Flatiron News: Happy Birthday Eataly!
Here’s a bit of Flatiron Lunch news before we lay this week’s review on you…
Eataly is celebrating is 3rd Birthday. (Has it really been only 3 years? Crazy. Seems like it has been around much longer.) To celebrate, they are having a tasting party. Individual tasting tickets are $4 each and can be bought today at the 23rd Street entrance. It is unclear how much you will be able to eat for $4, since most of the substantial dishes are 2-4 tickets. But if you are willing to spend a little more to reward yourself for getting through this 4-day work week, I am sure it will be tasty. Still, some of the 1 ticket dishes have potential: olive oil-preserved tuna crostini, fried chickpeas, oyster bar and chocolate foundation with chocolate dips. And can someone please spend the $12 (3 tickets) to try the whole roasted pork shoulder? Pretty please!
While you are at Eataly, there is another Birthday deal to be had – products marked down to $3. Don’t get too distracted by the can of tomatoes (formerly $3.80) and head straight to the Torrone Martino chocolate hazelnut gianduja truffles or the Babbi hazelnut spread both market down from $7.80. At least that would be my strategy. More chocolate hazelnut products, less tomato sauce.
Eataly, 200 5th Avenue at 23rd Street, (212) 229-2560
