Eataly, in case you haven’t heard, is a 42,000 square foot grocery emporium that’s just opened at 200 Fifth Avenue. And everything in it hails from or owes its existence to Italy from the on-premises cooking school to the rooftop beer garden. The original Eataly opened in Turin in 2007. At 50,000 square feet, the mother ship is even larger than this enormously impressive store in New York. And Turin was followed by the opening of smaller branches in Bologna and Milano and even smaller ones in two locations in Japan. The full name of the store is Eataly Alti Cibi which translates to “High Food”. But think “Specialty Foods” and you get better idea of both the selection and the price points.
