Eataly is nothing short of epic, a giant Slow Food mecca of all things Italy. At its core, it's a fancy Italian grocery store with individual retail departments offering the best of everything (pastry, bread, a butcher, a fishmonger, pasta, cured meats, cheese, hand-made mozzarella, etc.), some of which are directly connected to their own sit-down restaurants. And then: Gelato, a coffee bar, panini, pizza, a wine store, a bookstore, housewares, a cooking school by Lidia Bastianich.
