Eataly for Over 42,000 Square Feet of Italian Food & Wine


Three people told me to head to Eataly when I was in New York recently and despite the umpteen times I’ve been there, I had never hung out there. It is the largest artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in the world at 42,500 square feet.

Located in the heart of the Flatiron District, Eataly is a collaboration between Mario Batali, Joe and Lidia Bastianisch and Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti. 

Eataly has seven eateries offering pizza, pasta, meat, fish, vegetables, panini, gelato, pastries and coffee, plus a newly-opened rooftop beer garden, Birreria.

The market sells the same quality products used by the chefs: cured meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables, meat and fish, handmade pasta, pasties, coffee and tea as well as dried pastas, sauces and olive oil.

They even have a cooking school, bookstore and housewares section making you feel like you’re meandering through Italy not New York’s Flatiron District. 

From pastas, breads and spreads to olive oils and wine, you can find it. They also have a host of restaurants, which use products from their market, including meat, salumi, cheese, fish, vegetables and fruit.

Restaurants are vast in the network including La Piazza, Il Pesce, Le Verdure, Manzo, I Panini, Rosticceria, Birreria, La Pizza & Pasta, Pasticceria, Gelateria, Caffe Lavazza, Vergnano, and more as well as great coffee and chocolate specialties.
