Ok, I'm obsessed with gelatin. Pistachio gelato. After getting hooked on a trip to Tuscany several years ago with Millie and David McCoy, I was hooked. So whether Shanghai or London or Brooklyn, I check out the gelato.
In New York I thought I found the best pistachio gelatin at St. Ambroeus on Madison Ave. But then Eataly came to town. I'm a goner. Good thing it is down on 23rd street so I have to make a trek to get there.
In fact Eataly is worth talking about even if there were no gelato. It's the 50,000 square foot adventure devoted to all things Italian and related to food. Seven restaurants, vegetable stands, cheeses, wines, pasta,pizza, chocolate, grilled meets, breads...and the place us designed to Foster conversation. Whether with friends or total strangers Eataly elicits responses...gasps, laughs, chat.
Worth a trip to new York. And guaranteed to make you tell everyone you know. Best mouth to mouth ever. I swear I've personally told dozens of new yorkers...and they all are compelled to tell me and everyone else what a great time Eataly is.
