Eataly Florence

As I mentioned in my last post, I love revisiting my favorite places as soon as I arrive in Italy. But I also love discovering whats new since my last visit since, despite my best efforts, life in Florence doesn't cease when I leave.

Eataly is the latest edition to the Florence food scene. It's like an Italian Dean and Deluca. Kirsten my assistant (yes, I have an assistant... I feel so important lol) and I visited the other day for lunch and we were not disappointed. Not only do they have a fancy selection of Italian specialty foods, coffee bar, bakery, and an excellent selection of gourmet pre-prepared meals, they also have a fabulous terrace restaurant that serves Tuscan specialties. We split the crostini Toscana and the papa al pomodoro. I did not tell Kirsten what the crostini Toscana were until she ate them all. Once she proclaimed they were delicious, I informed her that the bit on top was puréed chicken livers, a Tuscan specialty. Trust me it's delicious (FYI she is not mad at me)!

Kirsten, still smiling after the crostini Toscana (aka chicken livers)!

Besides the delicious food, the ambiance and the design of the space were the perfect mix of modern and classical Italian. My personal favorite was the espresso cup chandelier (above).

Fun fact - there are ten Eataly locations in Italy, thirteen in Japan, two in the U.S. (New York and Chicago), one in Turkey and one in Dubai.

Buon appetito!

  1. I bet the food in Italy is amazing! Now I might have to find an Eataly in NY!

  2. Looks like a lot of fun! Maybe I can get a chance to visit the one in NYC.
