Hearth chef Marco Canora has added a new to-go window (door?) on the First Avenue side of the restaurant.
And starting today, you can get broth and soup at Brodo (Italian for broth) ...
Here's the menu (you can click on the image for the details) …
Canora talked with New York magazine/Grub Street, who first reported on Brodo, about how all this came about:
“Twenty years of eating bread, drinking booze, smoking cigarettes, and working in kitchens really fucked me up in a big way.”
Until quite recently, you see, Canora was not the epitome of good health. He’d been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, he was suffering from gout, his cholesterol was through the roof, and he was thirty pounds overweight. Now, at 45, having made some major changes in his diet, he says he’s in the best shape of his life. And he attributes not a small part of this reversal of fortune to daily doses of the broth he’s always made as a base for Hearth’s soups and stocks.
Hearth is located at 403 E. 12th St.
