Profile

You’d have thought things couldn’t get any rosier for Nick Anderer, Danny Meyer’s Roman-food guru and former chef of Maialino and its sister pizzeria-restaurant, Marta. But, he says, he felt confined by fine dining, and he and Meyer are both aware that the tide was turning in the restaurant world toward accessibility. In other words, the time was right for Martina, a quick-serve spinoff of Marta. Unlike the wood-fired pies at the mothership, Martina’s are smaller, cheaper ($7 to $12), cooked in a gas oven in about two minutes, and doled out counter-service style. But they share Marta’s ultra-thin-crust DNA: Martina’s four-slice pies use the same dough, the same California tomatoes, the same Di Palo’s mozzarella. One of those vibrating pager thingamajigs Danny Meyer popularized at Shake Shack will buzz you when your pizza’s ready; while you wait, you can snack on supplì, Rome’s answer to Sicily’s arancini, potato crocchette, or maybe some chicken meatballs. Despite the downscaling, Martina teems with the sort of amenities you’ve come to expect from a Meyer establishment: a “Champagne fridge” stocked with a nice selection of half-bottles; Cappelletti Spritz on tap; custom La Boîte spice blends like garlic-Parmigiano salt alongside the chile flakes and oregano; fior di latte soft serve with candied hazelnuts and chocolate-amaro sauce. But when it comes to one particular in-demand amenity, Anderer won’t budge: delivery.
