eataly

 

When I am in Chicago, it’s basically impossible for me to NOT want to stop at Eataly. Located just two blocks away from Michigan Ave, it’s near all the Chi-town action, but transports you to Italia. The first time I experienced Eataly, I was in Florence, and whenever I go back, I feel at home. This place is heaven: part grocery store, part food hall, part restaurant. IDK what more you could want! They have a few restaurants that remain the same throughout the year, and one that changes seasonally. My last trip to Chicago, included a stop at their fall/winter restaurant, Baita, where we enjoyed raclette cheese and delicious cocktails. Check out some of the gorgeous items we found at Eataly below, and read more about my trips to Chicago in my travel guide!
