Just a hop across the Connecticut border and you’ll find a mini Eataly at Tarry Market! An invitation to a private event (including a market tour with co-owner Joe Bastianich) finally pushed me to make the drive to Port Chester, NY. What a treat to go behind the scenes and hear from the knowledgeable staff. I was drawn to the bread, so get ready for a carb-heavy post.

This Tarry Market facility makes the bread for the nearby Batali/Bastianich restaurants.

Grazie mille to Judy (and Tiffany) for extending the invitation and to Denise of Dee Cuisine for initially suggesting a visit to this suburban Eataly alternative.
