Ginormous Italian food market Eataly has confirmed it will finally launch its long-awaited first UK site next Thursday (29 April). Located in the largely pedestrianised City neighbourhood of Broadgate, next to Liverpool Street station, Eataly London will first open the market and retail area, take-away eateries and brand-new Alfresco dining concept, La Terrazza di Eataly. La Terrazza will offer an exclusive Italian menu of sharing dishes and host an Aperol Spritzeria, offering cocktails, wine, beer and a touch of la dolce vita to the city.
The Eataly London market will offer over 5,000 quality Italian and local food products, including fresh produce from the butcher, fishmonger and cured meat and cheese counters, with an online shop and delivery service available. It will also be home to London’s biggest Italian wine cellar, offering more than 2,000 wine labels, plus a dedicated Via del Dolce (Sweet Spot) with freshly baked Italian cakes, pastry, cannoli and handmade gelato. While waiting for the green light on indoor hospitality, Eataly London’s ground floor will offer take-away options such as Roman-style pizza by the slice, fresh pasta, meals to go including paninis, focaccia and salads, plus coffee, pastries and a gelato bar.
