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.

Eataly: La Birreria
We didn't see it coming, but we actually really dig the beer garden on the roof of Eataly. You’ll be hard pressed to find one with a larger variety of good things to eat, and the crowd is much more pleasant up here than in the tourist packed insanity that exists underneath it.
Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta
The food at Eataly: La Pizza & Pasta is perfectly decent, even pretty damn good at times. But it's always just so damn crowded.
