Shop Girl: Eataly NYC

A couple of weeks ago I was waiting at a traffic light in Manhattan and saw a massive line of people waiting to get into a store. I had never heard anything about it and merely saw a sign that said gelato. It was hot that day in the city, but not hot enough to warrant a line wrapping around the block. It was craziness.

The next day I'm online and I realize it was the opening day of Eataly a new indoor take on the Italian marketplace. One of the owners is none other than Mario Batali hence the crazy line.

I haven't made it back to check it out for myself, but I'm totally intrigued.

I found some images of the store online and had to share them with all.

Imagine having a pantry like this at home:



Like a real street corner in Italy there is signage to show you the way:



I know want to empty out my fridge and fill it with baskets to house fresh veggies:



I love carbs so I will have to go check out this bread station in person:



After I'm done stuffing myself with bread I think I would balance the calories with a piece of fruit!



I love good store display and this place does not disappoint. I can totally see myself overpaying for a loaf of bread or some fancy cheese.

Yum! Have any NY readers checked it out yet?

*Apparently Martha and me were thinking the same thing today. Totally happens when you are so close to someone ;) and her show today was about Eataly as well! Check out some video footage here. Thanks for the heads up Janna!

Wow! That definitely looks like a store I would have trouble keeping my cart empty at. Displaying food like that makes me want to take it all home. Let us know what it's like when you go!

I just saw this place featured on Martha Stewart today. Pretty cool.

Read about this on Tory Burch's blog. Can't wait to go but I think the lines are still out the door. Thanks for a great post/photos!

I am seriously jealous! This is unbelievable. The closet thing we have to that is Fresh market, which I adore.
Have a nice day!

I was just watching Martha Stewart and she featured Eataly on her show... my mouth was watering during the whole segment... Must got to that place when I'm in NY.
