I finally made it to the Nutella bar at Eataly, the fantastic market place located close to the Flatiron. And I did not regret it! If you are a Nutella lover, this place is for you and, for sure, you will not know what to get, the choices all looking good.
I was there after lunch and so got my espresso (I am addicted to coffee). But it was not your regular espresso: it was topped with a delicious homemade whipped cream and some Nutella.
With it, I chose the bombolone, an Italian beignet that was also filled with a generous amount of Nutella (although there is never enough). It was a large beignet, well made, being not heavy and airy.

Two Incredible Reds from Andrea Scovero
I had the incredible pleasure of meeting Andrea Scovero at Eataly last month; a winemaker known for his dedication to crafting small production wines completely by hand and focusing on the nature of the land to "paint" and create.
All of his wines are lovely but I suggest Barbera D'Asti Ciapin; the late harvest grapes create bold dark fruit flavors that are incredibly lush or the Il Clown Nebbiolo; a favorite of the world's best restaurants like Copenhagen's Noma for its powerful yet elegant body and distinct floral flavor. These slightly esoteric wines are a true delight to find- Salute!
I had waited to return a couple other times to give you a more through assessment of Eataly. Fantastic place to learn, indulge, and entertain guests away from home. Each section is cleverly sectioned into different themes. Dessert tiramisu and a caffe mocha, the first time. Upon return had a plate of prosciutto and mozzarella paired with a white wine. An amazing array of wine choices span their menu... despite being packed most of the time, it maintains it's charm.
This glorious #CaesarSalad adds 18-month #GranaPadano + friulano to the standard , , , , , wine & olive oil. It's not just the flavor either: "I want it to look nice," says lidiabastianich, halting a server to adjust. She taught us about first - and still does it best. Fun, food! #GatherWithGrana

I love Eataly, the bustling Italian marketplace located across the Flatiron. The last time we ended up there was for pizza, at their restaurant La Pizza & La Pasta. We went early enough, right before they opened for service, to get a table as this place can be crazy.
I like this place: low key, you definitely go there more for the food than for the decor. Menu wise, we were more focused on the pizza than the pasta, although I eyed the linguine con vongole, my favorite. We decided to order two pizzas:
The quattro formaggi or four cheese pizza, made with mozzarella, gorgonzola, parmigiano reggiano and pecorino romano (there is no tomato sauce):
The second one was the calzone, made with ricotta, mozzarella, tomato sauce and prosciutto cotto:
The quattro formaggi was delicious, perfect for cheese lovers as they are generous with the quantity of cheese they put on top. I also loved the crust that was thin in the center and puffed up on the outside, with a nice char and crunchiness. I retrieved these characteristics with the calzone that was different from the one I am used to and was in fact my favorite. I loved the fact that they put some tomato sauce on the outside and the ricotta definitely tamed down the saltiness of the prosciutto. This is really a dish I recommend.
I should mention that, similar to the other restaurants at Eataly, they brought us some bread and olive oil at the beginning of the meal: bad idea as I could not stop eating it...

If you still need an excuse to take advantage of white truffle season, check out eatalyusa today where they're hosting #TruffleDay by selling all their urbanitruffles to take home AT COST Otherwise, I recommend getting it shaved over dishes like this delicious fazzoletti with chicken ragu from their #IlTartufo truffle pop-up restaurant
You guys there is an all vegetarian restaurant at eatalyusa! Feasting like queens with my partner in foodie crime, rossellarago. Of course, I had to try out the brussel sprout salad with pine nuts immediately, it was delicious and so were the other three dishes we ordered and the bonus cauliflower app we got by happy accident! #letfoodLIGHTyouup

Marocchino Nutella at Eataly
Eataly officially erected a full time Nutella Bar months ago with all sorts of crepes, cones and croissants just waiting to be filled with that lovely hazelnut spread. I'm a huge fan of Nutella but I hadn't indulged until this past weekend when I was craving both caffeine and chocolate. It was the perfect opportunity to try out the Marocchino; an espresso with steamed milk layered with Nutella and a sprinkle of cocoa.
This was very similar to my old favorite Piedmonte from Caffe Lavazza except with a bottom layer of rich, silky Nutella that pretty much put this over the top creating a hot espresso hazelnut shake. I may have a new favorite.
