As the son of American culinary legend Larry Forgione, Marc established his unique culinary style for new-age American cuisine while working with several international powerhouses, including Laurent Tourondel of BLT and Michael Guérard of Eugenie les Bains. His innovative use of quality ingredients paired with modern twists on American classics helped to carve his own identity in the culinary world, leading to a two-star review from The New York Times, Zagat Guide’s 2009 ‘Newcomers”, Modern Luxury’s “Top 25 Restaurants in NYC,” and Forbe’s “All Star Eatery,” among other accolades. In 2010, Forgione received Star Chefs Rising Chef award and in the same year earned the coveted Iron Chef Title by winning the Food Networks Next Iron Chef competition.
