Story by Dan Hust

toast salad and roasted pork, you get the sense that owners Marla Puccetti and Paul Nanni really care – about the menu, about the setting, about the people who make their restaurant the Delaware River destination it’s become. “That’s one of the reasons we moved,” says Marla, a small-town native who became a successful TV producer in New York. “We wanted to feel part of the community.” That meant much more than opening up shop in the very center of Main Street, Narrowsburg, NY. The former laundromat’s walls were repainted, its cozy interior redecorated, its historic tin ceiling and wood floors preserved. From opening day in 2012 to now, Marla and Paul have been very visible presences

within The Heron, welcoming guests and constantly offering creatively imagined food and drink specials. “We want people to feel like we’re cooking for them,” explains Paul, a CIA-trained chef who with the help of his dedicated team prepares everything from scratch. Be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, meals are a journey into the unique without straying too far from classic comfort food. And you can also feel satisfied with where these meals originated – oftentimes, farms and producers within 25 miles of The Heron. “You’re not just supporting The Heron,” Paul notes. “You’re supporting all these farms and resources, too.” The list is right on the menu, in fact: Beach Lake Bakery, Tonjes Dairy, Calkins Creamery, Eve’s Cidery, Java Love Coffee, Silver Heights Farm, the Anthill Farm, and more. Paul can tell you how his ingredients were grown, harvested, delivered and prepared. He’s involved every step of the way. “Everything is made here,” he affirms. “We make our own breakfast sausage, chicken liver mousse, and even ice cream.” The drink menu is equally local: try one of 15 regionally-produced beers (or 19 other domestics and imports), half a dozen NYS ciders, 24 varieties of wine, or indulge in any of the 12 mixed drinks Marla has personally concocted. (She also creates each and every dessert.) “We like to have fun with the menu,”

says Paul, who finds inspiration from the nearly two dozen local farms from which he sources ingredients. Their chief joy, however, comes from old friends and new guests of The Heron. “I remember a face,” Marla nods. “And I make it a point to say hi!” Isn’t it time you came over for dinner? Open Mondays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Thursdays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 5-9 p.m., Fridays from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 5-10 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and 5-10 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Offering brunch and dinner inside (with views of Main Street) and outside (on a deck overlooking the deepest point in the Delaware River). Start breakfast or lunch with a homemade biscuit or local yogurt, then aim for crispy local eggs on cheesy jalapeno grits, or a hot ham & Swiss rye sandwich with pickles and mayo. The beet salad comes with organic mixed greens and a lemon poppy vinaigrette, while there are three varieties of baked macand-cheese: scallop & sweet pea, Andouille sausage & peppers, or carmelized onion & bread crumbs. 6 C AT S K I L L S

Kick off dinner with a corned beef & cabbage soup or a deviled egg of the day, or indulge in the homemade chicken liver mousse or braised tripe. Follow that up with a main entree of roasted or fried chicken (sourced locally), a 12-ounce ribeye steak, raw oysters on the half shell or blackened catfish. The baked mac-and-cheese dishes and salads from the brunch menu are also available. The full bar offers an enormous array of local, regional and international beer, wine and cider choices, plus its own seating. For a memorable visit, try the Velvet Crush (monks sour ale, chinotto, creme de violette and crushed ice) or the Moscow Mule (titos, intense ginger, fentimans ginger and lime). On- and off-site catering is also available, with menus that reflect The Heron’s popular offerings but can be tailored to the particular gathering. The complete list of food and drink can be seen on The Heron’s website.

You’ve heard the term “when pigs fly,” but have you ever seen the image on a pillowcase (right)? By Delaine’s varied offerings appeal not just to your sense of whimsy but of all things beautiful – like this breathtaking glass globe (below), created by museum-class glassblower Sean Messenger. Goblets which double as candleholders grace the top of a one-of-a-kind black cherry bar/island (bottom left), fashioned by local artist Terry Roberts. Or take your pick of these unique clocks (bottom right).

