The "Market" side of store/restaurant Market Table, the much-buzzed-about effort from Mike Price (of the Mermaid Inn) and Joey Campanaro and Gabriel Stulman (of Little Owl fame), opened its doors today in the West Village. The fine foods shop, located at 54 Carmine Street, occupies the space that formerly housed eclectic eatery Shopsin's. Market Table has much to offer gourmands in the way of fancy nibbles. A Racked informant, who checked out the place this morning, sends word that "they're selling the best dried fruit i've ever had. I know this sounds insane, but this stuff is completely nuts. Dried white figs, white mullberries, etc." The pastries are also reportedly amazing, and you may recall that the beef being sold here is supplied by Pat LaFrieda, a primo purveyor. The restaurant adjacent to the shop is slated to open next week. For more on Market Table, head over to our brother site Eater.
