Hidden Gem of Chicago

Eataly Chicago
43 E Ohio St
Chicago, IL 6061
If you’re attending the annual meeting in Chicago and just want a quick bite to eat, or you don’t want to wait in the long lines at the Purple Pig, just head cross the street and around the corner to a new gem in Chicago, Eataly – a wonderful place to get amazing food and roam the isles. 
Eataly is a bustling Italian marketplace with restaurants and take out counters.   It has 23 eateries; seven of them are sit-down restaurants and Baffo is a fine dining restaurant located on Grand Ave, behind the marketplace.  Eataly can be a bit overwhelming but if you take your time you will find some amazing food ranging from La Piazza that serves Pizza, meats, Cheeses, fried dishes and a selection of wines, to La Birrera that is a microbrewery and beer themed restaurant.    It offers house brewed ales and Italian beers.  Don’t forget to leave some room for the gelato station or my favorite, the Nutella station. If you don’t have lots of time to eat you can pick up a Focaccia sandwich or have a sit down dinner or lunch: either way, this place won’t disappoint.
