Grazie to our friend Jessica Young, talented NYC private chef for beating us to the newly launched Eataly, at 200 Fifth Ave, in Manhattan. You can catch her tour on her blog Vittle Me This.
A co-production of the Italian Eataly stores, affiliated with Slow Food, and the Mario Batali organization, the emporium houses a grocery with artisanal ingredients, fresh and cured meats, and fresh foods as well as several restaurants.
Jessica, we loved your description of Romanesco as cauliflower that had sex with a Christmas tree!
Ci vediamo all’ Eataly!
