Last week I visited NYC to meet a (beautiful and true) friend of mine for some mama - (minus) kids time. (So rightly needed!)
We visited "Eataly", the largest artisanal Italian food and wine marketplace in the U.S.A.,owned by Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich and Lidia Bastianich.
I can't tell you how amazing the place was !!!
(Food heaven).
Lovely friend + great wine + fantastic food + much needed conversation = fabulous evening :)

We sampled some...


Mushroom bruschetta...

Spaghetti squash crostini, white bean and Rosemary crostini...

Baba al limoncello...

There's nothing wrong with having two desserts. (I had a pear gelato as well and I'm not a bit ashamed).

Bought some fresh pasta!! (Butternut squash with amaretto cookie stuffed ravioli .) WOW !!
Also bought some Italian beer that was infused with flowers ! Delicious!!

Thought about truffles ...

Walked all around the market to see all the great Italian products!! Jams, bread, chocolate, beer, pasta, produce, cheese, sweets, gadgetry and books.
So wonderful !

Of course, best shared with a great friend.

Buon Appetito!! ;)
