Last Wednesday night, I attended the opening of Marble Downtown. The hot new culinary destination in Manhattan features an eclectic menu, presented by Executive Chef, Vincent P. Michaels. Offering fine Italian dining, Marble boasts an elegant decor that exudes old-world charm, with rustic appeal. A grand chandelier, fine Italian marble bar top, and radiant pendant lighting fixtures add accents of dramatic opulence.
The meatpacking district, where Marble Downtown is located, is one of NYC’s most high-energy areas for exclusive hot spots and celebrity sightings. Marble was no exception. The stars were out, as were awe-struck guests and onlookers.
Seen in the VIP area were “Real Housewives of NY’s” Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley, Celebrity Interviewer – Chance Spiessbach, Miss New York, eclectic Congolese born rap artist -Young Paris, bestselling author–Suzanne Corso (Simon Schuster), luxury marketing consultant–Ivonne Camacho, pop music artist –Aaron Paul, and the evening was hosted by Academy award-winning actor Cuba Gooding Junior.
Suzanne Corso, who also has been part of Marble Downtown’s promotion efforts, personally invited Instinct Magazine to the opening. A longtime friend and close ally to the LGBTQ community, Suzanne explained, “It was really important for us to make sure the LGBTQ community knows we’re here, and that we are a fun, welcoming place of inclusion for everyone, not to mention, our fabulous Waldorf Bar with amazing signature cocktails and after work selections.”
Instinct Magazine was honored to be the primary LGBTQ press invited to Marble Downtown’s opening, and I personally look forward to returning and ordering from their amazing menu and crowd-pleasing fresh raw bar!
