On Sunday, after Sarah headed back to Utah, I decided to continue with the vacation theme of the previous five days, so I played hooky from church (something I can do because I’m an adult) and headed to Eataly with Kelly. If you know anything about me, you will know that this place is my new favorite. It is mini Italian version of Harrod’s Food Hall. I could spend hours there. Hours. This was the perfect way to spend a Sunday…especially since my apartment would have felt so lonely after having had Sarah there for five days. (More to come on that…including a taping of Jimmy Fallon, an Ingrid Michaelson concert, and lots of girl talk and laughter.)
It is this amazing combination gourmet grocery/bistro/restaurant. To steal a line from Kelly’s post about the experience, “Can I just say… praise be to Eataly and all that is holy in the world of pork, cheese, and bread.” And I will add gelato.
After making one full tour of the place, we finally settled in the meat and cheese area and ordered the most amazing meat and cheese plate to share (can I tell you how much I love having friends who love cheese as much as I do?). Kelly and I were both in heaven. Seriously. It was the perfect meal.
|The bread was amazing…I even got a loaf to take home.|
I can tell this is going to be a new favorite place of mine. How could it not be? And of course, we had to finish the trip with a little gelato (I highly recommend the pistachio. Delicious!)
