New owners bring fresh focus to Orta

Chef Brett Williams calls Orta his “third baby,” along with two youngsters at home in Scituate. He and his wife, Cara, bought the Pembroke restaurant last August from Jimmy Burke, his longtime employer and mentor.

Burke and his wife, Joanie Wilson, opened Orta, named for a lake in the Piedmont region of Italy, in 2009. (The Burke-Wilson team has since launched JW’s Burger Bar and JW’s Wood Fired Pizza Shack, both of Scituate.)
