How to make it in NYC
Every week we’re checking in with the hustlers from HBO comedy “How to Make It in America” for recommendations on top spots in NYC to see and be seen.

Marlow & Sons
The scene: All style, all substance
What goes down: It makes the concept of a family-owned business relevant and cool.
Why it’s a place to help you “Make It”: Marlow delivers a consistently simple but inventive local menu with an old-timey general store in the front to boot. You can quench your foodie appetite and buy your kid (or in my case, your godkid) sustainable back-to-school supplies while you wait.
