Major Food Group (MFG) is a New York based restaurant and hospitality company founded by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick. The founders all exhibit a wealth of knowledge in the food, hospitality, and business sectors.

Our company is very passionate about food and very passionate about New York. Thus, we seek to find locations that are significant to the history of food in New York, and to New York itself. Whether it be Torrisi Italian Specialties and Parm on Mulberry Street, Parm at Yankee Stadium, or Rocco Restaurant, which is one of the oldest remaining Italian-American restaurants in the City, we choose places that have a story that we can tell. We aim to bring each location we operate to life in a way that is respectful of the past, exciting for the present, and sustainable for the future. We do this through the concepts that we create, the food that we cook, and the experience that we provide for our customers.

Just as we draw inspiration from history, we also draw inspiration from the bounty that surrounds us. We are highly dedicated to the use of local ingredients, and everything that we use in our restaurants is sourced domestically.
