Eataly Chicago Will Open in November


"Mid-November," to be precise, according to Mario Batali, who tweeted the information this afternoon. The long saga of former tenant Texas de Brazil is finally over, construction has commenced, and all the cheese and salumi that fits into 63,000 square feet is on its way over from Italy. We’ll keep you updated on any opening details we may hear, including more on the attached restaurant Joe Bastianich promises will serve a menu devised “in homage to the Eastern European tradition of sausage in Chicago."
