The largest artisanal food and wine market in the world, Eataly is a beautiful spot in the heart of Flatiron brought to us by world-renowned restaurateurs Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. A must-see for anyone visiting New York, and a must-shop for anyone living in New York, Eataly is the kind of food mecca we could live in.

“I love anything Mario Batali cooks.” – Richard Blais (Winner, Top Chef)

“Mario is one of the top five chefs probably in the world.” – Michael Symon (Chef, Iron Chef America)

“Ten years ago, no one knew what a quartino was. Ever since Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali started that, now all modern Italian restaurants do it.” – Adam Rapoport (Editor-in-Chief, Bon Appetit)
