Ask general manager Paul Grieco to nutshell what Hearth is all about and heâ€™ll tell you the 10-year-old East Village dining destination is â€śa chef-driven restaurant where the chef is actually present.â€ť We couldnâ€™t say it better. Grieco and chef Marco Canora are well-versed in the templateâ€™s pluses and pitfalls: Both are alums of Gramercy Tavern. True to its name, Hearth is dedicated to warmth and simplicity, with a strong shot of perfectionism. Grieco is in charge of the extensive booze lists, the wine portion of which is all over the place in the best sense, though it does betray Griecoâ€™s infatuation (to put it mildly) with Riesling. Canoraâ€™s menu â€” Tuscan-flavor-forward, seasonal, and close-by-farmer-driven â€” is laid out in thirds, with first courses on the left, entrĂ©es and sides on the right, flanking a section highlighting a couple of mouthwatering â€śDishes to Share.â€ť They mean it: Weâ€™re talking a big-ass, whole roasted fish. Or perhaps youâ€™d prefer a rabbit. Weâ€™ll have the bunny. And weâ€™ll be sure to ask the chef to serve ours not braised or roasted, but fried.
