Italian food market and restaurant Eataly will open its doors to the UK in Broadgate, London early next year with the creation of 300 new jobs in hospitality.
Eataly London will host three restaurants, including the finer dining concept Terra, opening in summer 2021. Eataly will also host London’s biggest Italian winery, food to go, and a zero-waste produce refill store.
Situated at Broadgate, next to Liverpool Street Station and on the edge of Shoreditch, the emporium will also be home to Eataly’s renowned cookery school. Chefs will provide in-house and online classes in everything from creating regional specialties to wine tasting, and Italian cooking for children.
With a host of on-site specialists, Eataly places emphasis on teaching and demonstrating its produce, and with ‘craft’ the focus of the London store, visitors can expect a full sensory immersion into the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Italy – with live demonstrations, tastings and open kitchens and production labs throughout the store.
Eataly will also source fresh produce locally. Milk, for example, which will be used to make fresh cheeses on-site, will be sourced from small, local farmers to guarantee quality and a sustainable supply. Eataly London will also offer food delivery and catering options.
The opening will also create circa 300 vital new jobs across a range of positions.
Eataly CEO, Nicola Farinetti comments: “London has been a key target in our global expansion plans for some time now and we’re happy to be bringing our vision and a love of high-quality food to the UK.
“Eataly is all about taking the Italian gastronomic culture abroad, making it accessible to all in a celebration of the craft, taste and traditions of Italian food and drink. Bringing people together is at the heart of what we do and this is even more important in the current climate.”
