While exploring the financial district, my sister and I went to lunch at Eataly. Eataly is a wonderful Italian market, founded by Oscar Farinetti, filled with fine meats, cheeses, and other delicacies.
First, we took a loop around the market place to see what we were inspired by. Then, we went back to each item we had "bookmarked" and knew we were in for a special treat.
We started with the Pasta Fredda with Sweet Pork Sausage, Pecorino, Broccoli Rabe, Pine Nuts, and Olive Oil.
Following, we split a Panino Prosciutto Crudo with fresh Mozzarella.
As a side we had a small bowl of fresh pineapple that was to die for. And lastly, we treated ourselves to a crepé at the Nutella bar where we were sitting.
I would definitely recommend making Eataly a destination on your New York itinerary, as it was the perfect start to an afternoon of exploring the city!
