NYC – 11/18/16 – Marta

I enjoy all of the USHG restaurants for different reasons but what they have in common is that they are always solid and safe choices in a very good way.  The pizza at Marta may not have my favorite crust, but it is still very good and I can polish off one by myself quite easily.  I’m glad I didn’t give up on Marta after the early days when the service was almost dreadful.  A for improvement!

NYC – 7/15/16 – Marta

Marta is yet another great place that I seem to keep forgetting about even though each time I am here I love the food even if service can often be spotty.  As somewhat of an expert on farro salads, this version was absolutely fantastic and is easily a dish that I could eat everyday.  And yes I ate the whole pizza by myself.  Don’t judge.

Insalata di farro – farro piccolo, grilled summer beans, sweet peppers, pecorino

NYC – 3/15/15 – Marta

I am very happy that the service at Marta has improved since my first visit shortly after opening.  As I like a thin, crisp crust this is one of my favorites in NYC.  But my previous experience left so much to be desired that I was very hesitant to return.  I still think there is much room for improvement but at least it is headed in the right direction.
