In November 2002, the Eataly concept was born from Oscar Farinetti’s idea sketched on a piece of paper. The idea was simple: to gather under one roof high-quality food at sustainable and reasonable prices for ALL, celebrate Italian biodiversity, and create an informal, natural, and simple place to eat, shop, and learn.

The name EATALY is a fusion of two words:

EAT and ITALY

As a result, Eataly stands for “Eating Italian” which encompasses the history and the food culture of Italy, the ease to prepare its dishes, and the many qualities that Italy has to offer. After five years of research and hard work, the first Eataly opened its doors in Torino on January 27, 2007, when an old vermouth factory was transformed into Eataly Torino Lingotto – the very first multifunctional marketplace dedicated to Italian excellence in the world.

And the rest is history. Since then, Eataly has expanded, with more than 35 locations throughout Italy and the world.

A pioneer of Spanish tapas in America, he is known for his avant-garde cuisine and award-winning group of more than 30 restaurants, including the two Michelin-starred minibar by José Andrés.

Inspired by the historic mercados of his home country, José has created a new and unprecedented space for socializing with family and friends, business lunches with colleagues, or a quick meal on the go. Mercado Little Spain is an all-day dining destination for food lovers, an entire neighborhood of delicioso.

The Migrant Kitchen

Chefs Nas & Dan

In October 2019, two friends—Nas and Dan—teamed up to create The Migrant Kitchen: a long-dreamt-of catering business that focused on providing meaningful opportunities for immigrants to showcase the cuisines and cultures of their home countries while earning more than just minimum wage. In doing so, they had absolutely no idea (like any of us) that COVID-19 was about to turn the world upside down…

Once COVID hit NYC, Nas and Dan quickly pivoted from their standard catering operation to serving food to frontline healthcare workers fighting against the pandemic. As COVID continued to change the way we lived and ate, our operation quickly grew into something much greater. Within the next few months, TMK was serving over 60,000 meals a week to food insecure communities across NYC.

Now we’re getting back to our original mission – this time we’re sharing everything we’re cooking with the entire city.

Our locations in the Upper East Side, Brooklyn and (soon) the Upper West Side serve American food inspired by immigrants. We aim to prove that shawarma and carnitas are just as American as hamburgers and apple pie.
