Shannon and I had an amazing lunch at Eataly. The food here is so amazing, I salivate just thinking about it. We ended up at the pasta restaurant and had dream-like Italian delights. It was worth the long walk we endured in a super humid NYC afternoon.
One of the best Caprese salads I’ve ever tasted. These little heirloom tomatoes tasted like a ray of Tuscan sunshine.
I came out of meat retirement to have a few pieces of prosciutto and salami from Salumi Misti … and it was worth it.
I was a bit disappointed that my favorite spaghetti dish was not on the menu. We were told that the pasta machine was broken, and they were very limited in pasta dishes. Paparadelli was still very delicious but I would have loved to revisit the amazing pasta dish that I had on my last visit to Eataly.
Here’s Shannon’s Fru Fru, special oval-shaped 3-season pizza of ricotta cheese and ham; mozzarella and tomato sauce, and parma ham, arugula and Parmigiano Reggiano shavings. She didn’t get her pizza until I was almost done with my pasta dish so by the time she got her meal, she was already full. That was a bummer … but the pizza was pretty amazing.
This Ginger Ale was CRAZY good!
And of course, Gelato to top off the amazing dining experience! I can’t wait for this place to open up in Los Angeles!
