WELCOME TO MARTHA

Martha is the patron saint of hospitality and a dragon tamer.
And a restaurant in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

We’re an evolution of The Brooklyn Sandwich Society, from the people that brought you Brooklyn Edible Social Club.

Martha believes in buying produce from her neighbors and cooking it five ways before it’s gone. She doesn’t like the word “local”. She likes duck, Dragon’s Tongue beans, and playing dancehall in the open kitchen.

She’s a butcher and a gardener and a good dancer.

We can’t wait for you to meet her.


 

BEHIND THE STOVES

Chef Andres Valbuena
Originally from Caracas, a burgeoning South American city, Valbuena cut his chops around the globe at fine-dining temples such as Mugaritz in Spain’s Basque Country and The French Laundry in Napa Valley. Upon moving to New York City, Chef Valbuena helmed the underground supper club, Brooklyn Edible Social Club, while cultivating his facial hair. In 2012 he began a new phase as restaurateur with The Brooklyn Sandwich Society – now called Martha.
