Eataly was set up by chef Mario Batali.  It is a huge Italian eatery and food market at Madison Square in Manhattan.  (Where Fifth Avenue, Madison, Avenue and 23rd Street meet).

There is so much space, people have been lost there and found passed out on the floor, having gorged themselves on Italian cheeses and meats.

For those, who remember the children’s books about the mouse Anatole, by Eve Titus, picture a human, in a giant Italian grocery, instead of a fictional French cheese factory.  The human can make himself useful, placing signs in the food as Anatole does, to avoid going to jail.  It can be his community service.

We had to eat lunch in the vegetable place.  The only place that still had seats, but don’t consider it a demotion, it was very good.  Talked to two nice women, who grew up in Scranton.  One was in New York, the other, her sister was visiting from L.A.

We will always have the mailing list.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
