There's nothing like sweater weather to serve as the perfect excuse for some major edible indulgence. After all, fall is the season of the harvest, Halloween treats, Thanksgiving, and, for the more globally minded gourmands among us, Eataly's Restaurant Fest. Now that's a reason to celebrate.
The beloved dining festival returns to New York's favorite Italian marketplace at both the Eataly Flatiron and Eataly Downtown locations this October 15th through 31st, and, if you consider yourself any sort of self-respecting food lover, you're not going to want to miss it.
Highlighting the exciting new menus from Eataly's chefs, the event showcases seasonal ingredients with signature Italian flair. Think: housemade ravioli filled with pumpkin, sweet butternut squash, hearty mushrooms, and more. The best part? You can enjoy it all without breaking the bank in two different Manhattan neighborhoods..
From 2-course $25 meals at La Pizza & La Pasta and Il Pastaio to a 2-course $39 menu of seafood at Il Pesce and luscious greenmarket fare at SERRA by Birreria, Eataly's seasonally revamped greenhouse rooftop, the specially-priced offerings are too good to pass up.
And, since we can all agree that everything tastes better washed down with a quality glass of vino, it's worth mentioning that for $29, guests can also treat themselves to a bottle of regional Italian wine, hand-selected by Eataly's experts. Cheers to that!
Whether you're planning an unforgettable date night that's sure to impress or are due for a night of culinary delights with your crew, Eataly's Restaurant Fest is clearly the perfect pick for any occasion.
Mark your calendars, like, yesterday people!
