Eataly is like an Italian supermarket Disney World, where Mario Batali is the Walt Disney behind the place. And while it can be a total sh*tshow of tourists and annoying people hanging around Michigan Avenue a lot of the time, there’s no denying there are some excellent things to eat inside of here. That includes Il Pesce, the seafood restaurant within Eataly focused primarily on fish. Warm up with a seafood pasta like linguine with clams, and transition yourself into some sort of whole grilled fish. Just know that the whole experience may involve fighting with a European tourist or two.
