The way the chefs see it, they are a family. Their relationships are complex, and they've overlapped in many kitchens, but they never forgot where they came from. Originally, Tarasco, Anderer and Pfeifer worked together in the Gramercy Tavern kitchen before Anderer opened Maialino with Danny Meyer and Union Square Hospitality group. Soon after, Tarasco and Pfeifer joined the Maialino team. After a few years at Maialino, Tarasco and Anderer started on a new restaurant venture: opening Marta. Currently, Pfeifer is the head chef at Maialino, Anderer is the chef at Pizzeria Martina, and Tarasco is the chef for Marta, Caffe Marchio and Vini e Fritti. Weiss, who also started baking desserts for Maialino, now dishes out pastries at Maialino, Marta, Caffe Marchio and Vini e Fritti.
