Eataly Boston

If you haven’t heard the hype about Eataly yet…where have you been?! Since its grand opening in the Prudential Center in late November, this 3-story, 45,000 square foot Italian paradise has been the talk of the town. Eataly is your one-stop-shop for all things Italian food, with a retail marketplace, multiple dining options, cooking classes and grab-and-go.

Eataly was started in Turin, Italy by Oscar Farinetti and has since been modeled in Chicago, New York and now Boston. Here are a few highlights from the newest location!


Il Pesce

Eataly Boston (not surprisingly) has a strong focus on seafood and aims to bring some of the freshest fish around to your dinner table. Il Pesce, directed by Barbara Lynch, doesn’t have a regular menu – whatever is that day’s catch will be served.

Cannoli Cart

Eataly’s first ever custom-made cannoli cart is in Boston. If the line isn’t too long, get a fresh cannoli filled to order by pedal power. For those of you who have tried it already, which is better: Eataly or Mike’s Pastry?

Wine Store

Eataly features an all-encompassing repertoire of wine, with more than 1,000 Italian labels. If you feel like splurging on something other than Trader Joe’s $2 bottles, make sure to stop by the Reserva Room that showcases wines from as early as the 1960s.

For NU Bucket List #46, explore everything that this franchise has to offer. From crepes to pizza and gelato to pasta, Eataly Boston is on our list of must-do’s before you graduate! Just make sure to get there early to avoid the lines.
