A True Italian Experience @Eataly NYC x Manzo

Address: 200 Fifth Avenue, New York


When in search for Italian cold cuts and Gelato in New York City, Eataly comes to mind. Both an Italian grocery and restaurant destination, this well-known spot is located just next to the iconic Flatiron building! Opened in 2003 and originally based in the United states, Eataly has now span from its 5 US locations to Italy, US, Dubai and even Asia!

Smells of pizza and the hustle and bustle quickly transports you to Italy in the middle of Manhattan! Rows of fresh Italian produce and a display cabinet of freshly made pasta is far cry from what Eat.it in Hong Kong is trying to represent.

Smells of pizza and the hustle and bustle quickly transports you to Italy in the middle of Manhattan!

Reminiscent of higher-end delis like Dean & Deluca (NYC) and Citysuper in Hong Kong, but twice the size; you can simply walk-in for a casual meal, groceries or a cup of coffee on-the-go. Something for everyone.

Both captivating and colorful, Eataly truly gives you an authentic Italian experience within New York city.


Casual, industrial-style restaurant set just beside the fresh pasta counter, Manzo serves no-fuss classic Italian plates. It’s menu, both affordable and generous, has a great selection of both Pastas and meat dishes, as well as a great wine list to pair with all that delicious food!
