Even in a year when everything is different, it’s comforting to know that some things – including our love for Italian food – will never change. Yesterday we brought you news of a lovely Italian deli in Wimbledon and today it’s something on a much larger scale… the world’s largest Italian food market Eataly is (finally, after much hinting) heading to London.
If you’ve been to an Eataly before, you’ll know you can expect big things when it opens right next-door to Liverpool Street station in Broadgate in early 2021. In line with the brand’s ‘eat, shop, learn’ mantra, Eataly London will feature more than 5,000 products, three restaurants, a winery, bakery and zero-waste produce refill store. There will also be live demonstrations, tastings and a cookery school.
The Eataly team acknowledges that “London has been a key target in our global expansion plans,” and the launch marks the brand’s 43rd opening across 16 countries. Most importantly, it will create 300 jobs in the hospitality and retail sectors, at a time when both industries need positive news more than ever.
