Eataly tends to be a happy place where the variety of markets, the open plan of a European market, and places to sit down and actually eat. The quality of the foods compares to the best anywhere and, like many trendy places, the staff are personable.
Offering the 'Italian' market experience without the friction or joy of language, old architecture, or expense or adventure of travel, has its pros and cons.
Oddly, it is what I do too. I offer old-world artisan masonry skills in the building of new-world brick ovens which will then cook or bake old-world delicacies with new-world convenience.
