The bone broth process is labor-intensive. Chef Canora hauls heavy, 150 lb bags of animal bones to boiling pots and dissipates them into juice to produce the hot, new trend among Manhattanites.  Hearth charges $4.50 for a to-go cup of organic chicken broth and if you order bone marrow and garlic it costs you $10.50 a cup. At the end of the day,  Hearth’s average broth ticket sales are $15.00
