Hi all, looking for some opinions and suggestions -
My friend and I are going in May to check out Eataly - I do not get into the city often so I want to make the most of my short day trip - should we eat at Eataly or go somewhere else nearby? My friend is an extremely picky eater so our best bet is italian - is there a place we should not miss? I am hearing the food at Eataly is overpriced and just ok. Or if you did have something delicious there, what was it? How is the pizza?
We do not mind taking a subway to another place to eat but we will only have about 5 hours in the city so we have to cram a lot in. I also love to try cupcakes - I have had all the ones in Grand Central, Crumbs and Melissa's (minis) - I am constantly on the search for "the best." Also, anyone have the gelato at Eataly?
Thanks in advance!
