Go for the Steak, Stay for the Cheesecake: Modern Steakhouse Marble & Moxie Hits the Right Notes
The Westminster Hotel has undergone a transformation in dining. With its muted colors and comfortable ambiance, the new Marble & Moxie appeals to a wide range of palates by offering an updated take on traditional favorites. Before dining you may want to enjoy one of their signature cocktails in the bar & lounge area.
Once your appetite is piqued, for starters, choose the Honey Glazed Pork Belly. This standout dish features perfectly charred—not fatty—pork belly, served over a Belgian waffle with melted Fontana cheese. Apple cider syrup completes this delightful appetizer. Alternatively, the signature Jumbo Lump Crab Cake is all crab and no filler, another wonderful way to begin the meal. And as for the Clams Casino, I believe they are the best around.
Being a steakhouse, ordering the Tomahawk Ribeye Steak, a 46-ounce bone-in chop for two, is a must. If you like onions, order it with the caramelized onions bathed in “beef butter”…outstanding! Served on a sizzling hot plate, this flavorful USDA Certified Prime Grade beef makes the cut. And if dining companions differ on doneness, the chef will cut the meat off the bone and serve each half cooked to perfection.
No worries for non-beef eaters, other options include a sous vide chicken, fresh fish selections and creative salads.
To compliment the entrée, Truffle Cream Spinach and Sweet Potato Casserole, served in individual cast iron skillets, are delicious. The flavorful spinach is not swimming in cream, while the sweet potatoes are light and fluffy yet not overly sweet.
When it comes time for dessert, the Cheesecake is not to be missed. Made on the premises, it surpasses the omnipresent New York brands in taste and presentation.
Marble & Moxie pays special attention to all fine dining details, from the cloth breadbasket to the barware. An impressive wine list elevates each course. For special occasions there is a private dining room for parties of 6 to 16.
