EATALY NEW YORK: “IT IS NOT JUST A MARKET, BUT A FOOD EXPERIENCE”

Eataly

"Food is more sacred than commerce." With these words Mario Batali, the Italian- American celebrity chef introduced Eataly New York, the huge imported Italian Food hall (50.000 square feet). Eataly is a concept developed by the ebullient entrepreneur Oscar Farinetti with the blessing of Slow Food. The first one was opened and is still developing in Torino, Italy. Its Big Apple version required an investment of US 25 millions and has partners that include Batali, Joe Bastianich and his mother, TV celebrity chef Lidia Matticchio Bastianich.

Eataly is combination of fancy Italian grocery stores with individual retail departments offering the best and the most typical of Italian made food and wine products: pastry by Luca Montersino, bread, a butcher, a fishmonger (David Pasternack), pasta, cured meats, cheese, hand-made mozzarella (Il Laboratorio), some of which are directly connected to their own sit-down restaurants with waiter service.

There´s also a gelato shop, a coffee bar, and places selling panini and pizza (from the Napoli originated franchising Rossopomodoro), a wine store (and soon a rooftop beer garden – la Birreria), a bookstore and a warehouse showroom. Lidia Bastianich has her cooking school (La Scuola) as well.
