Eataly Boston – A Sneak Peek

It feels like a little bit of a dream and a bit of a whirlwind. Right before we left for Ireland (like four hours before we boarded the plane) I had the amazing opportunity of getting a sneak peek of Eataly Boston, which opens this week! Due to a late start and my hard stop to leave for the airport, I didn’t even get to tour all of Eataly, but everything I saw was simply incredible from start to finish.

I think I love Eataly Boston even more than I loved my first Eataly experience in New York City,  and I still have so much to see and taste and enjoy!

Eataly Boston, from the very first glance, is simply gorgeous, clean, fresh, and European-chic. I entered via Boylston Street and was like a kid on Christmas morning as we awaited our tour.

Chef Mario Batali, in his signature orange Crocs,  welcomed all of the media in attendance, and then led half of the group in the tour.

Eataly is designed to be like an Italian town center, with all of the little shops and restaurants you need to eat, shop, and learn. Chef Batali noted that it’s a place where you can pick up a coffee in the morning, grab lunch later in the day, and stock up on ingredients for dinner and entertaining at home later.

I love the concept of going from specialty store to specialty store – when we are in Europe we employ this practice, visiting quality butchers, cheese shops, etc. for everything we need for a memorable meal, and Eataly will make this all possible in one place. From beautiful produce to crepes, a huge cheese counter to award-winning pizza to a gorgeous wine store and so much more, Eataly will blow you away with its offerings. For full information, visit the Eataly Boston website.

With winter coming to Boston sooner rather than later, Eataly will feel like a mini getaway to Italy without having to dig into our wallets for the airfare, and it will be a most delicious place to come in out of the cold.

As I mentioned earlier, I couldn’t stay for much of the tour, but I raced through and grabbed as many photos as I could before I left. Feast your eyes on the beauty that is Eataly Boston in the below photos. . . but be sure to pay this new Boston gem a visit as soon as you can!

    Everything looks so good! My boss is taking me for lunch this Friday; I hope it’s not incredibly packed! Although I’m sure it’s going to be a huge hit for everyone in the Prudential Center area. :-)

    I was so upset to miss the preview event. Glad you could squeeze it in before jetting off! I can’t wait to go and get lost in all the delicious options.
