The first Eataly location opened its doors in Turin, Italy, in 2007. The massive Italian food market and food court was an immediate sensation and made its jump across the pond to New York City three years later—and added a Downtown location a few years after that. The Eataly name has become synonymous with high-end, fresh, and inventive Italian fare. People travel from all around the world to visit the famed market, which now has 32 locations and plans for 15 more in the future. Fortunate residents of the luxury Tribeca residences at the famed Woolworth Tower will find themselves just a short stroll from Eataly Downtown, where they can shop, participate in tastings, take classes, or just roam around and appreciate the vibrant atmosphere.
Ever wanted to dazzle your friends with authentic home-cooked Italian meals? Eataly Downtown offers a wide array of classes multiple times a week: everything from hands-on pizza and pasta making courses and wine and cheese tastings to courses that explore cuisines native to specific regions in Italy and a kid’s kitchen that provides a wonderful introduction to the world of Italian cooking. The classes, which are part of their “Foodiversità,” are an hour and a half long and are taught by experts in the field. And they aren’t stuffy, rigid experiences; they’re as fun as they are educational, and they encourage participants to “play with [their] food.” The classes do fill up rather quickly, so be sure to sign up in advance. If you’re looking for something a bit different for a night out or just want to improve or hone your skills, visit their schedule page and find the ideal class for you.
Moving on to the market itself, when it comes to Italian food, it doesn’t get any better than this. If you’re looking for fresh pasta, or pizza dough, or homemade sauce, or fresh tomatoes, or spices, or the perfect collection of olives, or Italian wine, or craft beer, or an elegant and decadent dessert, you’ll find myriad options here. It is truly a wonderland of Italian foods. They even have a sizeable homeware section where you can grab some premium cooking tools. After you’ve bought some pasta here, you won’t want to shop anywhere else.
So, once you’ve become a skilled home chef by attending some Eataly courses, you can walk over to their market, pick up the best ingredients in the city, head back, and cook up a spectacular meal from your perch in The Woolworth Tower Residences, gazing out over the shimmering cityscape. It’s like having a friendly and delicious bit of Italy right in Tribeca.
