Market - Stamford
Has anyone tried this place yet? They opened a few weeks ago... from the owner of Match. I have a reservation this Saturday, menu looks good.
We are going this saturday as well and looking forward to it. We were at Match this past weekend and spoke to the hostess about Market. She said they are doing well, very busy (almost too busy). The menu sounds very interesting, although chef Storch does have a tendency to overdo many dishes with too many ingredients. I'm hoping for a lighter touch at Market. We have been long time Match customers and do love many many things they do there. That being said, the last couple of times we've been there, it seems as though there has been a dropoff in the dish preparation/quality. I'm hoping they are just stretched a little too thin with the new opening and that everything will go back to normal soon! Looking forward to eating at Market and hearing everyone else's experiences!
I agree that Storch can put too many ingredients in one dish - they work well together but if one is picky like I am, there might be issues. I was looking at the menu for Market and it appears he has done this in his new venture as well. I find myself reading the description of a dish - then deciding what I would request to be left off the plate. With that said, the kitchen is always very accommodating and the service has always been good. I am a long time fan of Match and I'm hoping Market will become a favorite for me as well.
