Marben’s Rob Bragagnolo to open Carver, a full-service sandwich spot
The city has plenty of sandwich options, but can you ever have too much of a good thing? Marben’s executive chef, Rob Bragagnolo, is opening his own spot dedicated to the much-loved lunch staple. Carver is scheduled to open later this year in an (as yet) undisclosed downtown location. The full-service restaurant will specialize in sandwiches made with slow-roasted meat. “All of our menu items will feature the incredible ingredients being cultivated and raised on small, family run, local Ontario farms that put a ton of hard work and passion into traditional, natural and responsible farming,” says Bragagnolo. Some of those menu items: Haldimand County beef, Duroc pork and Porchetta 1924. The “1924” refers to the year Bragagnolo’s grandfather Angelo Zizzola opened his first trattoria in Veneto, Italy. “He became famous for his slow-roasted meats and a legendary dessert called “La Fregolotta.” Taste of Toronto attendees will have a chance to sample some of Carver’s sammies during the festival’s lunch session on July 5 at Fort York.
