My belly is rejoicing

HuffPo | Joe Satran | Eataly To Open DC, LA Locations As Early As 2012

Eataly is big. The 40,000-square-foot Italian food-and-drink emporium already comprises a wine store, a beer garden, a bakery, a grocery store and six restaurants, all on 23rd Street in Manhattan. Eataly is so big that Little Italy's merchants have been complaining that it's stealing business from Mulberry Street. But by the end of 2012, if all goes according to plan, it will get bigger.

That's when Joe Bastianich says he and Eataly's co-owners (who include superstar chef Mario Batali) hope to have opened their second of three American branches of Eataly they currently have planned—in Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
This is great news.

When Mrs SB7 and I went in to New York last Christmas we made two stops: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Eataly. Such are our priorities.
