What exactly is Eataly? Think of a gourmet food store (on the scale of something like Julius Meinl in Vienna) multi-leveled and stocked with gourmet goodies. While Eataly does focus on Italian food, its fresh produce is predominantly American. I reveled in all these distractions, but still managed to make it to Il Pesce with my appetite intact. I ordered the crudo trio (a taste of fluke, halibut and yellowtail) as well as the chef’s selection of grilled shrimp and lobster. Lunch was such a glorious treat: two glasses of wine, all that delicious seafood, and the wonderful company of other enthusiastic food lovers at the bar.
