Sunday Lunch at Market Street in Rhinebeck

After our trip to the Rhinebeck Farmers Market last Sunday, Victoria and I went to lunch at Market St
 Victoria had been to Market St. once before and L.O.V.E.D it, which made me extremely excited.
 When I first walked in I was surprised by how bright and open the space was. I absolutely love all the little details that make Market St. so unique.  Shades of grey throughout and each table set with mismatched Italian bread plates, that look as though they're from an Italian grandmother's collection. There's also a beautiful wood oven in the back that your eye gravitates to as soon as you enter.

 Their menu is a perfect balance of both breakfast and lunch items.
To begin, we split their assorted salumi, with Tuscan Pecorino, olives, cornichons and pickled onions. It was a perfect choice.  
We also ordered a bottle of wine to share and unfortunately, it wasn't our favorite. Lesson learned, never order a Sylvaner again.
The service at Market St. was wonderful. Our server, Jenna, was on point at all times, refilling our water and wine, as well as checking in to see if we were enjoying ourselves, which we were!
After our salumi plate, we decided on two pizzas to share from their wood burning oven.  I had the Caprina Pizza, with a fig-rosemary spread, goat cheese, pear, arugula, and truffle oil. Seeing truffle oil on the menu is what lured me in.
Victoria opted for the Boscaiola Pizza with mixed mushrooms, mozzarella, tomato, and herbs.
While the presentation of each pizza was superb and looked scrumptious, I wished there was more of the fig-rosemary spread on the Caprina. The crust however, was delicious and had the perfect combination of crispiness and chewiness. It was also a perfect thickness for being cooked in a wood oven. 
There wasn't enough room in our bellies to finish all our pizza, so we took it to go, finished the last sips of our wine and headed out onto the streets of Rhinebeck to do a little shopping.

I'm excited for my next experience at Market St., most likely for dinner, whenever that may be! Remember to check them out and visit their Facebook page.
