Batali and Bastianich store to open in Port Chester

To go along with the Tarry Lodge, Mario and Joe are opening a store called the Tarry Market on the corner of Mill and Main (US 1) in Port Chester.

They just took the construction boards down, but there is still paper covering the windows.

I am all for artisan meats coming to my town, but if they hurt Kneaded Bread's business by selling bread, then I don't know if I can shop there in good conscience.

  1. "but if they hurt Kneaded Bread's business by selling bread, then I don't know if I can shop there in good conscience."

    Why?

    If Danny Meyer opens up a BBQ place in Port Chester will you not go because it will hurt Q's business?

      Danny Meyer is not coming to Port Chester. We have just a handful of good places, and if one of them gets pushed out I will be upset!

        Handful of good places in Port Chester?

        IMHO, you have a wonderful selection of foods...try coming up to North Salem and see what you get.

    2. Whoops...don't know what happened with the last post post that repeated repeated so much much!

        Kind of torn on this one. It's one thing to open another BBQ Restaurant or in this case Bread Shop. It is an entirely another to open one next door! I think this is just a case of the rich big guys, picking on the little guy. Kneaded Bread is awesome and I for one will pass on the Batali/Bastianich place.

          At 70,000 ft, I think they will have more than bread. Did you expect a store like this not to sell bread?

      2. I don't see the problem. You don't have to buy the bread at Tarry if they do have it.

          Hey guys, it's not even open yet, let's reserve judgement!

        2. Doubt very much that there will be a problem. I don't think the Tarry Market will be a bakery, per se. While, as others have said, we will have to abide the opening to know for sure, I had heard that the focus of the Market will be on imported Italian goodies and, hopefully, it will be a local outlet for the salumi made by Mario's father.

            I agree reposado! great salumi from the father. and as debmom points out who knows if they are even going to sell bread! and the bread at tarry lodge is not that good anyway. the pizza is superb but the table bread is poop.

              1. re: MisterBill2

                Tarry Market will probably not sell bread for retail. See my post below. :)

            1. I peeked in the other day. It's HUGE. They have many cold cases, but no product yet. And I didn't see any ovens, but I could be wrong. Perhaps they will sell salumi, and the Batali cookware?

              While we're on the subject, the foccacia at Tarry Lodge is awful, so perhaps Kneaded Bread is safe?
