Eataly

Eataly, why had I never heard of this before.  The largest Italian Marketplace in the WORLD! They opened the first location in Turin in 2007 and have since grown like crazy, opening locations in New York, Japan, Chicago, Milan, and more. Each Eataly is comprised of a variety of restaurants, food and beverage counters, a bakery, retail items, and even a cooking school.

We stumbled upon this one in New York and then we found one in Munich too! See photos below.

They had this awesome pop up holiday rooftop bar called Baita by Birrera. From the Eataly website: “High above the slopes of Fifth Avenue, BAITA offers a warm retreat for anyone trekking about New York City. We might have replaced the stone slab and nearby hills of grazing sheep with a retractable glass roof and views of the neighboring Flatiron building, but BAITA’S food and drink will make you feel like you’re in the Italian Alps, right in the middle of Manhattan.”

And it did! We drank amazing cask ales brewed in house while snacking on delicious cheeses and a warm hearty meal of beer braised pork shoulder with an apricot glaze and Atlantic Cod with spinach and whipped potatoes. Yum!

Then there was the Munich one, which Adam found and surprised me with.  He knows how to make me happy, pretty food all around me, it’s like heaven.

When you go to the one in Munich, make sure to stop by Cafe Frischhut right across the street and get some delicious pastries with names that are very hard to pronounce.

I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes of the trip by Adam, “Ah man, your rohrnudel just creamed all over my schmalznudel!”
