Eataly: How to take a day trip to Italy

I recently found myself in NYC with a little time to kill and no particular plans -- 'til I got a tip from John Carter (from SHIFT Communications). Seems I was just steps away from "Eataly" a 50,000-square-foot gourmet paradise on Fifth Ave between 23rd and 24th. Count me in!

EatalyEataly is the creation of some of NYC's top foodies -- Mario Batali, of Food Network fame, Joe Bastianich, and Joe's mother, Lidia Matticchio Bastianich (considered the "Nonie" of  New York's Italian cuisine). My plan was simple: to feast my eyes and eat myself into oblivion. Oh, and grab some snapshots to share the experience with you, of course.

to tiramisu -- everything you could possibly crave is here.

Of course, being a dutiful Grommet-hunter, I even scouted the scene for undiscovered new products from hip Italian designers.

Even if you're not the teeniest bit hungry, Eataly is a colorful adventure and feast for all five senses (wait, is it six now?). Either way, if you do make it there ...

... stop back here and let us know what you discover at Eataly next time you're in the city. Mangia!

    Jeanne, I can't believe you found the Italian brand Guzzini in Eataly. I used to buy their stuff when I lived in Dublin. I have looked for it in the US, and I gave up. Score! They are superb at clever plastics for the kitchen, as you discovered.
