Chef Amy Brandwein’s sleek Italian market and osteria sells European imports such as Calabrian hot sauce and dried pastas, as well as fresh eggs and yogurt from regional farms. But Centrolina’s tart apple
marmellata ($6), made in-house from local pink lady and Granny Smith apples, is what you want to pick up and slather on baked breakfast goods (or any other marmellata conduit, really). At the restaurant, Brandwein uses it to add a sweet note to savory, smoky dishes, such as woodroasted porchetta ($29) and Brussels sprouts ($10).
