Amid much hype, Marta restaurant is now open at 29 East 29th Street in the Martha Washington hotel (between Park Avenue South and Madison).
It’s a Danny Meyer/Terry Coughlin project with Chef/Partner Nick Anderer (Gramercy Tavern, Babbo) running the show and serving up “Roman traditions of thin, crackly-crusted pizzas and seasonal specials cooked “alle brace”—over open embers.” Chef de Cuisine is Joe Tarasco (Maialino, Gramercy Tavern, Le Bec-Fin, Frankies Spuntino).
We have not had a chance to eat at Marta yet but will report back once we do.
Until then, here is the pizza menu:
Beyond Pizzes, they also Fritti, fried dishes including Zucchini, Eggplant, Pasta “Meatballs”, calamari, as well as salads and full entrees (Beer-Brined Half Chicken, Beef Short Rib with Anchovy Bernaise, Arctic Char with Fennel Fronds and Olive-Tomato Salad, Trout with Prosciutto, Sage, Charred Lemon, and more).
