A First Look at Eataly


Eataly will finally open its massive, massive doors next Tuesday, August 31. In the meantime, Eater has a slideshow of the Italian grocery store/temple/sensory experience/gastronomic amusement park. Mario Batali has declared that “food is more sacred than commerce” at Eataly, but somehow, looking at all of the photos of high-end dry goods and pristine produce, we’re guessing that cash will be welcomed with open arms and open registers at the 50,000-square-foot complex.
