The famed mega-marketplace specializing in artisanal Italian food and wine, known as EATALY, has opened its doors and fired up its ovens in LM. With the success of their midtown location, Team Eataly has branched southward to Lower Manhattan’s 4 World Trade Center.
Superstar chefs Mario Batali and Lidia and Joe Bastianich have funneled their talents into Eataly Downtown, making it an inviting Italian souk with food counters, production labs, casual and fine dining restaurants, cooking classrooms, wine and juice bars, coffee spots and over 10,000 retail products. The emphasis is on bread, high-quality produce and Italian cuisine.
Osteria della Pace is Eataly Downtown’s new restaurant that features succulent dishes, from cavatelli with spicy octopus and tomatoes to grilled squid with panzanella and vegetables. If that is too much culture-on-a-plate for you, the more casual eatery Orto e Mare serves breakfast — a first for Eataly!
Ready-to-eat deliveries, private events, VIP behind-the-scenes tours, customized gift boxes and more are also available. Fresh goods, elegant wining and dining and ethnic Italian food can be enjoyed every day from 7 A.M. to 11 P.M. For more info, click here.
