Marvin - Wine & Spirits Magazine


Marvin is a wine-themed Mediterranean restaurant decked out in shabby chic, its ceiling lined with tin cans, its walls covered in colorful plates. The French-inflected menu is unfussy and authentic; it’s a place where you can dine on tasty standards like octopus salad, roast lamb neck or truffled fettucini. Emilie Campbell oversees an almost all-European wine list, deep in Burgundy and, randomly, in Sicily. And it’s open late, so wine pros gravitate here post-shift. “There are always a handful of selections that border on the unobtainable anywhere else in the city,” says John Stanley at Stanley’s Wet Goods.

Patrick J. Comiskey covers US wines for Wine & Spirits magazine, focusing on the Pacific Northwest, California’s Central Coast and New York’s Finger Lakes.
