Last year, we reported that a massive new Italian emporium would be coming to the Back Bay of Boston, and now we have learned that its opening is only a few months away.
According to a post from The Boston Globe, Mario Batali's Eataly is expected to open in November where the Prudential Center's food court had been, with the place having nearly 50,000 feet of space and including sections for pasta, seafood, meats, cheeses, and more, along with several restaurants and possibly a brewery. Celebrity chef Batali and his business partners are also on the verge of opening a location of Eataly in Lower Manhattan, with the two new outlets joining existing shops in Manhattan's Flatiron neighborhood and Chicago along with others in Europe, Asia, and South America.
Mario Batali is also behind a location of Babbo Pizzeria at Boston's Fan Pier.

Confirmed: Mario Batali's Eataly Will Open at the Prudential Center in Boston's Back Bay
