I have to admit, Katie and I got a LOT accomplished that Tuesday morning while my nephew was in school.
After the donut shop we continued our journey to the Flat Iron district.
Conveniently located just across the street was something on Katie's NYC bucket list: Eataly. I had never heard of the place, but according to Katie it is somewhere Mario Batali and other Food Network folks like to shop, which is enough to interest me! (random vague side note: I saw a guy there that I KNOW is on tv, but I haven't figured out who he is yet...)
The whole place is one big store, make that HUGE store, but broken down into different areas and stalls and mini-shops and restaurants.
I got a big kick out of the boards next to the Vegetable Butcher:
But also really enjoyed all the different shapes and colors of foods and drinks. I was in foodie/photo heaven!
I think I could have stood at the pasta counter eternally...
...but we had to hop back on the subway and pick up the little man from pre-school and head home for a nap.
MORE Tuesday (to be continued...)
