It’s a market-style restaurant where there are eating stations between the product isles. The amount of stuff you can buy is endless, and everything is Italian-food related.
Olives in jars.
Different cuts of meat and fish.
Freshly made pasta. *drool*
Bottled pasta sauces from popular chefs.
Fresh bread and focaccia. Really, endless!
We ordered a cheese platter that came with 5 cheeses, come cuts of meat, fruit preserve, and fresh artisan bread. And because I knew I wouldn’t be able to remember the names of the cheeses, I took a picture of the name board. Price: USD 22++
Here you go. The fresh ricotta was amazing and unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. My favourite was the Parmiggiano Reggiano though. Amazing flavour!
After a 30-min wait, we also tried some pasta. Simple ravioli cooked up in some butter. The flavour was simple and mindblowing. Price: USD 18++
If you are ever in New York, definitely head up to Eataly. The food is not cheap but it’s fresh, authentic, simple, and delicious. You can also shop the stores for some great ingredients and cook up an Italian meal yourself too.
