For handmade pasta and fine meats and cheeses in Port Chester, NY, Tarry Market is the place. By the time we got to Mario Batali’s charming shop, around 2 p.m., they were out of the fresh pastries we’d come for. I settled for a chocolate chip walnut cookie and bought some apricot jam for my mom.
Why were we late to the market? Too busy chomping on burgers at Burgers, Shakes & Fries. Mine had a fried egg, mushrooms and hot peppers. The bread was soft yet crispy and scraped at the roof of my mouth. It barely held together as the burger was devoured.
