First Look: The Market Italian Village
After months of construction, renovation, and experimentation, The Market Italian Village opens today at the corners of Summit Street and Third Avenue in the Italian Village.
The 2,500 square foot space is simultaneously a butcher, deli counter, bakery, wine shop, café, bar, and a European-style restaurant that serves small plates for lunch and dinner that range from $7-$20.
Guests can enjoy dishes like Duck Pizza, with duck two ways – confit and bacon – fig and red wine jam, brie, arugula, and sumac, or the Cured Green Tomato Salad, finished with smoked tomato coulis on both the market (all day) and bistro (meal time) menus.
The Market Italian Village can seat 78 guests at a time, which includes 24 seats on the patio. The layout is fresh, functional, and open; not a trace of the old corner store remains, replaced by a multi-purpose market that caters to its community of families, young professionals, foodies.
The Market Italian Village is open Sunday-Thursday, 7am – 11pm, and Friday-Saturday, 7am – 1am. For a longer look at the services they offer, visit www.facebook.com/MarketItalianVillage.
