Yesterday I attended a lovely First Friday Luncheon at the James Beard House prepared by Chef Mikey Price of Market Table in Greenwich Village. Price (formerly of The Mermaid Inn) and his friend Joey Campanaro (of the Little Owl) opened Market Table, a unique restaurant/market combo where you can purchase the same ingredients used in your meal in the same location. Take a look at what his delicious menu included- I think my favorite part was shoe string potatoes (see above!). The wine selection was perfect and refreshing- a colorful rosy array that went from a sparkling rose to a robust summery red.
