Still not quite sure what to make of Eataly. But was thrilled to check it out with one of my favorite Italian food writers and authorities, our good friend Michele Scicolone, who took time out from her writing to stroll through the different pavilions with me.
The “Piazza.” I’m not the first or only one to note that it’s a “Disneyland of Italian gastronomy.”
I was really impressed by the salumeria slicing and packaging.
The trouble with truffles… They’re EXPENSIVE no matter where or how you slice ’em…
The “vegetable butcher” will trim your veggies for you.
Michele is so awesome. I can’t recommend her books highly enough.
More New York Stories to come…
Rowan wasn’t too pleased: http://www.oysterguide.com/restaurants/eataly-or-deceitaly
My wife, son and I visited Eataly for breakfast two months ago…not the place to go for that.
Overall, the concept is kind of cool, but I just wasn’t won over.
more than disneyland, disneyworld
business as usual
