Major Italian Food Hall Eataly to Open in London

The Italian food hall chain Eataly is set to come to London, with a new location in Broadgate in the City. Joining a growing list of locations globally, including Tokyo, Chicago, Stockholm and more, the location will showcase a celebration of Italian food and drink .

Founder by Italian entrepreneur Oscar Farinetti in 2004, the Eataly chain now boasts 35 megastores, each combining restaurants and food retail focused on Italian produce, and cuisine.

The move would be another strong addition to the area which was once regarded as being just an office environment before becoming a ghost-town at the weekends. With the openings of locations such as The Ned, a 5* hotel, come private member's club, with four restaurants and a number of bars, as well as the area's proximity to ever-more popular areas such as Shoreditch and Old Street, there's more and more reasons to visit the City without a briefcase and tie.

An exact launch date is yet to be announced, with plans still seemingly processing on the location in Broadgate. Find out more about the Eataly brand on its website here. We recently also covered the launch of several new food markets in the capital, including locations at Fulham Broadway and Victoria - the rise of the food hall in 2018. Read about it here.
