When I asked Dessert Zombie what he wanted to do for this birthday, he didn't hesitate about Marta. This new Danny Meyer establishment has been getting wonderful reviews. What can I say? That man really knows how to run a restaurant. No wonder he's consider the king of New York.
Because I wanted something fresh and green, I asked if we could share the insalata verde ($15). This arugula and market greens salad was lightly dressed with lemon and parmigiano cheese. A really nice light and refreshing dish.
The patate alla carbonara ($17) was an interesting take on carbonara sauce but with potatoes and on top of a pizza. The guanciale, black pepper, pecorino cheese, and loose eggs dotted every inch of the pie. This pie was very much enjoyed by everyone at the table.
