Time Out says

When you think Italian food in NYC, it's usually a toss-up between a $1 slice around the corner or a lavish birthday dinner at Il Cantinori. But what about the vast array of street foods on the Italian stradone: Like polpette, or braised brisket meatballs; suppli, deep-fried carnaroli rice and beyond. Eataly's World Trade Center hub has arrived to relieve your local anxieties. They're serving up a street-meat fantasy with this two-hour, unlimited tasting night featuring silverware-free dishes straight off the carrettino. You'll be able to indulge in more than ten food dishes and twenty drinks, including sparkling, white and red wines, craft beers like Dogfish Head and cocktails like the Montenegro Mule. You'll have to pace yourself to work through chickpea Farinata pancakes, roasted pork loin porchetta panini and fresh focaccia bread. Two hours isn't much time to cover Italy's extensive street food catalogue, but we think you have what it takes to slay this challenge.
