Eataly NYC

it is now open - 23rd St and 5th Ave - A big emporium , crowded - overpriced - nice to visit but then go shopping for same stapples at Fairways or Zabar...or Arthur Avenue in the Bronx ! at half the price at least ! The gelato was really very good, worth the expense if you're into it ! had a seafood salad.(.tiny for the price), 1 shrimp, 3 mussels, 2 rounds of calamari, 2 cockles - my partner had the fritto misto, fish breaded and fried to the hilt, dry - not worth the price charged -
anyway, been there, done that...no more

Who makes the best baguette?

You can tell a good baguette by squeezing it between your fingers - as the french do - and chewy is not acceptable ! the crust should be...crusty...and there shouldn't be too much dough..so I usually prefer to buy "ciabatta" as a replacement -
froggy me !
