MARLOW’S TAVERN GETS SAUCY THIS FALL WITH RIBS & WHISKEY
Seasonal Specials Coming to the Menu September 15
ATLANTA (Sept. 14, 2015) – As the weather begins to cool down in Atlanta, Marlow's Tavern is heating up with its sixth annual Ribs & Whiskey menu of saucy food and drink specials. Starting Tuesday, September 15 through Monday, October 19, diners can go whole hog with barbecue, ribs, handcrafted cocktails and featured drinks.
"We look forward to bringing this celebration menu back each year because it signals the start of fall and the return of some truly delicious barbecue," says John C. Metz, executive chef and co-founder of Marlow's Tavern. "Personally, I'm a big fan of grilling during these cooler months; especially as I'm tailgating at Penn State or in the infield at NASCAR."
For fellow tailgaters and home grillers, Metz recommends starting with the very best steak, ribs and brisket. Then, preheat the grill until it is blistering hot; that's the only way to sear in the juices. As for seasoning, Metz says salt and pepper are your friends. "An ice-cold beer by your side always helps the grilling experience, too! But really, the best way to enjoy some delicious barbecue right now is to come into Marlow's and let our chefs do the work for you."
This year's Ribs & Whiskey celebration features four delicious sauces served tableside - Jack Daniel's glaze, hoisin barbecue, Marlow's chipotle barbecue and East Carolina barbecue. Each gives a sweet, spicy, smoky or tangy zip to the perfectly seasoned ribs. Guests will find an assortment of seasonal fare on the menu, including:
