"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Taster's Cherce

The wife and I took a ride up to Port Chester this afternoon to check out the Mario Batali-Joe Bastianich food jernt, the Tarry Market.

Nice place. Not cheap, but no surprise there, right?

Then we stopped in for a bite next door at the Tarry Lodge:

Artichokes with mint.

Pizza with Guanciale, black truffles and a fried egg. Ka-Boom.

You stopped by Port Chester and didn't say hello?

I'm crushed...


Glad you had a good time here, there is a lot of good eating in Port Chester, amazing diversity for such a small town (village?)

If you want cheap eats the next time you're in Port Chester, walk down the street to Acuario's or Misti's (Peruvian), or Los Remolinos (Colombian), or Kioskos on Westchester Ave (Mexican).

B, please excuse this as it's not directed at you and I know you're doing everything you can...

Do you hear us, SNY? We HATE WordPress!!!

Ahem. So let me get this straight, you went to check out the Tarry Market, dined at the Tarry Lodge... and none of this took place at the Tarrytowns? Very odd...

{sob} Why would anyone do that to PIZZA??? >;)

[3] I have to disagree, Chyll. Not about Wordpress--it's awful. But rather your opinion of the pizza. Now THAT is what real pizza is supposed to look like. The egg in the middle brings back fond memories of pizza di quattro stagione at Pizzeria da Buffetto in Rome. Bravissimo!

[4] Meh, agree to disagree. I'm currently working on a food show on The Cooking Channel and I've been presented with very worldly combinations of foods that on their own I wouldn't mind that much, but together I immediately say "no thanks." I'm notoriously picky, though. I don't mind a burger stacked with lettuce, tomato, pickle and pepperjack cheese and smothered with A-1 sauce on a multi-grain bun, but the minute you start shaving white truffles on them (which one place on Houston near Mercer does)...

And, as noted here many times before, I am no fan of brick oven style pizza. I've had burnt paper and ash cross my plate before, but I can't start adding cheese and sauce to it and call it pizza >;)
