Foodies both local and international have been flocking to the Flatiron District’s mega Italian emporium Eataly since it opened its doors in 2010. Gourmand pilgrims now have another delicious destination: Eataly NYC Downtown, which opened its doors mid-August. You’ll find many familiar Eataly features — some unique to this location — as well as five restaurants, nine take-away counters, two cafes, and one wine bar. Click through for our family-friendly guide to this sure to be hoppin’ hotspot!

Shop & Chop

You know when you get veggies at the store, they cost a lot more if you buy them pre-cut? Sure, it saves time so you deal with the extra cost, but not here. At Eataly Downtown, there is a Vegetable Butcher — so any vegetables you want to buy, you bring to them, and they’ll peel and chop at no extra cost. Ready to saute and serve, just great for the family looking to save time when making dinner (i.e., everyone).
