Fast Track: Big Talent at Little Giant
Blue-jeans cuisine from the talented chefs at Little Giant in New York City.
"We're all about a blue-jeans approach to high-end dining," says Julie Taras, co-chef and co-owner, with Tasha Garcia, of Little Giant, a tiny restaurant on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Their menu is full of dishes with whimsical names like "swine-of-the-week" (heritage pork) and "box of rocks" (chorizo-steamed cockles), but their cooking is serious and soulful.
Little Giant is located at 85 Orchard St. (corner of Broome St.) in New York City; 212-226-5047.
