Feeling hungry and craving some crunch? New York City is a pizza mecca and has more 99c pizza windows and thin crust woodfired fired pizza cafes than you can poke a pizza peel at. Don't queue up on the sidewalk with a bunch of tourists! Go a little more upmarket, to Marta restaurant.
Marta offers contemporary Italian by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group and occupies the spectacular ground floor space off the lobby of The Redbury Hotel, 29 E 29th St, New York. With an interior designed by Annabelle Selldorf, Marta is modern, warm and yet breezy, due to its pizza oven and soaring ceilings.
On the night we dined, service was impeccable and everything was delicious—from the carafes of carefully selected wine to the thin-crust wood-fired pizzas with rustic and healthy toppings. But don’t stop at pizza. The rabbit and ricotta meatballs are a must, as is any dish cooked alle brace, over the kitchen oven’s embers! Marta is also open for breakfast and lunch, seven days a week, so don’t be surprised if you take all your meals in this chic space.
