Eataly NYC...

Eataly opened today in the Flatiron District of NYC...let la dolce vita begin. Eataly is the largest, almost 50,000 square foot artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in the world, it even has a cooking school.  After opening the first Eataly in Turin two years ago, Oscar  Farinetti turned to Mario Batali to bring the best of Italy's slow food movement to the states. Who better than Mario Batali, the king of NY Italian food to do it. Batali has described the emporium as a "temple" and the philosophy is that it " is not just a market but a food experience". No doubt you will need more than one visit to take in this food wonderland and all the restaurants each focusing on the different markets within Eataly...the only advice, go with an empty stomach.
