Eataly – a chain of Italian food halls – can be found all over the world but they’ve so far been absent from London. But now there’s big news as they are heading to the City next year, taking over what was The Royal Bank of Scotland at 135 Bishopsgate. And at 42,000 sq ft, it’s going to be the largest standalone food hall in the country.
If the others are anything to go by, Eataly London will be a one stop shop for all things Italian, with over 5000 products spanning pastas, cheese and salami to olive oil and wine on offer. Mamma Mia! There’ll also be three restaurants, including fine dining concept Terra, on site alongside a zero-waste refill store, London’s biggest Italian winery, and a cooking school. Here’s hoping there’s a whole lot of ‘nduja.
Opens early 2021
