New York: Marta - Restaurant/Pizzeria

New York:  Marta Pizzeria. Marta’s, is in the Martha Washington hotel in the “unfortunate” location just north of Madison Square Park, is a lively new Italian restaurant from Maialino’s chef Nick Anderer. The chef de cuisine is Joe Tarasco.

Marta. Inspired by the rustic tradition of Roman pizzerie, the local haunts that churn out thin, crackly-crusted pizzas, Marta features an energetic open kitchen with two wood-burning ovens and an open-fire grill taking center stage.

Marta. Plain Pizza Bianca is served as an appetizer/welcome.

Marta – Pizza Margherita Classica is thin enough and crispy enough for an American Italian inspired pizza, I would rate it 7/10, because of the tomato sauce.

Marta. There are also table settings at the bar overlooking the pizzaioli, working on the bread and pizzas, and onto the two wood-burning ovens.  The restaurant was designed by the much in demand, Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects.  The restaurant exudes warmth and communal energy and is open throughout the day, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.
