The giant Italian food hall brand Eataly will open in the City’s Broadgate development, next to Liverpool Street Station next year, according to the Evening Standard.
The newspaper quotes property sources as saying “A 40,000 sq ft branch of the Eataly food hall concept — with restaurants, shops and cafes — is planned for a site on Bishopsgate near Liverpool Street station.”
Eataly was founded by Oscar Farinetti in Turin, northern Italy, in 2004. It now has 35 food halls — which combine restaurants and food retail. Branches operate across the world, including in Tokyo, São Paulo and a landmark site in New York City. Eataly’s most recent megasite opened in LA.
There are a total of five Eataly halls across America and last week Eater reported that the company has plans to open stores in San Fransisco and Las Vegas in the next two years, as well as “more international locations in cities such as Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, and London.
