Having lost permission to sell bottles of wine until October, Eataly has replaced the booze with the next best thing: Nutella. The Flatiron mega-market debuts a dedicated Nutella bar this Monday evening, stocked with all manner of baked goods begging for a luscious spread of chocolate-hazelnut decadence.
Nutella vehicles include Eataly's housemade rustic bread ($2.80), muffins ($4.80) and crepes ($5.80). There's also an option to sandwich the spread between two cookies. Is this heaven? Yes, and the first round's on Nutella.
Visit Valhalla beginning Monday, May 12th at 5 p.m., when the Nutella Bar opens to the public with gratis slices of bread slathered with Nutella until 9 p.m.. After that, get your fix daily beginning at 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
