The philosophy behind Eataly Boston is a simple one: Eat, Shop, Learn. The very first Eataly opened in Torino, Italy in 2007, with the purpose of helping people discover what they love about Italian food. Each Eataly store is formatted so that visitors can taste food, shop for ingredients in the marketplace, and learn how to recreate the recipe at home.
Eataly has since expanded to include over 30 locations in 9 different countries. Boston is next in line. Tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 p.m., Eataly’s newest location will be celebrating its grand opening at the Prudential Center.
The market will offer local food and drink in addition to Italian fare. Working with small New England farmers to receive high-quality products alongside the artisanal Italian goods that are Eataly’s trademark. As may be expected, the Boston location will have a heavy focus on seafood, including local fish and depictions of the New England fishing community. This location will include an elegant-casual seafood restaurant, Il Pesce, as well as a raw bar, Il Crudo.
Eataly Boston will include four restaurants, 10 take-away counters, 5 bars, a marketplace, and a cooking school. The creators of Eataly are making sure not to reveal too many details about the location, but for more information be sure to check out their website: eataly.com.
