If you think you’re in the wrong place, that means you’ve arrived at Eatalian Cafe. Located in a giant warehouse next to other giant warehouses, Eatalian Cafe isn’t exactly a cafe. It’s a giant Italian food emporium that feels like a laidback version of Eataly. There’s a long wrap-around pizza counter with a kitchen, espresso bar, gelato stand, and bakery. It’s overwhelming, so here’s your game plan: start with one of their pizzas (the prosciutto-topped Mimmo is our favorite), end with a cup of gelato, and take a box of pastries for your bedside table.
