Thanks to Mario Batali, you can experience Italian cuisine when visiting New York City!
Not too improbable, huh? You will undoubtedly need a map (and possibly even a gastronomical guide) to plan your culinary route at the celebrity chef's new Italian mega-food emporium, Eataly , ideally situated near Chelsea in the Flatiron District next to Madison Square Park.
There are numerous ways to enjoy a trip to Eataly, with its six wonderful restaurants, three delicious pastry shops, and two espresso bars—not to mention the market filled with artisanal cheese, fresh seafood, and handmade pasta.
Additionally, you can arrange the ideal pan-Italian day or night in New York by combining your sightseeing with a trip to one of the many locations that honor everything about Italy.
There is a subway, and 23rd Street is where the N and R train exits. However, if you want to make a day of it, you may organize a thorough trip to Italy and New York.
It is simple to book a layover at Eataly if you already have a bus tour of NYC planned that allows for hop-on hop-off routes
Get out at the Flatiron District stop on the CitySights NY Tours, Fifth Avenue, and 22nd Street - on the same block as Eataly! Take in this beautiful area of Midtown Manhattan while enjoying a delicious meal and a craft beer at the rooftop Birreria.
One day isn't long enough to sample all of the exquisite Italian cuisine packed at Eataly, so Gray Line offers the 48-hour All Loops Tour.
This all-encompassing tour of New York City's attractions includes a stop in the Flatiron District and can take you there for lunch or breakfast (we recommend going when you're hungry because you won't want to leave Eataly without trying as much as you can).
Steaming coffee and olive oil cornetto from Caffe Lavazza is a great way to start a day of sightseeing (located near the Fifth Avenue entrance of Eataly).
You should purchase one for yourself because sharing this delicious pastry filled with apricot, chocolate hazelnut, and cream will be difficult.
You may whet your appetite for all things Italian by enjoying the brilliant portraiture by the nation's greatest Renaissance painters if you get off the bus at the Metropolitan Museum of Art first.
After you're finished at the museum, swing by Eataly for a sandwich. Rosticceria has a one-stop butcher shop and lunch counter where you can get your fill.
If hot sandwiches are more your speed, Panini is the place for you with its premium ingredients like mozzarella di bufala from Campania and prosciutto di Parma from Emilia Romagna.
Or, if you choose to get off at the Brooklyn Museum, a permanent e xhibition on the nation's greatest designers from the Post-World War II era honors Italy's greatest designers.
This exhibit features cutting-edge mid-century modern works by Osvaldo Borsani and ultra-modern home goods like an "Octopus" coat hanger by Lomazzi de Pas.
The Brooklyn Museum's 20th-Century Decorative Arts wing, located on the fourth floor, features all these things.
At Le Verdure, meanwhile, the emphasis is on local, fresh vegetables, with 13 daily dishes drawn from the best earthy ingredients available at the time.
The highlight for meat enthusiasts is Manzo, Eataly's formal dining establishment, where they can enjoy both traditional Piedmontese beef dishes and modern Italian interpretations of their favorite cuts of meat.

The menu at Manzo is a masterclass in marrying the best ingredients for superior flavor, from Veal Chops to Hudson Valley Duck Ragu. However, if you need to explore the sights quickly, Gelateria offers quick gelato.
If romance is on your mind after a day of being inspired by Italy, what better way to celebrate love than with chocolates?
And for guests who want to go above and above for their special someone, we advise combining a romantic Broadway production of Once: The Musical or Ghost with a delicious taste of the superb handmade chocolates from Italian chocolatiers Novi, Venchi, and Baratti & Milano in the Marketplace.
The greatest cacao from across the world is used to make confections by some of Italy's most esteemed chocolatiers, who also use perfected formulas with a 150-year history.
We want you to pick just one chocolate bar or pastry created by Luca Montersino. You'll be itching for more as soon as you finish the first.
Whatever you decide to appreciate about Eataly, we're sure you'll be thinking about your next trip before you ever leave!
