Major Food Group (MFG) is a hospitality company founded and wholly-owned by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick. From a small, intimate restaurant located in Little Italy, MFG evolved into a hospitality powerhouse and one of the fastest growing hospitality companies in the United States within a span of 7 years, garnering national and international attention and accolades along the way for our unique style and culinary prowess.
MFG currently operates eighteen restaurants: Carbone (New York, Hong Kong, Las Vegas), ZZ’s Clam Bar, Dirty French, Santina, Parm (Soho, Yankee Stadium, Upper West Side, Battery Park, Barclays Center) and Sadelle’s. MFG also operates Lobby Bar at the Ludlow Hotel, and provides all food, beverage and event services for the Ludlow Hotel. Most recently, MFG opened THE GRILL, THE POOL, The Pool Lounge and The Lobster Club in The Seagram Building, completing an iconic restoration of the most historic landmark restaurant space in America.
We seek to transcend traditional hospitality models by offering multi-dimensional, immersive experiences that are deeply-rooted in and inspired by relevant history and culture. Every aspect of each concept is meticulously designed and extensively researched, with the goal of transporting our guests upon arrival. The brands we create are more than brick and mortar establishments, they represent a way of life. We aim to operate in a way that is respectful of the past, exciting for the present, and sustainable for the future through the concepts that we create, the food and beverage that we present, and the overall experience we provide for our customers.
