A Truly Giant Italian Food Hall Is Coming To London In 2018
Is your preferred pasta dish ‘as much as possible’? Then we’ve got good news!
According to a report in the Evening Standard, the Italian cuisine giants Eataly could soon be opening their first UK location right here in London. [Header photo: Eataly in Munich.]
Founded in Italy, the chain has recently swept the States with stores in New York, LA and Chicago, while also expanding worldwide with halls in Moscow, Tokyo, and Munich. It’s a wonder it’s taken them so long to get to London, actually…
We’re talking pasta, cured meats, fabulous cheeses, olive oils, sauces, plus panettone, coffee, ciabatta, ravioli, gelato – and everything else you might need to cook up a tempesta at home.
You can also expect a pretty serious wine collection.
For those of you who are kitchen-averse, worry not – you’ll be able to take cooking classes in their kitchen workshops, and you can also expect a bar and restaurant serving up light, fresh meals from the in-store ingredients.
The London outpost is rumoured to be 40,000 square feet and will be situated in Bishopsgate, close to Liverpool Street station. That’s room for a lot of pasta. There’s no word on an opening date as plans are still in the early stages, but it’s thought it could open sometime in 2018.
