Hi Italyville readers… sorry for the extended absence but as I’m sure many of you can relate – life sometimes just gets in the way! I’m hoping and planning on posting more often.
I wanted to share my recent New York City “Eataly” experience with you. Eataly is a high-end Italian Specialty store started by Oscar Farinetti who partnered with Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich and Joe Bastianich to bring it to NYC a few years ago. The best way to describe it in my opinion is an Italian themed Whole Foods. It may be a little pricey but for me it was a great experience because we have a hard time finding some of their quality items in my area. I could spend the day looking at all the products and eating at the various shops/areas within Eataly…. so I did.
Next time you find yourself in NYC, stop in and check it out… would love to hear what you think of Eataly.
