At Hearth’s Edge, A Chef Sees A Window
Cook with a cause
James Beard Award-winning chef Marco Canora always wanted to offer something from the tiny takeout window at Hearth, his popular restaurant in New York City’s East Village. It took 11 years but the right idea eventually struck: delicious bone broth, served up like coffee in a to-go cup. Drinking bone broth was a new way of life for Marco personally. A distinguished career in cooking left its indelible marks: too much carb-loading, too much drinking, resulting in gout, high cholesterol, and extra weight. Drinking nutritious bone broth, brewed by Marco himself, became a regular part of his new healthier diet. Inspired by his own rebound, the new and improved Marco was excited to offer his fellow New Yorkers a more nutritious, if not equally addictive, alternative to coffee. Brodo was born in 2014 from that window overlooking First Avenue, with Marco personally ladling out the first cups. Marco and his team now serve Brodo at several locations, including the original takeout window and the flagship walk-in shop in Manhattan’s West Village. Brodo also ships directly to 48 U.S. states.
Awarded the Best Chef: New York City in 2017 by the James Beard Foundation, Marco is the author of several books, including Salt to Taste: The Key To Confident Delicious Cooking (2009), A Good Food Day: Reboot Your Health with Food That Tastes Great (2014) and Brodo: A Bone Broth Cookbook (2015).
Students of History
Brewing bone broth is a tradition dating back thousands of years. Industrialization made it easier and cheaper to make but also zapped it of it wholesomeness. The Brodo team is dedicated to preserving and perfecting the authentic craft. At our broth shops, we also offer this ancient elixir with a few modern refinements. Stop by our flagship store in Manhattan’s West Village, where our skilled staff will custom-make a hot broth beverage of your own choosing. Watch as we crush up fresh herbs with a mortar and pestle and blend up frothy cups of broth with healthy fats like bone marrow, coconut oil, and grass-fed butter.
Our Broth Tribe
In just a few years, Brodo has cultivated a growing fanbase of #BrothBelievers. It’s part of our mission to provide nutrient-rich bone broth to the people who will benefit from it, like mothers and their babies. Our mineral-rich broth helps developing babies build strong bones and keeps moms’ bones from being depleted in the process. That’s why Brodo has partnered with NYU Langone Medical Center since 2016 to provide free nourishing broth daily to new and expectant mothers in the maternity ward.
