At 2010 New York Rising Star Marc Forgione’s eponymous restaurant, formerly known as Forge, the son of Chef Larry Forgione cultivates a bold interpretation of new American cuisine. With experience under the likes of Laurent Tourondel and Kazuto Matsusaka, Chef Forgione creates dishes that are grounded in technique but imaginative and approachable, like kampachi tartare with avocado and American caviar or scallops with heirloom vegetables and aged balsamic. Walls of reclaimed cedar and suspended lanterns aglow with candlelight give the space a vintage country feel and echo the chef’s dedication to relaxed sophistication.
