The Market at Gus’s

Over 80 years ago, Gus Kneuer started welcoming patrons to his now historical, Franklin Park Tavern; Gus’s Franklin Park Restaurant, in Harrison, NY. Shortly after he took ownership of the tavern, Gus’s hospitality and friendliness were so well received, that it became known as Gus’s to all. Soon after, the establishment’s reputation grew and seafood was added to the menu along with traditional American fare and Gus’s signature German dishes. The Tavern’s warmth, good cheer along with the quality of the food quickly made it a landmark destination throughout Westchester County.

Thirty years ago, Gus passed the torch to his son and grandson, Ernie Kneuer, who is now General Manager of The Market at Gus’s. In 1995, they opened a small fish store next to Gus’s Franklin Park Tavern to offer quality seafood for their patrons to enjoy at home.

Over the years, The Market at Gus’s has grown to offer the best quality seafood, a renowned full-service Butcher Shoppe featuring beef from Master Purveyors in Hunts Point, Gus’s Kitchen catering, and all the ingredients needed to prepare a great Gus’s meal at home.

The Darien Butcher Shop

The Darien Butcher Shop serves Lower Fairfield County as a premiere neighborhood-style destination for the highest quality meat. Recognizing that the perfect meal doesn’t begin and end with only the meat — DBS also offers house made, crowd-pleasing side dishes as well as a thoughtfully curated selection of gourmet specialty products and pantry items.

Darien native and Chef/Owner Peter Crawford’s longstanding relationships with the best suppliers and decades of training in top restaurants have brought a new level of exceptional service and expertise to the greater Darien community. The Darien Butcher Shop Staff cater to these local tastes with a real passion for excellent food and knowledge about it. At DBS, you may come in for a pork chop, but you will likely leave with a new recipe, fresh bread or veggies, some BBQ inspiration…and a new friend.

Peter’s early food experiences and restaurant work inspired him to attend The New England Culinary Institute (NECI) in Burlington, VT. After graduating with advanced placement, Peter went on to work alongside some of the greatest chefs of our time: Charlie Palmer, Jean-Georges, Neil Gallagher and Terrence Brennen. Allured by invitations to work as a private chef on celebrity yachts and vacations, Peter left the grind of New York kitchens to explore foodie adventures abroad — eventually returning to the New York restaurant scene holding management positions at such acclaimed restaurants as Bouley and The Oak Room.

Back40 Mercantile

Back 40 Mercantile is dedicated to providing high-quality products that are sourced from small-batch purveyors who create products in a way that we can all feel good about.

Our brands are either organic, and/or sustainable, local where possible, and are produced by real people. At The Back 40, the product quality, look, and taste comes first but you can also rest assured that it was made in a way that is not harmful to our world.

Back40 Mercantile is nostalgic for a time when the word organic to describe food was redundant, when communities purchased their dry goods locally and conversed during the transaction, and when farmers and craftsmen were admired for their talents.

The Pizza Truck Company

Fairfield County’s ONLY wood-fire pizza truck. Since 2010, The Pizza Truck Company’s goal was to be the best food truck in the business. Wood-fire is the way Italians have been making pizza for centuries.  While we are rooted in tradition — we imported our Valoriani wood-burning pizza ovens from Italy — but we are intrigued by innovation. That combination of tradition and innovation allows us to push ourselves to stay ahead of the competition and to be a trendsetter in the field. With over 1,000 events under our belt and whether we are catering a small gathering or vending at an event for thousands, we provide our customers with only the freshest pizza made from the finest ingredients.  Our goal is to not only have a consistent product but to exceed expectations. We are proud, but never satisfied in our quest for the perfect pizza and serving our customers.
