ANDREW TARLOW, Author
In 1999, Andrew opened his first restaurant, Diner, which serves locally-sourced, New American food inside a refurbished 1927 dining car in the industrial neighborhood of South Williamsburg. Marlow & Sons, a restaurant, oyster bar, and general store, soon followed next door, functioning as a cafe by day and a raw bar and restaurant by night. Other culinary ventures include Marlow & Daughters, a butcher shop specializing in locally sourced grass-fed meat; and Roman's in Fort Greene, an Italian-inspired restaurant with a three course menu that changes daily. In 2012, Andrew and his partners opened the Wythe Hotel and its ground floor restaurant Reynard in a turn-of-the-century factory building in Williamsburg. He most recently opened Achilles Heel, a riverside watering hole featuring natural wine in Greenpoint. He is publisher of Diner Journal, an independent magazine featuring original art, literature, and recipes. Tarlow grew up in New York and began his career as a painter and a bartender at the Odeon. He now lives in Fort Greene with his wife, designer Kate Huling, and their four children.
