Eataly

Behind the curve here, but we finally ate at Eataly. We arrived with a ravenous appetite after a long walk and Mr.Batali delivered again. Eataly is pricey, however the food is fresh, tasty and well presented. I like an open kitchen and seeing my food being prepared and the Cararra marble bar felt nice and looked pretty.
My Italian husband confirmed that the food & presentation was true to Italian tradition. The 2007 Valle Reale Montepulciano we drank with our meal was also nice: smooth and full bodied.
So if you want to treat yourself, get some inspiration or you have the pockets to eat at Eataly, go for it! Mangia!
