New York has always had a love affair with Italian food. It’s about to become BIG love. Thanks to Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, a new 37,000 square-foot Flatiron District mecca of Italian delicacies – Eataly – opens on August 30.
With Eataly, Mario and Joe have created 20 food departments, restaurants, bars, gourmet grocers and butchers. Not just a dinner venue, Eataly will offer numerous options for breakfast and lunch – not to mention enough Olive oil sampling to make even Vito Corleone jealous!
