Sun of a Gun
Still one of my favorite places. The pimento cheese and shrimp will never get old.

I’m very picky about pizza and Mozza is still one of the best. But the carrots were so fantastic that I had to go back for them.
shaved carrots, fennel, mizuna rabe, caraway yogurt & rye
meatballs, mozzarella di bufala, tomato, chili flakes & fresh oregano
It had been a very long time since I had been to Co. It is still incredibly solid and holds its own next to the multitude of new pizza spots that have sprung up.
Roasted beets – toasted pine nuts, dill, chives, citrus-fennel yogurt vinaigrette
Meatball – tomato, mozzarella, veal meatballs, caramelized onions, olives, aged pecorino, oregano
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!
insalata di farro – farro piccolo, grilled brussels sprouts, honeycrisp applies, plave vecchio
suppli al telefono – tomato risotto croquettes, mozzarella
capesante – grilled scallops, romanesco cauliflower, pine nuts
funghi – fontina, mozzarella, hen of the woods, chanterelles, red onion, thyme
salsiccia – pork sausage, cremini mushrooms, pecorino
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
Salsiccia – pork sausage, cremini mushrooms, pecorino
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.
Suppli Alla Terrazza – green risotto croquettes, mozzarella, mixed herbs Seppioline – grilled baby cuttlefish, potato, calabrese chili
Funghi – fontina, hen of the woods, hedgehogs, red onion, thyme
Anatra – duck confit, fennel, golden raisins, fontina
