If you don't already know it, EATALY is an incredible high-end market/grocery store that sells all the best Italian foods: coffees, cheeses, meats, wines, chocolates, pastries etc etc. It's the perfect place to buy supplies for a picnic.
Which is exactly what we did this past Saturday.
The only problem was that we weren't the only ones with this idea.
Eataly, amazing as it was, was CRAZY busy! I do not recommend going there on a Saturday at noon, on Memorial Day weekend... what a zoo!
Nonetheless, I was very impressed, and everything we sampled tasted phenomenally good.
It was so hot in NYC this weekend, everyone was out picnicking and sunbathing. It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon in the city.
oh and the gelato at Eataly was AMAZING too!
