Eataly. Croissant, stuffed with Prosciutto.

DO TRY THIS AT HOME: A croissant, stuffed with layers and layers of thin prosciutto. 

I was doing a job recently close to Eataly. (The giant, 50,000 sq. foot Italian Food Hall in the Flat Iron district). My morning ritual was a delicious Latte Macchiato, and a croissant, stuffed with mounds of thinly sliced Prosciutto di Parma. The croissants; crackly golden are made in-house, fresh daily.

I’m always a little confused as to why real Italians (who’ve come all the way from incredible, real, Italy) would queue up for hours to get into New York’s Eataly. But I guess everyone, at some time, craves the closest version of ‘home’, even when they’re nowhere near it.

The main portion of Eataly is open at 10. But here’s the secret: the door on 5th Avenue opens for good coffee and croissants at 8. Order the Latte Macchiato, you won’t regret it! (Delicious, even if you’re not Italian.)

  1. Nice pics ‘n’ food. Actually, I’ve been there a couple of years ago.
    I’m Italian (proud to be . . . ), and my young brother lives in Brooklyn and works in Manhattan. Just one thing , if you allow me to be fussy . . .this lovely Prosciutto is from a city called Parma, not Palma. Anyway you’re doing a great job with pic and food!
