Piastra is a newish restaurant in Marietta on the Marietta Square. Many items are locally sourced and bread, pasta, pastries and even sausage are made in house. Though the decor isn’t going to rival a midtown spot, it makes up for that with its tasty entrees.
Originally from Boston, Chef Greg Lipman fell in love with food at a young age when his Grandmother Rose showed him how to make chocolate chip cookies. From there, the Piastra chef has had a life long passion for cooking. After training at the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont, he worked in several restaurants in the Boston area. A brief stint had him traveling around the world on a yacht under the tutelidge of a classically trained French chef. Before becoming the head chef at Piastra he worked at the Glenn Hotel and at Alon’s Bakery.
