Market St. restaurant, located in the quaint village of Rhinebeck, NY, inhabits a rustic tavern building, painstakingly rehabilitated into a chic yet casual setting. The welcoming muted gray tones of the Belgian linen banquets and chairs, paired with delicate Edison filament lighting creates the perfect backdrop for Chef Giovanni Scappin’s contemporary Italian menu served by a professional yet casual staff. Flanked in white subway tile, the wood burning pizza oven acts as the center piece in the warm ambience of this busy restaurant.
The menu at Market St. folds the finest Italian ingredients along with the freshest Hudson Valley fruits and vegetables into a wonderfully simple and modern approach to Italian cooking. Classic dishes such as lasagna with meat ragu and béchamel, porcini risotto with parsley and prosecco, and the light and fragrant Tuscan kale salad with pecorino toscano and dried currants sit beside more contemporary and composed dishes like the slowly baked salmon served with mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, and a black truffle vinaigrette. Tender Pizzas made in the Neoplitan style with the finest pressed San Marzano tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella are prepared in the crackling wood fired brick oven while freshly cut cheeses from both the Hudson Valley and Italy adorn butcher paper lined cutting boards set beside freshly sliced Prosciutto di Parma from Emilia-Romagna and Nostrano from California. Italian–American mainstays like Linguine with Meatballs, Chicken Parmigiana, and Penne puttanesca lend a comforting nostalgia and Southern Italian heartiness to the predominantly Mediterranean influenced Italian menu.
