How are you going to turn down yeast that’s been waiting 35 years for you?

Known For

The lowdown

The second location of Eataly in New York is located on the third floor of World Trade Center Tower 4. The theme here is bread, and the food emporium leaves no carbohydrate behind. As the first Eataly to offer a comprehensive breakfast menu, it is home to Orto e Mare, where you can wake up with Maple Hill Creamery Greek yogurt, housemade granola, and Fabbri Amarena brandied cherries. At the bread bakery, everything’s baked on the premises in a wood-fired oven, and beyond the usual loaves there’s sweet and savory focaccia, plus Roman-style pizza alla pala. Eataly’s using a 35-year-old mother yeast to make “pane mediterraneo,” a special loaf with rye and whole-wheat flours and seven different grains and seeds. There’s also a fresh-juice-and-smoothie bar; a selection of pasticcini, bite-size Italian pastries with cream fillings; and made-to-order piadine. That’s not all, though: There’s a coffee bar that turns into a wine bar at night, plus a mozzarella bar for cheese freaks, and a proper Southern Italian restaurant.
