Eataly is an Italian shop and dine kind of market that has branches around USA (L.A., Boston, Chicago). The market has a wide selection of cheese, fresh meats, pasta, seafood, and wine. It is nice to just walk around the market and see what they have in every station. It’s like a grocery and an Italian restaurant in one which I found very interesting. They serve mouth watering food and quality products.
From Oculus, we headed to Eataly for lunch. The entrance is located at 101 Liberty Street, 3rd floor of the 4 World Trade Center. Since I heard so many good things about this place, we decided to give it a try. We ordered 3 different types of pasta dishes that are very delicious. The place has a pretty chill vibe compared to the Flatiron that makes your dining and shopping experience more pleasing. Also, if you’re the type of person who’s always not sure what to order, walking around helps because you get to see different food selections.
If you have time to spare and up for an Italian dining experience, I would definitely recommend this place.
