Eataly opens a new food hall in Bishopsgate



Eataly opens a new food hall in Bishopsgate

With the cutting of the pasta “ribbon”, as per tradition, the newest Eataly food hall in Bishopsgate was inaugurated on 20 May by Ambassador Raffaele Trombetta, Mayor Sadiq Khan, Sally Jones of British Land, Eataly CEO Nicola Farinetti and Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti.

Eataly Bishopsgate is one of the chain’s largest branches, with 300 members of staff and almost 13,000m2 of floor space.

Ambassador Trombetta gave a speech congratulating Oscar and Nicola Farinetti on the project. He said that the quality of Italian food and wine is more appreciated than ever by British consumers and that Eataly offers a an exciting new outlet for around 5,000 of these products – a window into Italy. He added that he hoped to soon be able to welcome British visitors to the country again.

Mayor Sadiq Khan expressed his enthusiastic support for the project, saying that the opening of Eataly, which would doubtless quickly become a go-to place for Londoners, was testament to the vibrant, international character that continues to make London an attractive global destination.
