Travel To Relax – Travel Guide to Eataly Downtown
Hey guys, salut ! This is Alex. So today I’m sharing – or should I say tonight – I am sharing a special moment of my New York City Flog. It’s the review of downtown Eataly. So, Eataly is an italian market place.
There are two places like this in New York I think : one in mid Manhattan and one in downtown (the one I went to) But also, there are many in the world like for example Korea, Japan, Turkey, umhhhh …. Many in Eataly but NONE in France ! There might be a business opportunity there … But I hardly see myself, The French Guy Cooking, launching Eataly in Paris. Nah ? Anyway.
Let’s GO ! You just saw it, they have an amazing selection of cheeses and fruits and vegetables, but I was personnaly very impressed by their selection of pasta. SO MANY PASTA ! Like, IT’S CRAZY ! And … OLIVE OIL ! Of course, olive oil ! Olive oil ! Olive oil ! Olive oil ! Oh my GOSH ! I’ve never see that much olive oil ! So also you don’t have to buy only from the shelves, you can also buy from the counters. There are several counters like pasta, panini and sandwiches or pastries.
So you can buy lots of food in Eataly, that’s a fact 🙂 But you can also eat lots of good food there. There are many restaurants like for example the seafood restaurant, the vegetarian restaurant … There is a special dinning restaurant, there’s a great pizzeria at Eataly. Like really ! I’m a geek when it comes to pizza …
And I saw theirs and they are SUPER LEGIT ! So YES, at the end I couldn’t resist the urge to just sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine and a ball of fresh housemade mozarella ! I really like the atmosphere, the ambiance of sitting at the counter, watching the cooks do their stuff. The wine was very good. Pricy. Bu still very good.
The mozarella was fresh, soft ..Uhm, not very strong in terms of flavor, but very FRESH ! So, at the end of the day 3 questions. FIRST : Sould you go there ? I would say, ABSOLUTELY ! It’s a one of a kind experience, it’s beautiful so go there anytime ! SECOND : Should you buy stuff there ? Yes absolutely ! However … (There is a however) I would focus on the premium stuff. Not especially the most expensive stuff but the most uncommon stuff.
The thing you could hardly find somewhere else. Like for example the really specific pasta, or the very intricate olive oils. Third an final question : Sould you EAT there ? Umh, it’s a bit more tricky this one. It really depends of what you think about the place.
So, at the end, I think it’s a very enjoyable experience. A bit pricey but the price is only legitimate considering its scenery, its location, and the access you have to all those premium produces. So guys, that’s it ! I hope you enjoyed this tour of EATALY. If you did, then give it a thumb UP ! And share thare on you social media.
