Carrie took me to brunch for Father's day since the kids aren't with us. I decided on a restaurant we've been wanting to try for months, The Market: Italian Village.
They were fairly full when we arrived for our one o'clock reservations but we were quickly seated. The Market is a classic small market/bottle shop, with coolers and shelves of wine along the outer walls, and a deli counter in back by the kitchen. They atmosphere was friendly and warm, and we'll likely be back soon.
We started with bacon wrapped dates, today filled with blue cheese and plated on top of an espresso creme and maple syrup. Damn they were good. I could have eaten 20-30 and called it good but there were other temptations on the menu.
My main course was Biscuits and gravy, which today was lamb sausage gravy over za'atar seasoned savory biscuits. Amazing flavor and seasoning in the gravy, and nice crunchy biscuits with great flavor and soft centers. Maybe the best gravy I've ever had over biscuits.
In all it was a great meal with my beautiful wife, and a new favorite restaurant to add to our go-to list here in Columbus.
