Batard – Reviewed

Neighborhood: | Featured in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant, Reviews

It’s always sad when a restaurant doesn’t work out. Restaurateurs put a lot of money into building out a restaurant in hopes that people will come and return often.

Consider eating elsewhere. But if you’re looking for some heart-warming (or stopping) cooking to cozy up to this winter, The Marrow has quite a few terrific options.
