If there’s one place you can call foodie heaven, it’s Eataly New York Flatiron. It was my first time visiting, and I did not want to leave. This place is huge, and has everything you want under one roof. Speaking of roof, we enjoyed a delicious dinner on the rooftop Sabbia.

Eataly is a bustling Italian marketplace featuring quality products from Italy’s many regions, alongside artisan creations from local producers. Guests are invited to “Eat, Shop, and Learn” about Italian culture and cuisine through the market, restaurants, cafeìs, guided tours, live demos, and classes.
Founded by Oscar Farinetti, Eataly opened its first location in Torino, Italy in 2007. Three years later, his son, Eataly U.S.A. CEO Nicola Farinetti brought the concept to the U.S. opening a flagship store in New York’s Flatiron neighborhood. With the help of their partners, Joe Bastianich, Lidia Bastianich, Mario Batali, Adam Saper, and Alex Saper, Eataly’s U.S. presence has grown to include a Chicago location, a second New York location in Lower Manhattan, and a Boston location.
At Eataly, the saying goes, “We cook what we sell, and we sell what we cook.” The unique format of the store invites guests to taste authentic dishes in the restaurants, find the same ingredients in the marketplace, and then discover how to recreate the recipes at home. Dining options at Eataly range from breakfast to lunch, dinner and dessert, including casual take-away choices as well as more refined sit-down experiences. Skilled artisans are at Eataly 24 hours a day making fresh bread, mozzarella, pasta, gelato, and more, for Eataly’s restaurants and retail
