Eataly’s FiDi location is a lot like the one on 5th Avenue, except it’s located in a corporate mall that could double as an interactive ride at a Black Mirror theme park. So if you’re ready to brave a swarm of Brooks Brothers suits in bright lighting, Eataly is useful for weekday lunch or picking up a jar of $400 barrel-aged, truffle-infused anchovies. They have different counters where you can find caprese sandwiches and prosciutto flatbreads, and even a few places to hide out and get an $8 glass of wine during their weekday happy hour if you’re killing time. The downtown location also has a restaurant called Osteria Della Pace that’s separated from the rest of the Eataly mall scene where you could hypothetically eat dinner.
