Major Good

Major Good believes that gathering around good food has the power to spark new ideas, strengthen communities, and inspire change.

A collaboration between the city’s most prominent hospitality company – Major Food Group – and its largest private funder of emergency food – Robin Hood – Major Good is a platform for New Yorkers to fight poverty by celebrating community and good food.

Major Good is not just a place to eat.

It’s an experience to be shared.

Your Chef

Before your reservation, you can sit down for a consultation with Chef Rich Torrisi while he crafts your custom menu, inspired by the season and your favorite foods.

Your Night

On the evening of your reservation, all you need to do is show up with your guests! Enter Torrisi Bar & Restaurant’s private dining room and enjoy: Your meal is cooked live by Chef Torrisi and his staff, and expertly paired with wine and/or cocktails. Every detail – décor, music, and more – will be executed to your liking.

Dinners start at $30,000 for up to 14 people. Chef consultation is an additional $10,000. Please contact Sasha Prado at for more information.

Food is the ingredient that binds us together.

Major Good is the brainchild of, and would not be possible without the creativity and generosity of Rich Torrisi, Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and the incomparable Major Food Group team.

We’re deeply grateful to Robin Hood’s Community Partners, the front-line poverty-fighters who, every day, help New Yorkers build better lives for themselves and their families.

All proceeds go directly to emergency food organizations and distribution systems across NYC.

Currently, 1.5 million New Yorkers are struggling to afford their next meal. That’s why Robin Hood partners with the city’s most effective emergency food organizations and distribution systems that provide a critical lifeline to hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers and their families.

Since its founding, Robin Hood has provided over $80 million in emergency food funding, helping 82 million meals get to New Yorkers who need them most.

Our Story

“Torrisi has always been more than a restaurant – it is the living, breathing essence of Major Food Group. In its earliest days, it was the birthplace of our innovative approach to food. And now, in partnership with Robin Hood, it’s our unique way of giving back to the city we love. After several years of being closed to the public, we’re so excited to re-open Torrisi’s doors to do MAJOR GOOD. We can’t wait to cook for you.”
