EATALY

I don’t even….I can’t….I have no idea what to even say about this place.

It was like an amusement park for food lovers. Except instead of those overpriced 12 dollar churros at Disneyland, it’s a 24 dollar small wedge of cheese.

I have been hearing amazing things from everyone I know about this place, and it STILL did not do it justice…

If you’re in NYC…just go. I don’t know what else to say. You don’t have to buy things to have fun. But you should probably agree to the glass of wine as you shop…

in the bag? that would be a dog butt.

white wine makes me feel nauseous. this did not stop me from accepting.

a little confused about this cart situation. everything in the place was so beautiful and modern yet rustic and just…went. This? this ugliness made no sense to me. Although it’s one-handed turning ability (wine glass) was impeccable!
