Market St, Rhinebeck, NY

May 23, 2013

After our visit to Coach Farm, we headed to Rhinebeck just for lunch (and to, of course, shop in all the small privately owned stores!) As I walked through the door of Market St, I inhaled the smoky aroma from the wood oven and decided right then that we had to order one of their pizzas.

We sipped the crisp, citrus-scented Gavi di Gavi (Cortese), Tenuta Olim Bauda, Piemonte, 2011 ($44)  while perusing the menu, deciding which pizza to order. Since one of our group is a vegetarian, we chose the margherita ($12)— mozzarella, oregano and basil atop a fresh tomato sauce on a crisp crust.

The kitchen sent us a delicate and earthy crostini topped with pea shoot puree and drizzled with yogurt.

We also split two of their fresh salads – the diced roasted beets, topped with crumbled Coach Farm goat cheese and lots of fresh peppery arugula ($10); and the shredded organic kale with radish slivers, currants  toasted pine nuts and thin slices of Tuscan pecorino ($10).

Our main dish was perfectly cooked (still moist inside) slowly roasted salmon with mashed potatoes and fresh sugar snap peas with a black truffle vinaigrette ($19).

Still having room for dessert we shared the affogato – gelato drowned in fresh espresso topped in whipped cream and some fresh biscotti.  I recommend stopping here where shopping in Rhinebeck!