J

udy and Doug Knight were shopping for gifts during a visit to Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia, when they made a startling discovery. “The majority of gifts were not made in America!” Judy recalls. Did they say something to the manager? Find another store? Write a letter? No, Judy and Doug went one gigantic step better. They opened their own shop in downtown Narrowsburg, NY, where every single item under By Delaine’s tin ceiling is “Made in the U.S.A.” And why not – “there is so much happening now that is really bringing people to Main Street!”

creative gifting By Delaine Story and Photos by Dan Hust

Kinga Scullin’s “Affinities” dolls (top left) cheerfully greet passersby, each one a handmade treasure. A range of beautiful nightlights (top right) warmly invite visitors to delve deeper into the wondrous recesses of By Delaine, their hand-painted shades made from silk, porcelain and recycled corduroy. World-renowned artist Richard Lichtenstein created each one of these necklaces (above) from American pewter inlaid with ebony. For the young and young at heart, a range of hats (right) make going out in bad weather fun again!

Indeed, Judy and Doug know many of the manufacturers and artists who create their diverse inventory of gifts, artwork, furniture, jewelry, toys, puzzles and clothing. There’s William Beilke, for example, a world-renowned painter of botanical watercolors and maker of natural, hand-woven wreaths. There’s Kinga Scullin of “Affinities,” whose dolls, stockings, purses and necklaces are some of the most striking pieces in the shop. There’s Pat Baker Smith, master carver of wood, and Donna Greenthal, whose watercolors evoke local scenes. continued on page 12

An artist who lives just a few miles from By Delaine, Pat Baker Smith, hand-paints these chickens (right) true to their breed’s colors. Or perhaps a handmade rocking horse (below) is more your cup of tea. Speaking of cups, you can have “A Cup of Gratitude” (below right) or a variety of other utterly unique designs hand-thrown by a talented husband and wife from Vermont.

“It’s a mix of consignment and purchased goods,” explains Doug, who doesn’t mind sharing the profits with these talented artisans. “We’re making a substantial contribution to their support. It’s exciting to help them achieve their dreams.” And not just their dreams, but the dreams of abused and battered women. “A percentage of everything I make is donated to RISE [Rape Intervention Services and Education],” notes Judy, whose middle name provided the store’s name. She is the quintessential “people person,” to be sure. “The lovely people and artists we 12 C AT S K I L L S

meet make it all worthwhile,” she affirms. The friendly staff they employ – Grace, Opal, Jane, Sue and Claudine – also make customers feel right at home. “We’re hosting people here,” Doug explains. “We think that’s the way people should be treated.” “I grew up in the area and look forward to the time when we can come home,” says Judy, “to enjoy the peace and beauty of Narrowsburg.” H O L I DAY 2 0 1 4

lighting the holidays’ way By Dan Hust o ahead – feel like a kid again. You’ll be powerless to stop the nostalgia from washing over you while standing on Wurtsboro, NY’s Sullivan Street! Once again, Canal Towne Emporium will be the spot to spend a holiday-season evening, as the “Dance of the Lights” literally lights up its historic exterior in twinkling musical breathlessness. At 7 p.m. every evening from November 28 through December 24, owners Gary and Lyman Holmes will have designer Michael Roosa flip the switch, triggering a computer-controlled extravaganza of lights turning on and off in time to four different holiday tunes. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” will be among them, portrayed by tens of thousands of lights (thanks to more than a mile’s worth of

G

extension cords!). “It’s a thank-you to our customers,” affirms Lyman. “It’s absolutely and totally free.” Still, it makes for a great stop on any shopping trip, as Canal Towne offers gifts for every age and a dedicated Christmas Shoppe full of festive figurines, handsome clocks that chime on the hour, and captivating holiday tableaux. You can find Canal Towne at 107 Sullivan Street, the spot it’s occupied in charming downtown Wurtsboro for nearly two centuries. Store hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Sundays. Call 845-888-2100 or visit canaltowne.com for more info. Wherever you go this holiday season, though, do stop by any night at 7 just to see the show! “Rain, shine, snow, sleet, whatever,” promises Lyman, “it goes on!”
