Tarry Market

After reading about the prime rib sandwich at Tarry Market, and having never been, I decided to take my son there for lunch yesterday.

First off, I was happy to see that the market has its own parking lot. It is just past the railway overpass on the left. I found it by accident, but it was very convenient.

My son ordered the prime rib sandwich, which I tasted and which was delicious. I decided to sample some of their other offerings, so I had a small piece of eggplant parm, a meatball, and a sweet sausage with red peppers and onions. All were good, and I would place them several levels above the average for an Italian deli.

We then decided to do a complete tour of the market, and a little shopping. Though most things were expensive, I thought that the level of quality justified the prices. We bought a focaccia fougasse that was absolutely delicious, and a very good baguette. The selection of fresh pastas were very good, and we wound up buying some triangle shaped ravioli stuffed with mushrooms and ricotta salata. There were ravioli stuffed with short ribs, standard ricotta ravioli, and some tiny four cheese-stuffed pasta that we also bought, among others. There is a wealth of salumi, cheese, and random pantry items, of which I bough borlotti beans and farro, but not the dried black chickpeas, which I may get next time. I wanted some fennel pollen, and when it wasn't available on the floor, a guy I took to be the manager of the market, volunteered to get me a small amount from the kitchen, where they had it. I appreciated that.

My son couldn't leave without a cannoli, which was made to order (and took a while). It was delicious, and the cannoli cream was so fresh and milky. I loved it, but my son missed it having some chocolate chips.

All the produce looked (and tasted -- they had many samples out) delicious, and I wound up buying a quart of mixed heirloom tomatoes, which had varieties I had never seen before. A lunchtime tomato salad is definitely in order for today.

All in all, I think that this is a great addition to the specialty market scene in Westchester.
