‘[Eataly is] a 50,000-square-foot, Slow Food-inspired Italian-food temple.’ – New York Magazine ‘At midday and into the evening, the Italian-food megastore is a bedlam of foreign and American tourists, office workers, and neighborhood residents crammed together in culinary obsession.’ – New York Times ‘The concept of Eataly is to bring the best of Italy and embrace the best of what’s local.’ – Joe Bastianich (co-owner of Eataly) ‘I think we need a temple. I think we need a place where food is more sacred than commerce, a place to go and be provoked and think about great food and great stuff. But I don’t want it to feel like it’s all didactic and superheady. We’re not selling a philosophy. We’re selling polenta.’ – Mario Batali ‘Eataly offers Italy by the ounce.’ – New York Times ‘A NYC riff on Northern Italian “food temples” – something to behold.’ – Vogue.com
