Josie and I were lucky enough to get a private tour of the new Market Bistro by Price Chopper. Market Bistro isn't your standard grocery store, it is a nexus between a grocery store and restaurant. Besides being a significantly better than average grocery store, there is also a complete selection of prepared foods offered. Everything from salads and subs, to sushi, to BBQ smoked on site. There is even a full service restaurant and a cooking school within the Market Bistro
The supermarket itself is larger than a normal store, and has an entire aisle dedicated to organic and gluten free food, an aisle for cultural food, and usually two or three shelves in every aisle dedicated to local products. So instead of just finding Coke and Pepsi, you can also get a wide selection of Jones sodas, or get locally produced peanut butter instead of just Peter Pan.
It is an impressive store with an exciting new concept; merging the idea of a restaurant with a grocery store. We tried a variety of different foods from 'Bistro Blvd' and it was all quite impressive. It is hard to pick a favorite from the food we tried, but the smoked ribs and the lobster roll were among our favorites.
Market Bistro is located in Latham at 873 New Loudon Road. Whats not to love about a grocery store that has a larger selection than normal and a complete restaurant environment as well? I'm most excited to see what they do with the cooking school. It will be nice to take a class and be able to buy everything you need to make a recipe at home at the same place.
