vegetables, and citrus vinaigrette…

…spiced jumbo gulf shrimp with hot & boozy cocktail sauce…

…Dungeness Crab & Rock shrimp Louie…

..that we made into mini lettuce wraps topped with Tabasco and sea salt…

…roasted bone marrow with salsa verde and fine herbs…

…and steak tartare with poached quail egg.

Big-O gobbled up the famous Marlowe burger

…and we were all happy campers.

The eats were phenomenal as usual but I especially enjoyed the warm deviled eggs (we ordered a second round of them!) and Dungeness crab and rock shrimp louie.

I’m definitely mad about Marlowe.

Today, I retweeted this spot-on quote from Ruth Bordain, “I can’t get behind Meatless Mondays, but I am a very strong supporter of Tempehless Tuesdays.”

Methinks he/she is a fellow caveperson. Or at the very least, a vegan ridiculer.

Before heading to the women’s class at CrossFit Palo Alto, I filled my belly with a leftover piece of Damn Fine chicken and crudites dipped in basil and eggplant pesto.

The WOD was fun and challenging PLUS it was the first time I was able to do all 100 double-unders, albeit in fits and starts. I didn’t even realize the whipping I gave myself until Fitbomb pointed out my battle scars.

If someone asks sbout the welts, I’ll nonchalantly tell them that I was caught tagging a government building in Singapore.

After the class, I refueled with half a nuked sweet potato and a few slices of deli roast chicken.

For lunch, I made a frittata with zucchini, leftover emergency protein, frozen broccoli, and cherry tomatoes.

I ate a slice with 1/4 of an avocado topped with Aleppo chile pepper finishing salt.

As an afternoon snack, I chowed on some coconut butter and a packet of Grass Fed Jerky Chews.

Then, my boys and I hopped on a train bound for San Francisco and met my hubby at Marlowe for dinner.

I can’t believe my week off is over and I’ll be starting work tomorrow night…
