Oscar Farinetti and Mario Batali's massive Flatiron affair, with 40,000 square feet of space and over 10,000 products. The market brings the sort of quality produce and ingredients that would otherwise be considered expensive or hard-to-find, creating a bazaar in which even those most plebeian of New Yorkers can consume like a connoisseur. There are house-made baked goods, fresh pasta and mozzarella and more; America and Italy's best wares, from beer and coffee to sauces and seafood to books and beer; and an extensive wine shop offering the best in Italian and local wines, by the glass or by the bottle.
Eataly houses seven sit-down restaurants that all get their fresh ingredients from the adjacent marketplace, making for vibrant cuisine of uncompromising quality. There's La Piazza, the resident enoteca, decked out with marble bars and standing tables and serving up sandwiches, soup, and salad, along with fresh mozzarella and cheese and meat plates; formal dining at Manzo, with modern Italian meat dishes and traditional Piemontese cuisine; seafood at Il Pesce; exquisitely prepared dishes of fresh produce at Le Verdure; a traditional sauce joint with pizza and pasta called—what else?—La Pizza & La Pasta; lunch at Pranzo; and paninis and rotisserie at Panini and Rotisserie. There's even a traditional Italian cafe and, saints preserve us, a Nutella bar. If that's not bar enough for you, the massive rooftop Birreria is both that and a brewery, making its own unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally carbonated cask ales on the premises, all served at the perfect temperature through hand pumps!
