Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Salute culinary evolution with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $20 worth of classic deli fare at Belle Fair Country Market in Rye Brook.
Each day, the crafty cooks at Belle Fair Country Market meld savory ingredients into an expansive array of fresh-made sandwiches and wraps, breakfast specialties, and grill fare. Jolt awake drowsy tongues with a burrito-bound blend of egg, cheese, onions, spinach and mushrooms ($4.50), or fuel up for a tranquil afternoon of dismantling model airplanes with a breaded-eggplant panini layered with fresh mozzarella cheese and roasted peppers ($7.99). On weekends while still in season, lobster rolls present chunks of buttery meat and homemade garlic aioli on a toasted potato roll ($8.99 for a single; $13.99 for a double). Herbivorous experimenters alchemize discordant greens into ambitiously leafy ensembles at the chopped-salad bar, which boasts more than thirty ingredients, ten dressings, and croutons shaped like Colorado ($3.49 for a large salad).
Replete with large windows under a roof of multiple gables, Belle Fair Country Market conjures a welcoming, colonial-style atmosphere. Find refuge from overcast skies in the comfort of Belle Fair's indoor dining space, or shoot down weather balloons of prey while munching underneath the white umbrellas that line its sandstone-walled patio.
