Chef and restaurateurEdit

Canora started his career working as a line cook at Gramercy Tavern, an American restaurant in New York city.[6] In 1993, he moved to Piccolo Mondo as a chef, developing a small yet devoted following. He subsequently moved to Florence, where he worked at Cibrèo.[7]

Canora returned to US and opened La Cucina, an Italian seasonal restaurant in Edgartown, Massachusetts. La Cucina earned rave reviews and media attention with high profile guests including Bill Clinton. In 2001, he moved back to his home state of New York and joined Gramercy Tavern as a chef. In 2001, Gramercy Tavern’s owner selected Canora to open a new restaurant, Craft, which received three stars from The New York Times. During his time at Craft, he created the menu for Craftbar.[8]

In 2003, Canora launched his own venture, partnering with Paul Grieco to open Hearth Restaurant in Manhattan.[9][10] Canora and the restaurant have won or have been nominated six times for The James Beard Foundation Award.[11] In 2008, Grieco and Canora opened a wine bar, Terroir.[3]

BrodoEdit

In November, 2014, Canora opened Brodo which serves hot cups of bone broth.[12][13] The original location was a window attached to Hearth and has since expanded to a standalone shop and two temporary stalls in New York.[14][15]
