Rumor: Eataly To Open At Brickell City Centre (Updated)

  • Pin It

Eataly, a high-end Italian food market, is rumored to be among the first stores to be opening at Brickell City Centre.

Eataly has a 50,000 square foot store in New York, and the chain is opening a 60,000 square foot Chicago branch later this month.

Eataly’s New York store employs 150 Italian-born workers out of 400 employees.

 

Update: Cristina Villa, PR Manager at Eataly sends us the following:

No, we haven’t signed any contract in Miami and I don’t believe we are even remotely close to signing one. We are looking at possible cities for expansion, and Miami is included, but nothing is certain at AT ALL at this stage. We still don’t know which US city will be the next one.

    I recently went to the Eataly in Rome. It’s amazing and has specially foods for example the only place to buy “00″ flour is Lorenzo’s in north Miami. Then there are restaurants and classes as well. Seeing that we already have 3 publix and a whole foods coming, this is a great compliment and will make for a great neighborhood.

      Is that a joke? Miami has the second largest Italian-born community in the United States. Italians don’t migrate to Boston and Chicago any more.

    Maybe they can hire Argentinians and pass them off as Italians.

    If they can prove that they really need Italians because of their special knowledge in the food, ability to speak Italian etc.. They may be able to get visas for Italians. Also there is a decent sized Itslian community here.
