Eataly Milan

    Eataly Milan Smeraldo


I was looking forward to my first visit to an Eataly food store. After a morning of sightseeing, I headed out to the Porta Garibaldi neighborhood where Eataly Milan Smeraldo is located. There are several restaurants spread out on three floors at this location. The pasta and pizza dining hall is on the second floor and the fish restaurant is on the third. My eyes were kept busy checking out all the products on display as I rode up the escalator. It was over the Christmas holidays and the store was bright and festive.


    Lunch

I settled for lunch on the third floor where they serve this rich combination of seafood. Glad I chose this from the menu. Everything on my plate was appetizing and fresh. And I had a sweeping view of the store from my table. Apparently they serve lunch only till 3 p.m. I was the last person to leave.

Grilled fish and cola €20.00

    Fresh produce section

After checking out the enoteca, I spent some time on the ground floor and picked up some biscotti and cookies to take home. Good thing I had very limited space for sweets in my luggage or else....

I also ate lunch at Eataly in the heart of Bologna. It's a much smaller venue though they are building a mega complex in this food capital of Italy.
