My wife and I learned about Eataly during a flight from Rome to Boston. We were in the city enjoying a special weekend occasion and took a taxi from our hotel to Eat Italy at 200 Fifth Avenue, NYC. We were blown away by the immense size of this complex - about 50,000 square feet of restaurants and food from every region of Italy.
OMG, the visual impact is amazing. The sights and aroma of Italian fruit, vegetables, meats,fish, cheese, pasta, and wine are incredible. They offer cook books for sale and just about anything you can think of from bella Italy/Sicily.
We ate lunch at Birreria, a brewery/restaurant on the 5th floor. What a great find! My wife and I split Apricot Pork Piatto @ $22.00 (signature dish) and a fabulous brew called Allagash Interlude FDT @ $ $9.00.
We wanted to purchase some white truffle but were told that it was past its due date and would not be fresh - probably a good idea because the cost was outrageous!
Eat Italy can also be found in Rome, Italy and will soon be built in San Francisco.
You must visit Eataly if you love Italian food ~ Most highly recommended!!! We will definitely be back when we can spend more time.
