Popular NYC Italian Food Destination Poised to Go Global

Italian dining and shopping destination Eataly has become a must-see for New York tourists and locals alike. Speaking at an event held last night at New York’s La Scuola Grande, Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti announced that the brand is ready to expand not only within New York City but also across the country. There are two new Eataly locations planned for Manhattan—one uptown and one rumored to be down at the World Trade Center—plus new Eataly locations are planned for Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. Eataly’s American expansion partners, Joe Bastianich, Lidia Bastianich, and Mario Batali, said that nothing was set in stone with regard to locations, but that’s doing nothing to contain our excitement! Farinetti also hinted that the brand would go global in 2015, with its first South American store, followed by expansion to Moscow and London.
