Market :: Eataly


Oh Eataly, how I love you. I fancy you so.

Where do I even begin. Eataly has so much going on its hard to even put it in perspective. Eataly has opened its doors about a month and half ago in the Flatiron District. It's an Italian Marketplace full of amazing array of vegetables, gourmet cheeses and meats, breads, pastas, restaurants, a gelataria, a wine shop, a pizzeria and more. Enter through one of the many entrances on 23rd and 24th streets. It makes Chelsea Market look like a dump, and Whole Foods a bit bland. A big collaboration including Italian chefs and restaurateurs; Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, and Joe Bastianich are the main faces behind it. I hear they offer classes as well as opening a beer garden on the roof that will have view of Madison Square Park. It could be overwhelming to some, since it is a 36,500 square foot space. For me it was like heaven and even brought a little tear to my eye. I wanted to eat, buy and try everything. I will be back to try all the individual restaurants. I bought some produce from them today and it turned into a fantastic meal (recipes to come). I hope you enjoy the photos I took and I highly recommend a visit.

Some of the many options they offer...

LA PIAZZA is a stand up food and drinks bar located in the center of the store and serves tastings of salami, cheeses, mozzarella and raw bar as well as wines by the glass and bottle and beer. It is available on a first come first served basis and all you need to do is go find a place at our standing tables and a server will bring you a menu and take your order and then bring you the food. La Piazza is open from 11am-10pm Mon-Sat and from noon-9:30 on Sundays.

IL PESCE is a seated counter and a table area that serves raw bar plus our own Dave Pasternack’s creative and traditional take on Italian seafood in antipasto and main course portions. There are specials written on the chalkboards that describe today’s catch.

LE VERDURE is a seated counter and a table area that serves Italian style vegetable dishes including soups, bruschetta and composed warm and cold dishes from the fertile mind of our own Elizabeth Benno. There are specials written on the chalkboard that describe today’s harvest.

IL PESCE and LE verdure and are available for dining Mon-Sat for lunch from 11:30-2:30 and 12-2:30 on Sunday, and for dinner every day from 5-9:30. To put your name on the list for a “first come first served” table please go to the seating point located near the book store.

LA PIZZA & LA PASTA share two seated counters and a table area that serves artisanal dried pastas as well as fresh pasta, including tagliatelle, lasagna and ravioli, with Alexandra Hast heading up the kitchen. At this location you can also have Rossopomodoro pizza imported directly from Napoli – pizzaiolas and all! Pizzas are individual 10” pies and are native to this part of Italy. Pizza/Pasta is open Mon-Sat from 11am-10pm, and on Sundays from 12pm-10pm.

MANZO is a more formal dining experience celebrating meat from the United States, where you can taste both modern Italian preparations as well as traditional piemontese beef antipasti as well as get a full meal including antipasti, pasta, a main course and plated desserts from the meat centric kitchen of our own Mike Toscano.

MANZO is open for lunch from 11:30-2:30(12pm on Sundays) and from 5:30-10 every night for dinner. To put your name on the list for a “first come first served” table please go to the seating point located across from the fish monger, in front of Manzo restaurant.
