In today’s edition of ways New York is taking over Miami, we have some very exciting news to share with you: We’re getting an Eataly!
The Italian mega market, which first opened in NYC’s Flatiron neighborhood before expanding to cities across the U.S. and all over the world, is opening its first Florida location, reports the Miami New Times.
According to the website, which scooped the news on The Paul Castronovo Show that aired yesterday, partner Joe Bastianich confirmed: “he would be bringing Eataly to [Miami].” He didn't provide additional information, including where or when it would open, only to leave us hanging with, "I can't say yet, but it's coming." Bastianich did share he’s planning to open an outpost of his award-winning Los Angeles restaurant Osteria Mozza in Miami, but wouldn’t say when.
Update, 6/17: A representative for Eataly offered additional context about the recent announcement: "Eataly is currently expanding and just opened Eataly Silicon Valley. The team loves Miami and they're actively looking at potential locations there, as well as in other areas. However, a lease has not been signed and they don't have any additional openings or locations to announce at this time."
