Batali Italian Empire [On The Road: NYC]

As you mention Mario Batali you think Italian cuisine, he has open and run many successful restaurants, holding several awards and accolades, including outstanding restaurateur by the prestigious James Beard foundation. One of his places is Eataly, the place is like a megastore for Italian cuisine, opened originally in Torino Italy by Oscar Farinetti. Batali and Bastianich in 2010 gave New York their version of the Torino concept. 

The place
The place is like Disneyland for Italian food lovers, products, restaurants, even cooking school classes. You can spend hours browsing around and enjoying Italian food, pizzas, pasta, salumi, prosciutto, cheese, dolci, birra, and of course espresso. 

Products
Pasta
We sat after wandering around for a while at La Piazza to have Salumi & Formaggi, ordered some wine, a cheese table, with ricotta, gorgonzola, parmigiano reggiano, pecorino toscano, and taleggio, some figs, almonds with honey and wine, and apricot honey mustard seed and chillies, some San Daniele prosciutto and ready to mangiare. Absolutely beautiful.

Cheese reminds me the Seinfeld episode "The Foundation"

Jerry: Hey, Georgie! I'm doing some research down at the coffee shop, your story's the one 
George: My story? 
Jerry: Yeah, your widower story's tested through the roof. When are you getting out of there? 
George: Uh, excuse me, Wyck. Uh, are we, uh, almost done here? 
Wyck: Oh, no, not even close 
George: I can't go 
Jerry: What do you mean you can't go? There's two really girls sitting at the counter eating grilled cheese. Cheese, George! Cheese!
