Neighborhood Buzz: Eataly Opening Today

This is going to be the most amazing Italian extravaganza ever.

I've been passing by this location for the past 7 months now and today Eataly finally opening (I heard that it will open at 4:00 pm and I think it will be madness). Mario Batali, Oscar Farinetti, Joe Bastianich and Lidia Matticchico's have teamed up to open up this tribute to Italian food which will be located in the old Toy Building 24th street and 5th Avenue.

The 50,000 sqf space will house multiple restaurants, and will both sell and serve Italian specialty foods, coffee, cheeses, veggies, fish, meats, pastries and gelato. They will even have an on-site travel agent organizing trips and wine tours to Italy, as well as a wine merchant.

Plus, all customers will also have access to their roof top beer garden with a view of MSq Park (you will be able to sit down and eat your purchased lunch there).

This place is going to be amazing. They best of all, it's just around the corner from my job!
