Chef Spotlight: Lena Ciardullo, Marta
Favorite Cut: Double-Cut Pork Chop for Two
Union Square Hospitality Group was an early supporter of reintroducing Heritage breeds to the American public. Marta restaurant, led by Chef Lena Ciardullo, is the group's Roman inspired pizzeria that also celebrates the Italian tradition of cooking seasonal specials “alla brace”—over open embers. This Double-Cut Pork Chop for Two comes from their whole-animal Heritage butchery program and is Danny Meyer's favorite dish on the menu — and ours too!
