In 2009, Carbone opened Torrisi Italian Specialties with partner Rich Torrisi. What began as an extraordinary Italian-American deli quickly evolved, serving innovative prix-fixe dinners in the evenings and garnering instant praise—not to mention a James Beard nomination for “Best New Restaurant.” In 2010, Carbone and Torrisi partnered with Jeff Zalaznick to form Major Food Group and open casual Italian sandwich restaurant, Parm. They’ve since expanded with two Parm locations, an entirely revamped tasting menu at Torrisi, and a new project in the works. In 2012, Carbone was one of Food & Wine Magazine’s “Best New Chefs in America.”
