Dining at NY's Eataly: Le Verdure

I flew out to New York at the end of May to celebrate my five-year college reunion --and of course eat. I was determined to make a pilgrimage to Eataly and I accomplished it towards the end of my visit. Three dear friends from college and I met outside the warehouse-style building and wandered inside the Italophile's dream.  The layout of Eataly is open and seamless so "restaurants" and shops flow from one to the next- everything is exposed and there are no real walls. This makes for an interesting dining experience as shoppers and tourists are constantly walking by your table. After much deliberation, we settled on the restaurant Le VerdureDespite the unconventional layout, we had a wonderful dinner sharing different vegetarian foods from the Piemonte region, with a little twist here and there. Eataly may not have existed when I was living in New York, but it is a great addition to the city.
