Serving Fine French Cuisine In The Tradition Of The Original Henry Marliave

Henry Marliave, a French immigrant from Paris, arrived in Boston with a collection of recipes and the dream of finding success in the United States. He achieved his American dream by opening his namesake restaurant, Marliave, at 10 Bosworth Street in 1885. In 2008, the Boston dining landmark was reopened by Grotto chef/owner, Scott Herrit.

Specializing in pre-ordered as well as sit-down lunches, Marliave makes all meals from scratch using only fresh ingredients--and treats those ingredients with care. Its house-prepared pastas, soups, salads, and sauces are stored cold and not preheated.  

Marliave serves good food . . . not fast food.  When you come to Marliave, sit down and relax, allow the team to prepare your food to order, and take in some fresh air before you head back to the rest of your day.  Meals can be taken at one of Marliave's plush leather booths, at a table upstairs in the window-enclosed dining room, or at a seat at the restaurant's 22-foot marble bar.
