Eataly Preview from Chicago Magazine

ItalyOn December 4, Italian food lovers from around the Midwest can rejoice when Mario Batali’s Italian food wonder-emporium, Eataly, finally opens its doors in Chicago. At 63,000 square feet, boasting eight restaurants and a live olive tree, it will be the largest in the United States (take that, New York!).


Chicago Magazine, always up on the latest upscale food trends, has a great photo series offering a tantalizing behind-the-scenes preview. The prosciutto and cheese is enough to make us get in line right now – which apparently is not a bad idea, as the first weekend will likely be a madhouse (though queuers will get free gelato). Until then, enjoy the food porn!
